Composite manufacturing is a growing industry, even in these tough economic times. Established companies, who have recognized product lines, are looking to expand their opportunities. New companies are springing up to take advantage of new demands. Wind energy is a new demand that has provided new opportunities for manufacturers, of every size. Composite materials have many uses, with new applications being developed at a rapid pace.
Composite materials are generally associated with boats, because its used to enhance the boats features. Composite material allows for sleek hulls and are used on innovations designed to make boats faster. Whether an individual is a boating enthusiast or a competitor, they are aware of the beauty and strength, that modern composite materials provide. Unknowingly, casual observers have even observed the beauty and technology that composite manufacturing has brought to the boating industry.
People may also be aware of these materials are used in airplanes. Large passenger planes to small hobby planes sold in a box, all require composite materials in the manufacturing process. Composite manufacturing is responsible for parts used in the production of aircraft also, from the fuselage to the wingtip. As in the boating industry, composite materials used in aviation combine light weight with high strength. The benefits of these materials are not just in their efficiency and strength, but in their beauty as well.
People may not be aware of the various uses of it, in areas outside of the boating and aeronautic industry. One of the newest growing uses of composite materials is in the growing field of alternate energy.
Alternate energy, be it marine, solar or wind generated, benefits from materials that are strong and reliable. Which is why they are being manufactured using composite materials as the composite manufacturing industry grows. The alternate energy industry, with grants available from both the public and private sectors, represents an opportunity for both growth and profit in the industry.
Composite manufacturing is also responsible for innovations in the area of furniture, both for individual consumers and businesses. Manufacturers, using carbon fabricated materials, can create beautiful and innovative designs that could not be easily made using other manufacturing processes. These materials give designers new options to create furniture that isn’t just beautiful, but multi- functional too.
For manufacturers, in every area, be it marine, aeronautic, energy, furniture or in new applications of composite materials, the process can be easily adaptable to changing lines with minimal expense. It encourages innovation and creativity, while minimizing costs. This process produces materials that are strong, reliable and visually pleasing too. This makes composite manufacturing a win win opportunity for the designer, the manufacturer and the consumer.
