ARRIS, a California-based advanced manufacturer enabling the use of high-performance composites in mass-market products, transportation, and industrial applications, informed a project with the U.S. Army’s Michigan-based Combat Capabilities Development Command Ground Vehicle Systems Center (DEVCOM GVSC) focused on vehicle seats to demonstrate significant vehicle weight reductions through part consolidation, topology optimization, and an aligned continuous carbon fiber composite structure.This initial project will utilize ARRIS’ uniquely scalable Additive Molding(TM) manufacturing technology platform. The project is being contracted through LIFT, a public-private partnership between the Department of Defense, industry leaders, and academia.Army vehicles have been increasing in weight over time due to new technology and safety components for soldiers, and this partnership is part of the Army’s effort to advance the use of cutting-edge technologies that enable high-strength, lighter, more fuel-efficient tactical vehicles with superior mobility and protection. By replacing an assembly of metal components in crew seats with a single continuous fiber-reinforced composite (CFRC) structure, ARRIS will demonstrate the advantages of its manufacturing technology for broader vehicle applications.For identifying Growth Opportunities for the High Temperature Composite Resin Marketplease visit https://www.lucintel.com/high-temperature-composite-resin-market.aspx
