Hexcel Corp. Research Report
On April 22, 2013, Hexcel Corp. (Hexcel) was awarded with a Special Jury Prize, in conjunction with the magazine L'Usine Nouvelle, in recognition of the FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control) bracket made from Hexcel's HexMC technology, developed in partnership with Safran Composites. Jean-François Veauville, Hexcel's Aerospace Sales Manager, said, "We cut carbon fibre prepreg tape into 50 mm long x 8 mm wide strips, and, arranged them randomly to give the part quasi-isotropy, which means that the mechanical resistance is virtually the same in all directions. This is impossible to achieve with traditional methods of using prepreg, such as draping and weaving." He added, "Of course such a radical change in technology does not happen overnight. HexMC material has several advantages, but it is best exploited with proper engineering and manufacturing practices. This is why engineers from Safran Composites and Hexcel's Applications Technology team worked together for two years on the development of these engine brackets." HexMC technology can be used to make high performance composite parts with complex shapes and also produce them in volume. This innovation could be used on many other applications, especially on nacelles and landing gear.
