Featured Product from Heraeus Noblelight America LLC
Heraeus Noblelight Ltd., based in Cambridge (UK), the center of excellence for flash systems technology, announces their selection as a CAMX 2022 award finalist in the ‘Unsurpassed Innovation Award’ category. The award entry titled, humm3 Xenon Heating Innovation - Lowers Cost and Increases Sustainability in the Mass Production of Composite Pressure Vessels and Pipes, showcases the current and future impact the new humm3 enterprise, a Xenon heat source, delivers to the composites industry.
The CAMX Awards recognizes innovations that will significantly impact composites and advanced materials. The ‘Unsurpassed Innovation’ Award category celebrates a product with a design that incorporates low-cost materials for high-volume applications that can change the outlook of a particular market.
Enabling low-cost, rapid production of sustainable components
Heraeus Noblelight’s humm3 enterprise heating technology harnesses the unique properties of the Xenon flashlamp to provide the energy and control needed to process thermoplastics to produce parts in a single step, massively reducing production time and cost. The broad spectral output is absorbed by a much greater selection of materials than other powerful heat sources such as lasers, so enabling the use of cheaper and more sustainable materials, such as glass fiber and bio-derived composites. >Read more
