New postponement sees JEC World moved to 2022

After thorough consultation of clients and partners, the JEC World team has decided that due to the continuing impact of the Pandemic, it has postponed the next edition of JEC World to March 8-10, 2022.

Amidst growing concern among our exhibitors and partners surrounding the critical situation of the Covid-19 restrictive measures and other limitations in place in many countries, the JEC World team has decided to work on a new timeline to hold the next edition of the event in the best conditions in 2022.

Therefore, JEC World exhibitors were asked to respond to a survey offering two new dates to determine which one would suit them the most. It appeared that 89% of respondents favoured holding the next JEC World session from March 8-10, 2022.

“The coronavirus pandemic situation has taken the central stage, so in light of the current situation, it would not be possible for us to satisfy our customers’ requirements for such an international trade fair as JEC World in June,” said Eric Pierrejean, CEO of JEC Group. “We truly regret having to make this difficult decision once again.

“However, we are all committed, starting today, to deliver the best JEC World experience to our clients in 2022. While waiting for welcoming the international composites community back to Paris in March 2022, JEC Group team is preparing various online meetings in June, enabling the entire composites community to discover trends and innovations and to connect.″

The leading composites event will now take place from March 8-10, 2022 at Paris Nord Villepinte and online for a new augmented experience.

“JEC World 2022 and the augmented platform will bring the international composites community and specialists together to resume business, network, hold business meetings,” added Adeline Larroque, show director and EMEA events. “They will also have the chance to participate in conferences, workshops, and discover the latest composites innovations.”

Kordsa companies unite to offer lightning strike protection and EMI shielding fabric

Reinforcement leader Kordsa has announced that its US-based companies Fabric Development Inc. and Textile Products Inc. now provide lightning strike protection and EMI shielding fabrics to the aerospace industry to increase resistance and durability with its improved shielding ability.

Lightning strike protection and EMI shielding fabric – an inter-woven wire fabric that is a fibre/wire hybrid – reduces the energy density of the lightning flowing onto the composite structure and therefore provides greater impact resistance improving life cycle of the part it is applied.

According to statistics, a plane can be struck by lightning once a year on average, making lightning protection highly essential in aircrafts for the safety of various components including generators, fuel valves, electrically controlled power feeders, and electrical distribution systems. However, unlike their metal counterparts, composite structures do not conduct away the electrical currents and electromagnetic forces generated by lightning strikes. As the use of composites has expanded during the past three decades, a wide range of lightning strike protection fibre has been adopted for aerospace industry.

Having an extensive experience in working with high performance fibres, reinforcement leader Kordsa’s US based companies, Fabric Development, and Textile Products, manufactures lightning strike protection and EMI shielding fabrics with a wide range of fibre and construction options. Both companies also offer custom designed lighting strike protection and EMI shielding fabrics engineered to meet specific customers’ needs for weight and conductivity including both conductive and structural requirements.

The lightning strike protection and EMI shielding fabric is an integrated metallic wire, or better a fibre and wire hybrid. It reduces the energy density of the lightning flowing onto the composite structure. Less energy density means less damage. Therefore, this fabric provides greater impact resistance while improving the lifecycle of the part.

Lightning strike protection and EMI shielding fabrics provide weight advantage compared to alternate approaches as the structural fibres and conductive wires are interwoven as one fabric and can be produced with multiple fibre systems such as carbon, glass, and aramid along with multiple conductive wires such as copper, aluminium, bronze, nickel and Monel. Wires are chosen to meet a required conductivity. The fabric can be prepregged using standard equipment.

Also, it is easier to mould in comparison to expanded metal and features exceptional cutting and handleability during kitting or lay-up, and is practical to combine into the surface ply of a composite layup resulting in a superior surface finish. It serves dual purposes as structural layer and conductive surface layer and is used for lightning strike protection and EMI shielding applications.

NCC and Dstl partner to facilitate R&D in future combat aircraft composite structures

NCC and Dstl partner to facilitate R&D in future combat aircraft composite structures

An exciting new partnership has been formed to explore the art of the possible for the next generation of lightweight, strong and resilient combat aircraft composite structures.

This will range from innovative approaches to overall structural layout, manufacturing and assembly to the optimal combination of detail features, and material selection.

