Custom design and production of woven structural shapes for hybrid composite structures.

intersecting_pi_0
Bally Ribbon Mills’ Advanced Product Group designs and produces woven structural shapes for hybrid composite structures used in aerospace applications, bridge structures, sporting gear, and medical equipment. The lightweight, totally integrated design of Bally’s unique woven structures affords higher levels of strength and opportunities for new design applications previously unattainable with build-up or weld-reinforcement areas.

Emerging trends have created unique applications and the demand for continual advancements in weaving technology to satisfy the aerospace, defense, medical, industrial, and commercial trades is increasing. Given these developing trends, Bally’s Advanced Products Group has devoted their efforts and experience to the design and manufacture of complex shapes using “difficult to weave” fibers while minimizing yarn damage and controlling costs.

Product Design and Engineering

The Advanced Product Group is a team of skilled engineers, technicians and manufacturing personnel dedicated to the development of solutions to your challenging woven material needs. We offer over 70 years of first-hand experience in weaving including:

The Advanced Product Group markets a wide selection of woven materials that can be combined with virtually any available resin system. These products are suitable for a variety of prepreg, wet lay-up, and resin transfer operations. They also can be supplied as a dry preform or greige fabric in “B” stage prepreg, or as an RTM finished part.

Bally Ribbon Mills’ advanced products are constructed from a wide variety of reinforcing fibers and textile forms. Carbon/Graphite, Nicalon®, quartz, Kevlar®, glass, metal, hybrids and other fibers can be utilized in the construction of our 2-D and 3-D woven preforms.

Preform Design & Development

Given the customer’s product constraints, desired mechanical properties, cost of product, operating temperature, and operating environment, Bally Ribbon Mills is capable of handling every stage of preform development, from the initial design to prototype development, to final product design and fabrication.
