Standard Products AAR produces a variety of lightweight honeycomb and foam-cored flat panel products. Our high quality composites reduce weight, extend the service life of components and lower overall maintenance costs.
Automotive Composites Consortium: Focal Project 4: Structural Automotive ... two automotive structures, a structural composite underbody and a lightweight composite seat, as well as the materials and processes required to produce them.
Such structures may find application in designing of furniture seats. This is why, emulating cell materials with open cells, auxetic structures are built on macro scales , , , . By analogy with porous materials, in this experiment the object of interest comprised seat structures which form skeletons of a regular spatial system.
The composites GMT and GMTex developed by Quadrant make it possible to replace structural and semi-structural vehicle parts made of metal with lighter, fabric-reinforced composite components. These innovative materials are already firmly established in large-series production.
CAMISMA’s car seat back: Hybrid composite for high volume Recycled fibers, in-situ polymerized PA12 and steel inserts combined in one-shot process to cut weight 40 percent at competitive cost, cycle time and safety.
Stratas Composite Seatback Panel The first mass produced composite rear seatback panel for the automotive industry Designed to replace stamped steel panels found in rear seat frames, the Stratas composite seatback panel offers significant weight savings, reduces effort to lift or fold the seat and a completely flat seat back surface.
Magnesium part requires specialty fasteners to attach to seat structure and plastic latch Magnesium as a material is more expensive when compared to a composite plastic. Magnesium applications worldwide have significantly larger carbon footprint compared to plastic composites.
Composite seat structure project success Composite seat structure project success A unique, ultra-lightweight car seat back made from carbon fibre composite is the outcome of a successful Excellerate Australia project between Deakin University, Futuris Australia and other industry partners.
Each composite seat back structure 400 employs a composite construction that is lightweight and producible in a cost-efficient manner. For example, each composite seat back structure 400 can be manufactured using molded composites, resulting in a weight of less than 3.0 pounds.
24TH INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF THE AERONAUTICAL SCIENCES NEW COMPOSITE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING METHODS FOR GENERAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES Alan Anderson, Curtis Longo and Paul Teufel Toyota Aviation Business Development Office
While the main focus in seating is on weight reduction through new materials, structures and manufacturing techniques, this must be set against a background of the natural function of the seat. The driver’s seat is the most complex, and generally the heaviest of the seats, due to the functions it must perform.
composite structures. For A380, Airbus benefits from earlier programmes because it was the first manufacturer to make extensive use of composites on large transport commercial
Aircraft Interiors, Seats and Composite Structures EnCore supplies aircraft interiors, seats and composite structures to the aerospace community through a combination of innovative designs, manufacturing excellence, and a personal commitment to our employees and customers.
Products: UAV primary flight structures, tie rods, compression struts, high-altitude telescope structures, cooling tubes, shuttle actuator mounts, and turbine fan blades Benefits : Improved weight savings, increased fuel efficiency, enhanced durability, and superior structural properties make composite materials ideal for aerospace applications.
Composite Structures, an International Journal, disseminates knowledge between users, manufacturers, designers and researchers involved in structures or structural components manufactured using composite materials.
With equivalent performance in terms of safety, the CAMISMA seats are more than 40% lighter than conventional seat structures. Source: Johnson Controls. The CAMISMA project (Carbon-Amide-Metal-based Interior Structure using a Multi-material System Approach) has been running since 2011, and the initial focus was on developing the multi-material system.
Composite seat structure project success A unique, ultra-lightweight car seat back made from carbon fibre composite is the outcome of a successful Excellerate Australia project between Deakin University, Futuris Australia and other industry partners.
Examples of Composite Materials As the world-leader in composite manufacturing, ICE uses a variety of composite materials to create high-quality, custom products of all shapes, sizes, and complexities.
Figure 12 shows in greater detail the hinge mechanism 13 pivotally connecting a back frame structure and a seat chassis structure 21 on the left side of the seat frame structure in an inside-out view. A support plate 22 is rigidly attached to the rear end of the seat chassis structure 21.
