NEWS 75 Donna Dawson is CW's (previously) retired senior writer emeritus, now residing and writing in Lindsay, CA, US, in the foothills of the Sierras. high-performance composites structures that you can actually still build in your garage," he insists. Bieker designs for boat- builders of note who compete in the America's Cup, and for Riptide Boats, and numerous other sailboat and powerboat brands. He also designed the all-carbon fiber B53 catamaran just entering the construction phase at Gold Coast Yachts (US Virgin Islands). at said, he hopes to see the I-14 remain as accessible as it has. "If we end up in a world where the only composites that we use are the high-temperature-cure prepregs and autoclaved parts built in specialized shops, then basi- cally it means there won't be a path for people like me to learn composites from designing and building boats like this." e first B6 was built in 2011 and 15 have been built to date. Crews sailing them have won three I-14 World Championships, two Canadian National Championships and two Japanese National Championships. High-tech but Accessible pre-pregs sheets shapes 665 Lybrand St. PO Box 977 Postville, Iowa, 52162 563-864-7328 Application Engineering and Material Development Predictable and Affordable Composite Materials makers of PRESENTER PRESENTED BY EVENT DESCRIPTION: Sensor-based manufacturing is one of the key challenges for the automotive industry on its way to mid- and high-volume CFRP production. e aviation industry also needs sensor-based data to control and verify the manufacturing process aiming for high quality composite components. Dielectric analysis is the method of choice to qualify the curing process of a thermoset or the crystallization of a thermoplastic as well as the flow behavior of the resin. is webinar will introduce you to the measurement principle of dielectric analysis and focuses on solutions to reduce cycle times and scrap, and therefore costs in thermoset based CFRP manufacturing. PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN: • Principle of Dielectric Analysis • How to integrate Dielectric Analysis into a mold • New developments in DIelectric Analysis • What can Dielectric Analysis tell us about the material behavior Dielectric Analysis—The Method of Choice for Real-Time Composite Process Analytics October 10, 2018 • 11:00 AM ET REGISTER TODAY FOR WEBINAR AT: SHORT.COMPOSITESWORLD.COM/NETZSCH10 ALEXANDER CHALOUPKA
