Carbon fiber company Hexcel will be exhibiting at the SAMPE Long Beach conference, taking place from 22-23 May in Long Beach, California, USA.

Among technologies on display will be the company’s HexAM additive manufacturing technology that combines PEKK thermoplastics with carbon fiber to produce 3D printed HexPEKK parts for aerospace. Hexcel acquired this technology from Oxford Performance Materials in December 2017. HexPEKK structures are suitable to replace traditional cast or machined metallic parts in aerospace, satellite and defense applications.

Hexcel will also be presenting its HexShield thermal management system that provides high temperature resistance in aircraft engine nacelles.
