Investigating the possibilities of fibre alignment in composites

Investigating the possibilities of fibre alignment in composites
Animals as different as lions, piranha and ants have something in common: their ability to hunt in groups. The anatomy of a wild hunt is complex. Each member of the pack has a role to play, and a specific position in the group’s formation. Just a step out of line could be the difference between dinner and empty stomachs. When producing composites, placement is also key. Here Lauri Turunen, Product Business Owner at Exel Composites, investigates the possibilities of fibre alignment in composite materials.

How composites benefit the transportation industry

How composites benefit the transportation industry
In 2018, an estimated 142 billion gallons of gasoline were consumed in the United States, with Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) attributing to 20% of this figure. With the environmental impact of fuel clear to see, composite materials have the power to drastically reduce unnecessary fuel consumption. This is only one way composites can benefit the transportation industry. Here, Jari Sopanen, Product Business Owner for Transportation at ExelComposites, explains more.

The applications of composites in smart cities

The applications of composites in smart cities
In 2019, Auckland won a national award for its smart city innovations, including the SafeSwim programme, which provides real time data on beach safety and water quality. Organisations such as Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) are dedicated to integrating smart technology into cities across New Zealand - but how can we create a completely synergistic smart city? Here, Stephen Smith, Head of Asia Pacific Sales and Business Unit Manager at Exel Composites, explores the importance of composites in smart city infrastructure.

True innovation from unconventional places

True innovation from unconventional places
Some of the world’s best ideas originate from the strangest of places. It’s rumored that Nintendo game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto, developed what became the legendary game Donkey Kong while sitting in the bath. Similar unexpected environments, including the humble Finnish sauna, have also been the source of impressive innovation. Here Kim Sjodahl, SVP, Technology and R&D at Exel Composites explains more.

Designing with composites in mind

Designing with composites in mind
Not just for pizza toppings, mushrooms are transforming the construction industry. Using bioengineering, architects could soon be able to grow their own bricks by mixing together mycelium and chopped corn husks to create blocks that are solid enough to form durable structures. Material choice is vital to a product’s success and requires careful consideration. Here, Gert De Roover, Buildings Segment Owner at Exel Composites, explains why manufacturers should consider composites in their project designs from the start.
