MLI Blankets from Web Industries Improve Commercial Space Offerings

March 25, 2021

An article by Lee Smith, Web Industries’ Thermal Insulation Business Development Manager, in the latest edition of Cold Facts International.

Needs for custom-made, space proven components and systems take on added urgency as launch dates proliferate and space facilities around the world hum with activity. Supply partners like Web Industries (CSA CSM) that offer such components can support space initiatives and help space and satellite companies meet ever-tightening launch deadlines.

One component that requires a custom- fabricated approach is multilayer insulation (MLI), often called MLI blankets. They provide passive thermal management during the mission, protecting passengers and on-board equipment. The blankets are composed of multiple layers of reflective, metalized plastic film, alternated with spacer materials that prevent conduction between the layers. MLI blankets for space applications have up to 30 layers, with each successive layer adding to the blanket’s overall insulating effectiveness.

Although initially the design of other vehicle systems takes priority, MLI blanket design can hardly be considered an afterthought. Well designed and manufactured blankets contribute to a mission’s success, while poorly designed ones can result in deficient fit, excess weight and slower integration times.

Custom Fabrication

Space vehicles and satellites come in all shapes and sizes, including 1U, 50kg, 500kg and up. They carry different payloads, follow different orbital paths and vary widely in weight. After liftoff, they are exposed to varying amounts of thermal radiation from sunlight and other sources. Accordingly, MLI blankets must be designed and custom-fabricated with their specific application in mind to function effectively. There are no off-the-shelf solutions.

MLI blanket production is a mix of automation and craftsmanship. Space companies should partner with MLI providers that have a track record of successfully making MLI blankets for space applications with flight heritage. These providers typically have advanced software programs like CREO Design Essentials that automatically convert complex 3D models into flat patterns for fast iteration and efficient assembly, and automated cutting tables that create clean blanket edges.

Sewing Precision

Precision sewing in MLI blanket construction is essential. Skilled technicians securely sew blanket layers together via small holes along the edges using thread made from strong synthetic fibers such as Kevlar® or ceramic materials. The stitches must pass through film, fabric or nonwoven materials and hold them securely in place. This operation requires expert craftsmanship. Poor sewing practices can cause threads to break, and shrinkage of the overall blanket dimension.

Experienced MLI blanket suppliers have developed sewing and fabrication techniques that promote superior blanket construction and performance. These include automated hole punching and film overlays. Stitch holes, for example, can be punched beforehand to give predefined locations for hand stitching. Attention must be paid to small details, such as determining the right number of holes along the blanket’s edges. Too many holes can introduce additional possible failure points during use. Film overlays from blanket suppliers allow easy inspection of sewn features, eliminating the need for multiple measurements.

Further customization occurs upon MLI blanket prototype production. The blankets normally undergo testing at space facilities and are modified based on test results. Initial telemetry data from constellations provides additional feedback that helps further optimize MLI blanket design.

Co-sourcing Partnerships

Many space and satellite companies maintain existing in-house MLI production operations. They can benefit by forming co-sourcing partnerships with outside MLI blanket suppliers. Co-sourcing supports internal operations with application engineering and technical support and reduces the time required to fabricate completed blankets. This can relieve deadline pressures and allow companies to respond more quickly to tight launch windows. Further, purchase can be made of a finished and fully inspected MLI blanket including FAI (first article inspection) with one purchase order.

MLI blankets play an unheralded but critical role on space missions. They are customized for diverse applications and varying space conditions and contribute to overall mission success.

France Relance. Aeronautics. awards grant to Omega Systèmes, a Web Industries company, for automated composites slitting

March 10, 2021

Omega Systèmes’ GM cites strategic value chain expertise as key to grant selection

MARLBOROUGH, Massachusetts, USA, March 10, 2021 – Omega Systèmes, a Web Industries company, has been awarded a grant by the France Relance [Recovery] plan for the design and development of aeronautic thermoset and thermoplastic slitting solutions.

Funds from the grant will modernize and automate Omega Systèmes' equipment at its Nantes plant. The plant will supply next-generation aircraft manufacturers and contribute to the industry's economic rebound from the consequences of the COVID-19 crisis.

Under the grant’s project, OMEGA-WEB 2022, Omega Systèmes will design and develop in France innovative solutions for slitting thermoplastics and thermoset composite materials. Central to the project will be in-line automated inspection to support French and European R&D projects and the large-scale production of composite parts by AFP (Automated Fiber Placement) and ATL (Automated Tape Laying). The company will deliver higher value-added products to the market that meet the requirements of future aeronautical programs.

According to Omega Systèmes General Manager Jim Sharkey, France Relance awarded the grant based largely on Omega’s strategic value chain expertise. “We can accelerate the time to market from material selection and management to the cutting, packaging and delivery of materials,” Sharkey says. “Plus, Web can deliver scale to its aerospace customers, and at a reduced cost, to accelerate composites materials’ speed to market.”

