Moulds used in the production of composite parts are known as composite tools. The material utilized to make these composite tooling could be varied depending on the production run of composite parts. Fiberglass, epoxy boards, and other materials are frequently used for prototype parts, or parts that are produced in small quantities and may be cured at room temperature. Tooling has long been used to shape or texture objects and structures in a variety of industries, including aerospace and defence, wind energy, transportation, and construction. Composite materials are progressively being embraced by numerous industries due to their notable benefits such as weight reduction, excellent performance, and corrosion resistance. Tooling materials used in the manufacturing of composite parts are critical components in achieving the intended efficiency, shape, design, and mechanical performance. Curing temperatures, desired lifetime, cost, component size to be formed, and compatible coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) with the part material all influence tooling material choices
COVID-19 Impact analysis
- The epidemic wreaked havoc on the market and called the turning point by interrupting the supply chain, resulting in lower Boeing and Airbus production rates, a significant drop in car output, impeded wind turbine blade manufacture, and a halt in building operations.
- Manufacturers have been compelled to discontinue producing composites materials as a result of the tight limitations, which has hampered purchasing of composites materials, resulting in a reduction in the entire global market.
Top Impacting Factors
The composite tooling industry is booming, due to factors like rising demand for lightweight parts across industries like automotive and aerospace, as well as wind energy producers. In the next years, it is projected to stimulate demand for composite tooling. Complex composite shapes are easier to develop with carbon fibre composite tools. Aerospace, wind, automotive, and other industries are among the primary applications covered by the composite tooling industry. By value, aerospace accounted for a significant percentage of the composite tooling market. The extensive usage of composite tooling for creating robust composite components is credited with the high growth of aeronautical applications. The demand for excellent composite tooling is expected to rise as the use of composites in the aerospace industry grows. Due to competition from invar and other materials, the market may be hampered. The advent of 3D printed tools, on the other hand, will open up chances for the composite tooling market.
- Tencate Advanced Composites Holding BV, a Dutch carbon fibre composite material manufacturer and distributor, has been acquired by Toray Industries Inc., a Japanese integrated chemicals and materials company. The company can offer a bigger product variety after combining the distribution channels of the two enterprises.
- The corporations of Woodward, Inc. and Hexcel Corporation have mutually agreed to end their merger arrangement. The termination was accepted by the boards of directors of both firms and is in response to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on both the aerospace and industrial sectors, as well as global markets in general.
