The Singapore-headquartered company is the world’s largest third-party maintenance, repair and overhaul organization. Airframe and engine maintenance remains a core business, but ST Aero in more recent years has been building up its design engineering and manufacturing capabilities as well as investing in new technologies. New VIP Capabilities ST Aero is displaying at the show a mockup of a VIP aircraft interior reconfiguration. The company owns Aeria Luxury Interiors in the U.S. and will be using its U.S. business to help it offer similar VIP configuration services in Singapore for the Asia-Pacific market. On the eve of the airshow, ST Aero opened a VIP aircraft reconfiguration center at Seletar Airport.

The Aeria Luxury Interiors facility in San Antonio, Texas, also focuses on the larger jets and recently completed its first BBJ cabin reconfiguration. Virtual Reality. Composites manufacturing from a different angle. Manufacturing excellence was the focus at this week's SME AeroDef event in California.

Composites manufacturing from a different angle

Scott Lewit, shown here, was the Jud Hall Composites Manufacturing Award winner. A bunch of really smart engineers showed up in Long Beach, CA, US this week for the Society of Manufacturing Engineers’ (SME, Dearborn, MI, US) AeroDef conference and exhibition. All were focused on looking at ways to manufacture products — composite or not — more efficiently. In fact, some attendees admitted they were there to learn more about composites from the technical sessions. 2016 winners. With 24 categories ranging from raw materials to processes, to applications in various fields such as Aeronautics, Automotive, Medical, Consumer Goods and Better Living, the winning projects offer a complete overview of the composite value chain.

IDI composites international introduces new R&D center

(USA). The multi-million dollar facility is adjoined to the 110,000 square foot manufacturing plant and serves a mission to advance existing technologies and discover innovative new materials that meet the evolving desires of design engineers across a breadth of industries. Research and development efforts at the new center will focus on exploring and advancing material possibilities in four key areas: In addition to developing research and development strategy for IDI’s worldwide locations, the R&D center will provide expert technical assistance to IDI’s six production facilities around the globe.

The completion of the center coincides with a milestone moment for IDI as the company prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2016. Covestro fait une entrée en Bourse fracassante. C’est la meilleure entrée de l’année à la Bourse de Francfort, en Allemagne.

Covestro fait une entrée en Bourse fracassante

Covestro, filiale plastique du géant allemand de la chimie Bayer, est parvenu à lever 1,5 milliard d’euros (Mrd €), soit 62,5 millions d’actions à 24 € l’unité, prix d’émission. Mais, dès son introduction, le 6 octobre 2015, le prix de l’action est passé à 26 € (+ 10 %), ce qui a valu à la jeune entreprise une standing ovation dans la salle des marchés de Francfort, selon l’AFP. LIFT welcomes national composite institute to its Detroit headquarters. The facility will support production-scale composite materials development focused on vehicle lightweighting in collaboration with automotive companies.

LIFT welcomes national composite institute to its Detroit headquarters

The composites scale-up facility will be run by Michigan State University (MSU), which leads IACMI’s vehicle technology area in Detroit. “Taking weight out of vehicles will require different approaches; we are focused on metals and IACMI is focused on composites,” said Lawrence E. Brown, executive director of LIFT. “But we are both working toward the same goal with many of the same industry partners, so it only makes sense for us to be physically together. All of the national institutes are based on collaborations, and we expect this one to be particularly strong.”
