Rollable composites could be rolling off the production line soon
Composites have replaced metals in numerous applications thanks to their high performance and strength combined with their lighter weight. However, the difficulty in joining them means they must be manufactured as complete ‘monolithic’ components. Combined with their stiffness, packaging, transport and mounting are a challenge. MadFlex is an innovative composite sandwich design and production process leading to flexible or rollable panels that can be implemented at existing facilities for about the same cost. The EU-funded MadFlex project is conducting a feasibility study to fine-tune applications, the business plan, a partnership deal with a manufacturer and the route to venture capital support.
