Many of us start out the year with grand plans and positive resolutions to change or improve something in our lives, be it personal, professional or both. Ironically, January 17th, otherwise known as “Ditch New Year's Resolution Day” is gaining popularity. Sad but true. It’s the day when many people abandon their New Year's resolutions.

As I mentioned in my previous blog “Aerospace Doesn't Need Inconsistent Autoclave Composites Quality”, the impending show was something I was looking forward, not only for the new experiences but to share what I’ve learned about our Failure is NOT an option commitment to providing 100% tested pre-made autoclave thermocouple systems to aviation/aerospace autoclave manufacturers.

Aerospace Doesn't Need Inconsistent Composites Quality [SAMPE Seattle 2017]

Ever since my childhood, I've been wildly fascinated by planes, rockets, and the very cool idea of deep space travel. Buzz Lightyear was my hero. As an adult, the idea of traveling to the stars has continued to intrigue me and has led me into a career focused in the aerospace industry. The Herculean effort required in order to accomplish such an engineering feat seems to becoming more and more of a reality.

 

Beyond funding, one of the countless important items that could hinder our progress of space exploration is the impact of inconsistent or poor composites quality.

I have to admit, it’s absolutely amazing to be a part of the composites industry and witness the steady growth, continuous improvement and developing technologies. Business is booming. As reported by JEC*, from 2014 to 2016, the market grew in value to $82 billion USD, or by 11%. Not too shabby. Every indication is the growth will continue.

Top 5 Things You Should Know about Autoclave Thermocouple Junctions

Posted by Pat Durkin

Whether you make composite parts for commercial aircraft, defense, automotive or sports, you know why you do what you do and how to do it. That’s why you have clients who trust your products and trust your team to make them to the highest quality every time. 

 

The good news is chemistry and physics are the same. They'll never change. It really doesn’t matter if you are making barrel section 41 for the Boeing 787, the Predator drone composite wing or a super lightweight Tour de France racing bike. Recipes for production might be different between manufacturers but the end goal is a constant: Make a lightweight structure that can contribute to advancement of aircraft, military and consumer lives.

Are you in the aviation/aerospace market? Do you manufacture aerospace composites?

 

Then no doubt you are aware that CAMX 2016 is right around the corner. The exhibition booth spaces have been sold out for months. It helps that a well-known Mickey Mouse operation is located next door. I may even visit Disney’s California Adventure Park myself.

Aerospace Composite Manufacturers: How NADCAP & AMS2750E Grow Business

Posted by Pat Durkin

I had the privilege of attending the latest NADCAP meetings in Montreal late in June. Because so many of our customers in both metallurgy and aerospace composites manufacturing require NADCAP certification, I want to be sure we’re on top of all the requirements. So, I regularly attend two or three meetings yearly and sit in on the Composites Task Group.
