Solvay and Fokker join forces to develop aircraft composites
Solvay and GKN Aerospace’s Fokker business have formed a partnership to promote the use of thermoplastic composite materials on aircraft.
Solvay will become a preferred supplier of lightweight composite materials to Fokker.
Thermoplastic composites can reduce the weight of aircraft components by up to 25%, when compared to traditional metallic solutions, the companies say.
‘Solvay’s partnership with GKN Aerospace’s Fokker business is an important step in our goal to become the leading supplier of thermoplastic composite materials to the aerospace, oil & gas and automotive industries,’ said Carmelo Lo Faro, president of Solvay’s composite materials global business unit. ‘A deeper understanding of the market’s needs and challenges in adopting these new materials together with Fokker’s expertise in design and manufacturing will enable us to develop technologies to industrialize the manufacturing of thermoplastic composites and parts.’

The EPMA has held a range of seminars and short courses covering different aspects of PM technology including Sintering, Hardmetals, Powder Injection Moulding and Additive Manufacturing.
These two day courses are particularly beneficial to technical and managerial personnel looking for a more comprehensive understanding of the PM process.
The unique combination of high level industrial specialists and academics provide unrivalled insights into the practical capabilities and applications of the powder Metallurgy (PM) process. Since 1996 over 800 delegates from both industry and academia from all over Europe have attended EPMA PM seminars and had the opportunity to meet and learn from some of PM's leading experts.VISIT EVENT WEBSITE