The National Composites Centre (NCC) and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) are leading the programme through their joint steering group and wider community, which will bring together the greatest minds from academia, leading defence primes, SMEs and other parties outside of the traditional defence sector. The Advanced Design of Composites Structures for Future Combat Aircraft (ADCoSCA) programme includes a balance of intramural research at NCC, and extramural research, both of which could be influenced by the community.

The partnership kicks off with a competitive invitation to organisations to pitch their design and research ideas in order to influence the content of the project, and where and how aspects of it are undertaken. The steering group will then work with the community to develop and downselect these ideas into a coordinated series of funded research projects.

The UK needs to be at the forefront of cutting-edge technology with its defence and combat capabilities to support our national security interests, to protect our people, and to safeguard our prosperity. Investing in advanced research across the range of potential combat aircraft concepts is essential to ensure the defence and security needs of our front-line commands are met. This spans next-generation manned combat aircraft, unmanned adjuncts, and the associated range of development and procurement approaches (e.g. spiral development).

Composites are used in all areas of modern society to make things lighter, stronger, smarter, more durable, and more sustainable. Thanks to the extensive use of composite materials, 15,000km non-stop flights from the UK to Australia are now possible. Wind turbine blades now measure in excess of 100m, generating more clean energy to drive the UK towards a carbon neutral and electrified future. High performance vehicles including modern fighter jets (e.g. Typhoon) and Formula 1 cars are 80% made from composite materials, which equates to 40% of the total weight for the jet and just 25% for the Formula 1 car. This proves just how effective composites are, however, we know that composite technologies still have a lot more to offer. The NCC and Dstl will innovate, push boundaries and exploit composite technologies for combat aircraft even further through this new partnership.

As a world-leading composites research facility with an unrivalled breadth of industrial scale capabilities, the NCC already works with large defence organisations and others to develop and de-risk their technology, and it works on future product development programmes related to the defence sector.

Richard Oldfield, chief executive of the NCC, said: “We’re delighted to work closely with Dstl to increase the UK’s capabilities and innovation in the use of composites technologies for combat aircraft. As a world-leader in advanced composites design and manufacture, the NCC is uniquely placed to help enhance Dstl’s know-how for future combat aircraft composite structures. That’s why today, we are launching an open call for the brightest and most innovative ideas from a range of organisations so we can work together to equip our Armed Forces with the next generation of high tech, resilient and efficient defence capabilities. This will play a crucial role in how the UK responds to the most complex challenges and threats to national security that our country may face.”

Steve Simm, air systems programme manager at Dstl, said: “Dstl is the science inside UK defence and security. To perform its role, Dstl must identify and harness the most advanced technologies, and working with the NCC and the wider UK community provides an exciting opportunity to explore the art of the possible in the design and manufacture of composite structures for the next generation of UK combat air systems. The emphasis of this work is the exploration of innovative technologies and approaches to reduce mass and through-life cost, and to increase performance, availability, adaptability and modularity.”

The two primary aims of the programme are:

  • to develop airframe design concepts through trades studies and worked examples; and
  • to systematically collate and develop the underpinning data upon which the airframe design trades are built, including the performance of composite materials and features, and to identify and mitigate those features that are constraining performance and cost.

Priority shall be given to those transformational ideas that identify and mitigate existing limitations through design, such as through innovative structural layout at the platform and sub-assembly level; through detail features that permit increased operating strain; through design approaches that provide extreme levels of damage resistance and/or tolerance; and through design approaches that provide extreme levels of modularity, adaptability, and part-count reduction.

The steering group would like to engage the UK community, drawing from SMEs, academia and traditional primes as well as parties outside of the traditional defence sector, and would like to explore gearing opportunities such as matched funding and collaboration.

All intellectual property owned by individual organisations will be protected and tracked with any engagements involving the steering group.

The first stage of the process is for organisations and interested parties to pitch their ideas and capabilities through an Expression of Interest. Parties with successful will then be invited to engage in further planning of the research programme, and to submit formal bids for funding. If successful, funding will typically be awarded before the end of March 2021. Thus, interested parties have an opportunity to influence the work of programme and the selection of those undertaking it, and potentially to undertake aspects of the programme themselves.

Further information on the competition process and timetable is available on the NCC website. The steering group is holding a webinar on Wednesday 13 January 2021. 14:00-16:00, for anyone interested in applying to find out more and ask any questions. You can sign up through the Eventbrite page.
