A the forthcoming JEC World 2019 which will be held from March 12-14 in Paris, Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM) will showcase its film infusion capabilities for 3D woven joints, woven thermal protection systems and advanced woven composite 3D structures, including 3D near-net shapes.

In BRM’s film infusion process, a frozen sheet or film of resin is infused onto the custom 3D woven joint. Film-infused 3D woven joints are supplied as pre-made assemblies, ensuring consistent quality control and saving customers the cost of infusing the resin themselves.

BRM has perfected the science and art of 3D continuous weaving to fabricate such structures as ‘Pi – π’, double T and H and other complex shapes. Offering the optimal blend of strength, durability and structural integrity, these complex woven structures are used primarily in aerospace applications, often in airframe structural components and sub-assemblies, including stiffeners and joints.

Visitors are invited to call at the company’s stand M73 in Hall 6 to see lightweight materials such as the 3D woven fabrics and multifunctional thermal protection system developed for NASA space vehicles. BRM has implemented innovative weaving technologies to develop complex webbing for aerospace products. The woven thermal protection system to be exhibited was selected as the critical component of the heat shield on the Orion Crew Capsule, which helps protect against the extreme temperatures of atmospheric re-entry during missions to the moon, asteroids or Mars.

Also on display will be lightweight, cost-effective, advanced woven 2D and 3D composite structures. Using a multi-dimensional continuous weaving method, BRM produces textiles that can be fabricated into near net-shape structures. These advanced weaving capabilities offer customers new solutions that reduce weight and cost. The technology produced complex shapes automatically, eliminating many costly, time-consuming, and labour-intensive processes.

Bally Ribbon Mills, based in Bally, Philadelphia, designs, develop, and manufactures highly specialised engineered woven webbing, tapes, speciality fabrics, woven preforms and two dimensional and three dimensional structural fabrics. With more than 95 years of textile manufacturing experience, it has earned a reputation for meeting new advanced design challenges.
