Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM), a designer, developer and manufacturer of highly specialized engineered woven fabrics, will highlight its 3-D weaving capabilities at JEC World 2020, which will be held from 3-5 March 2020, in Paris-Nord Villepinte, France, Booth M73 in Hall 6. BRM will highlight its film infusion capabilities for 3-D woven joints, woven thermal protection systems (TPS), and advanced woven composite 3-D structures, including 3-D near-net shapes.

In BRM’s film infusion process, a frozen sheet or film of resin is infused onto the custom 3-D woven joint. Film-infused 3-D woven joints ship as pre-made assemblies, ensuring consistent quality and saving customers the cost of infusing the resin themselves. BRM has perfected the science and art of 3-D continuous weaving to fabricate such structures as Pi – π, double T,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 subassemblies including stiffeners and joints.

“Drop by the booth to see lightweight materials like 3-D woven fabrics and learn about our multifunctional thermal protection systems (TPS) for atmospheric re-entry,” BRM says.

BRM has implemented innovative weaving technologies to develop complex webbing for aerospace products. The woven TPS billet to be showcased at the booth is part of a line of products that 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.

Also, on display will be lightweight, cost-effective, advanced woven 2-D and 3-D 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 weaves complex shapes automatically, eliminating many costly, time-consuming, and labour-intensive processes.
