Bally Ribbon Mills Announces Film Infusion Capabilities for 3-D Woven Joints Unique capability saves customer processing steps Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM), an industry leader in the design, devel- opment, and manufacture of highly specialized engineered woven fabrics, announces its film infusion capabilities for 3-D woven joints. In the film infusion process, a frozen sheet or film of resin is infused onto the custom 3-D woven joint, saving customers the trouble of infusing the resin themselves upon delivery of the BRM-made joint. BRM has perfected the science and art of 3-D continuous weaving. Their industry-leading research, design, and fabrication expertise enables them to solve specific challenges in innovative ways. BRM’s Advanced Products Group has developed technologies to fabricate 3-D woven structures such as “Pi – π,” double “T,” “H,” and other complex net shapes. These complex woven structures are used primarily in aerospace applications, often in air- frame structural components and subassemblies including stiffeners and joints. They are custom made to fit the application. BRM uses the film infusion process to infuse a variety of resins to these complex 3-D woven shapes. This ability allows BRM to ship its 3-D woven joints as pre-made assemblies, saving customers processing steps that require time, work, and specialized machinery. BRM’s film infusion capability also allows them to control more steps of the 3-D woven joint assembly manufacturing process, ensuring consistent quality control.