Omega Systèmes has manufacturing locations in Nantes and Bordeaux, in the heart of France’s aircraft manufacturing region, and is supported by Web Industries in Stade, Germany and its six North American plants. Nantes is home to Omega Systèmes’ European Center of Excellence for Composite Development & Commercialization. It provides the European market with access to technical teams, material quality control and pilot lines for demonstration, rapid development, testing and qualification of composite material formats.

 “We supply Tier 1 and Tier 2 aerospace equipment manufacturers,” Sharkey notes. “Having unique capabilities in France and Europe, and with a Center of Excellence for thermoplastic and thermosetting composites, allows us to offer the market increased production capacity and supply for new aircraft programs designed with primary and secondary composite structures. We will help OEMs reduce aircraft weight, improve their carbon footprint and offer price-competitive products. Our high-performance cutting capabilities, for example, increase productivity by a factor of 5 for the supply of precision slit tape delivered in spooled form.”

According to France Relance documentation, its funding is aimed at “accelerating the diversification, modernization, and ecological transformation of the aeronautics...[sector].” Investment support and assistance for the aeronautics sector was announced on September 3, 2020, by Bruno Le Maire, Minister of Economics, Finance and Recovery.

“France Relance lists innovation and modernization as two primary goals,” Sharkey reports.

“With our state-of-the-art solutions for the slitting of thermoplastic and thermosetting composite materials, Omega Systèmes is uniquely equipped to support France’s aeronautics sector in achieving these critical goals.”

Omega Systèmes is currently addressing three composite slitting objectives as specified by the grant:

Nonwovens Step Up

March 04, 2021

Companies throughout the nonwovens industry worked overtime to help save lives during the past 12 months

By the fall of 2020, needs in the U.S. for personal protection equipment (PPE) had reached critical status. Web Industries responded to the national manufacturing crisis by repurposing composite material cutting lines at three plants to produce disposable protective isolation gowns by the millions in a matter of months.

The company reconfigured cutting equipment at its Atlanta, GA, Denton, TX and Middlesex, VT, facilities that had been used to format materials for aerospace applications. The conversion involved recalibrating the lines to accommodate the nonwoven surgical gown material and was completed in a matter of days.

According to market development and strategy manager, Ralph Tricomi, staffing to meet the sudden influx of huge orders for nonwoven protective isolation gowns was among Web Industries’ biggest challenges.

“Our human resources department at each plant undertook an intensive recruiting effort to attract and hire skilled operations personnel,” Tricomi says. “Overall, there was a unified, interdisciplinary effort among three plants to produce gowns necessary to help protect lives and get America back to work.”

Viewpoint: Web Industries lays out the case for contract manufacturing at a time when flexibility, speed and product innovation are necessary to achieve low costs

February 11, 2021

WILMOT, NH, Feb. 11, 2021 (Nonwovens Markets) - When the emergence of a global pandemic forced medical institutions and ordinary people to scramble to source facemasks and other personal protective equipment (PPEs), manufacturers throughout the PPE supply chain were confronted by a challenge they had never prepared for: how to scale production capacity and, in many cases, move into new product areas.

More recently, companies and governments have wrestled with a new problem: how to ensure surge capacity to make products with demand that is high initially, but which might decline quickly and not be necessary until the next emergency.

What they do for a living. For a company like Marlborough, Massachusetts-based Web Industries, this sounds like a perfect illustration of the need for a contract manufacturing organization (CMO).

Most of the time, Web Industries is not helping companies deal with global emergencies; a more typical situation is where a brand owner or original equipment manufacturer (OEM) decides it wants to launch a product or family of products or change its geographical distribution but isn't capable of doing the work internally.

Enter the contract manufacturer.

Nonwovens Markets recently spoke with a team of executives from Web Industries, who made the case that outsourced manufacturing can open new opportunities for brand owners and other customers for the right situation.

In the conversation were Ed Martins, vice president, Industrial &Consumer Division; Dante P. Ercoli, director of sales and business development, and Ken Sheets, plant manager for the division's Fort Wayne, Indiana site.

Making a big difference. The Web Industries executives pointed to a few areas where their company can make a big difference for its customers.

Most obvious is having the equipment and trained staff to quickly manufacture a new product. Others include relationships with equipment vendors and raw materials suppliers to make decisions and implement them quickly, and product design and engineering capabilities to allow for quick and cost-effective scale-up and commercialization.

A related area is their ability to take the lead in brainstorming product development ideas with customers, often extending to the supply chain to ensure that risks and opportunities are highlighted before final product manufacturing and marketing decisions are made.

Examples from PPE supply chain. While the value a contract manufacturer brings to customers was the main topic of the interview, the global drive to strengthen the PPE supply chain and onshore production provided numerous examples of how CMOs play a vital part in the rapid deployment of domestic PPE manufacturing. The executives noted that the increased demand for facemasks was unexpected both domestically and internationally when the COVID-19 virus hit. They pointed out that in many cases CMOs had the equipment and the ability to ramp up production without having to design, order, install and test new production capacity.

Trained staff already exists. They also said, "Our customers realize more value in the operational and intellectual knowledge and infrastructure we bring. So, while a CMO has the equipment needed for scaling production rapidly, they also have the trained staff prepared to operate it.”

