Advanced Manufacturing of Carbon Fibre Composites for Aerospace Applications
Slade Gardner from Lockheed Martin explains that we are currently going through a rebirth of materials science thanks to nanotechnology.
Carbon fibre-based composite materials are being seen more frequently and they will continue to gain in popularity as manufacturing costs come down and automated manufacturing processes are more widely employed, which will also help to improve quality, reproducibility and decrease labour costs.
He also gives some insights on how Australia can gain a foothold into the carbon fibre industry.
This interview was recorded at the Carbon Fibre - Future Directions conference, held in Geelong Australia and organised by VCAMM and Deakin University.
