  • Publication number: 20210008816
    Abstract: A form for a thin reinforced composite material includes a plurality of separate linear fiber strips, each having a rectangular cross section composed of reinforcement fibers. The linear fiber strips laid out in a two-dimensional base layer defining a shape of the form. A first successive layer formed with the plurality of separate linear fiber strips contacting the base layer, the linear fiber strips laid out in the first successive layer interspersed from the separate linear fiber strips in the two-dimensional base layer. A method of forming the form includes arranging the plurality of separate linear fiber strips on a substrate and tacking the plurality of separate linear fiber strips to the substrate with a plurality of stitches. A method of forming a unitary reinforced composite component from the form is further provided. The resulting component having high strength and light weight and being efficient to manufacture.

  • Publication number: 20200262107
    Abstract: A process is provided for forming a pre-consolidated fiber preform for use in a molding process. The process includes layering a plurality of preform sheets on a pre-consolidation mold. Heating the plurality of preform sheets to a first temperature. Applying a first pressure to the plurality of preform sheets using the pre-consolidated mold. Maintaining the first temperature and the first pressure and heating for a first duration of time. A second pressure and a second temperature are then applied to the plurality of preform sheets for a second duration of time.

  • Patent number: 4813219
    Abstract: A conductive yarn includes a continuous non-conductive carrier thread having a relatively low modulus of elasticity; a continuous metal thread; and the carrier thread being wrapped around the metal thread. A process for making such conductive yarn includes the steps of pulling the continuous metal thread off a first package; pulling the continuous carrier thread off a second package; applying a relatively high tension to the carrier thread with respect to the tension on the metal thread as both threads are being pulled off their respective packages; and wrapping the tensioned carrier thread around the pulled metal thread. Apparatus for performing the method is also provided.
