Hexcel has been awarded a long-term agreement by Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company, to supply advanced composite structures for the CH-53K King Stallion heavy lift helicopter program. The award significantly expands Hexcel composite content on the aircraft.
Hexcel is a major supplier of advanced composite materials for the A321XLR airframe and the CFM International LEAP-1A engine that powered the aircraft flown today. These innovative lightweight composite materials provide weight savings and performance enhancements that reduce fuel consumption and emissions as well as long-term maintenance costs.
Hexcel has developed a new product range that combines Hexcel resin systems made with bio-derived resin content with natural fiber reinforcements to create material solutions for Automotive, Winter Sports, Marine and Wind Energy applications.
Archer Aviation and Hexcel have entered into a letter of intent covering a proposed relationship for the supply of high-performance carbon fiber material that would be used in the manufacturing of Archer’s production aircraft.
Hexcel has developed a new technology for out-of-autoclave (OoA) processing that delivers a game-changing reduction in process time and cost for marine manufacturers without compromising mechanical performance.
Hexcel has broken ground on an expansion that will double the size of its existing engineered core manufacturing operation in Morocco to meet increased demand from aerospace customers for lightweight advanced composites.
Hexcel will showcase its unique portfolio of carbon fibers that have been optimized for thermoplastic processing applications when the company exhibits at the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) Thermoplastic Composites Conference, beginning March 22 in San Diego.
