Aerospace science is increasingly turning to composite materials for their low weight, high strength, low electrical conductivity and durability. Composites make sense for aircraft construction. Being about half as heavy as aluminum for comparable structural support, composite structures permit aircraft to fly on less fuel. For example, in designing the 787 Dreamliner, Boeing used composites for much of the airliner’s structure, rather than the traditional aluminum sheeting. Consequently, the 787 flies twenty percent more efficiently than the 767, making it Boeing’s most fuel-efficient aircraft.
Achieving escape velocity with aerospace composites.
At Advanced Composites, we believe that composites are, indeed, the future of aerospace design and construction. To date, the primary barrier to widespread implementation of composites in aircraft manufacture has been cost. Composite materials, traditionally, have been more labor intensive to produce than, say, machined aluminum. However, as the composites industry grows and evolves, we expect composite components and composite materials to become increasingly cost-competitive with other options. Certainly, Advanced Composites Inc. is doing its part to drive down the cost of composites manufacture. Our pin ring helped streamline the filament winding process, and our engineers and designers continually innovate for technological breakthrough in the realm of composites fabrication.
Advanced Composites Inc. has a record of partnership with the aerospace industry.
Advanced Composites has a long record of serving as a secondary and tertiary manufacturer for major aerospace contractors, and has provided critical composite parts for the Boeing C-17, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the Airbus A400M, and other aircraft, including several military aerospace projects. Each project and product is unique unto their own
