Dry Carbon Fiber & Liquid Epoxy UAV Inlet Duct

Duncan Treen Case Studies

PROBLEM –Fabricate a 52” long by 12” diameter inlet duct for a tactical UAV at a lower cost than hand applied carbon pre-preg and an autoclave cure while maintaining equal performance and quality. OPPORTUNITY – Drive down overall cost without impacting performance by delivering a composite inlet duct using dry carbon fiber and epoxy resin infusion with an oven cure. SOLUTION – The tactical …

Switching from Carbon Fiber Prepreg to Resin Transfer Molding

Duncan Treen Case Studies

Find out how switching from carbon fiber prepreg to resin transfer molding (RTM) can save 67% per composite fuselage PROBLEM – Fabricate a 1/2 scale UAV fuselage at a significantly lower cost with highly similar weight, performance, and quality OPPORTUNITY – Switch to lower cost materials, out-of-autoclave cure, while deploying novel manufacturing technology SOLUTION – Dry carbon fiber socks, liquid …
