Mitsubishi fuel-efficient lightweight carbon-fiber composite program

On July 4th, 2018, Dr. Hoang Tien Dat, the R&D Director of Sharetech, came to visit and join the conference of Advanced Composite Materials at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Ltd, Nagoya, Japan. As a global leader in engineering and manufacturing, MHI delivers innovative and integrated solutions across a wide range of industries from commercial aviation and transportation to power plants and gas turbines, and from machinery and infrastructure to integrated defense and space systems.

 At this conference, Dr. Dat introduced a new project to gradually replace traditional materials with carbon fiber composite (CFC) materials for reducing aircraft weight and improving fuel consumption efficiency. These novelty materials have been applied for Mitsubishi planes which have sold for ANA and JAL airlines serving domestic customers, with a capacity of 90 guests/time.

Currently, Sharetech also promotes the CFC technology for machine parts made by 3D printing or additive manufacturing process.

The CFC technology community is working hard together to push these advanced applications in real life. This technology can contribute to significantly reducing the consumption of energy and mineral resources which is gradually exhausting the planet.
