ACMA Declares Winners for Awards for Composites Excellence

January 08 2018

The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) has declared the winners for the Awards for Composites Excellence (ACE), sponsored by Composites One. The winning and finalist entries were on display in the ACE Award Pavilion at the fourth annual CAMX-The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo, from Dec. 12-14, 2017.

In the design category, the Innovation in Green Composites Design Award went to Oak Ridge National Laboratory for developing and demonstrating large-scale bio-based 3-D printing used to 3-D print a large portion of the world's largest green printed pavilion structure.

The design category also features the Most Creative Application Award, which was presented to The Aerospace Corporation for developing a processing method to manufacture replicated composite mirrors with high optical quality and dimensional stability under varying hygrothermal environments.

In the manufacturing category, the Equipment and Tooling Innovation Award went to Autodesk for its comprehensive platform that provides an end-to-end solution for composite manufacturers. The manufacturing category also features the Materials and Process Innovation Award which went to Gifu University (Japan) for its novel process that provides a high flexibility of design, high fabrication yield, and easy shaping for a carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) molding product.

Finally, in the market growth category, the Infinite Possibility Award is given to Ashland Performance Materials. This year, Ashland collaborated with Ford and Magna International on composite subframe that not only reduces the weight of a vehicle but also consolidates the number of parts needed in its assembly by over 80 percent.