They pointed out, a company like Web Industries also has the materials science and engineering knowledge in-house that is relevant to manufacturing the brand owner’s products.

In-house engineering. In some cases, when a new product development effort is required, the CMO will supplement the brand owner’s in-house engineering capability when it is insufficient to develop and commercialize the product. In fact, using a contract manufacturer often allows a customer to avoid the investment in a large engineering department.

Additionally, the contract manufacturer will have established relationships with equipment vendors and raw materials suppliers and be able to bring them into the development discussion.

In the words of one team member, "Many times [following] our early on conversations with customers, the product looks very different by the time it is commercialized as opposed to the initial concept. So, the CMO’s flexibility proves to be key in those situations."

Testing and certification labs. The interviewees commented that they have had jobs where the brand owner was working with multiple contract manufacturers. In that situation, a brand owner may not have the experience to bring staffs at multiple locations up to speed on technical issues. "How do you bring the knowledge level of those other [contract manufacturers] up to where they need to be in order to continue at the speed-to-market that's important?"

A contract manufacturer like Web Industries has established relationships with testing and certification laboratories, which is extremely important for speed-to-market. Without those relationships, the lead times can really slow down the process and the pace.

Risk mitigation. Another issue for a brand owner, according to the executives, is risk mitigation. When a brand owner thinks about potentially investing in the infrastructure, to bring a new product to market or enter a new sector, there is a lot to consider. And it's not just capital investment. Every aspect of an organization is in play: "You need to have the confidence you can scale at a pace that meets market demand and needs.  CMO’s are used to this and can help to mitigate this risk for a brand owner or OEM."

Simplify the task. Personal protective equipment is often meant to be a temporary project. Many companies are questioning what the addressable market will be for any one of the different products, e.g., masks, gowns and headgear post pandemic.

In a case where a customer believes an operation will be short lived, the contract manufacturer can greatly simplify the task of scaling the business and then backing out if the demand goes away.

Imports versus domestic. Another question is the role of imports versus domestic supply in the PPE supply chain. With the onshoring initiative many countries have undertaken to strengthen their domestic capability if another pandemic were to occur, using a contract manufacturer allows a PPE maker to scale fast and develop a longer-term strategy.

Even if a new business is permanent, often contract manufacturer's customers may have a corporate philosophy emphasizing large volumes and minimizing complexity in their operations. A contract manufacturer allows outsourcing of this operational complexity.

Example of velocity. Certainly, velocity is one thing many people think about when looking at contract manufacturers. The executives cited an example from their own past where speed-to-market was a key issue.

"Approximately 10 years ago, one of our major customers approached us about a pipeline process for a product that involved nonwovens that went into a toddler training pant. They had worked this out on a pilot scale and approached us because of our development capabilities, speed to market, and ability to scale their product.

"They transferred their technology and knowledge to us, and requested that we develop the production scale to meet their anticipated commercial demand. It was only three months from issuing a purchase order for equipment to running go-to-market qualification trials. Well, we've continued to run this product for 10 years, and their comments back to us [are that] they come to Web for these kinds of things because there's no way that they could have gone through their bureaucracy to scale this up and staff it and commercialize it as Web did. There's just no way. That's why they turn to Web, because they know we can get things done quickly like this."

The executives also said that speed-to-market and fast change of direction are arguments for using a domestic contract manufacturer, rather than going offshore looking for low variable costs at the expense of reduced flexibility and a longer, more rigid supply chain.

Web Industries to Expand Multi-layer Insulation (MLI) and Composite Ply Cutting Operations at Denton, Texas, Facility

July 12, 2019

Web Industries Inc., a precision formatter of advanced composites materials for aerospace, space and medical applications, is implementing a major expansion of its Denton, Texas, manufacturing facility. The expansion will increase the plant’s productive capacity, smooth the flow of manufacturing activities and help support larger customer programs.

According to Ben Winters, general manager of Web Industries’ CAD Cut Services business unit, the $1.5-million project will add 20,000 square feet of manufacturing space to the facility, nearly doubling its size, and create new multi-layer insulation (MLI) and composite ply cutting production cells.

The project will leave current production activities at Denton unaffected and is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2020.

“The completed expansion will transform Web Denton into one of the company’s Centers of Excellence, joining other Web manufacturing hubs such as Atlanta, Ga., and Montpelier, Vt.,” says Winters. “With the Denton expansion and the recent acquisition of Omega Systèmes, which has manufacturing facilities in Nantes and Bordeaux, France, Web has strengthened its position as the leading precision formatter globally for aerospace, space, medical and related applications.”

Two-Phase Project

The Denton expansion will take place in two phases. Phase one involves creation of a 10,000-square-foot production area for the cutting and assembly of MLI blankets. These are multi-layer components that provide thermal insulation in space vehicles such as satellites and rockets, and in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines used in medical applications. The new area will be equipped with computer-controlled automated cutting tables and industrial sewing machines for blanket assembly.

“We’ve seen a surge in demand for MLI thermal solutions due to the new ‘space race’ and the launch of numerous small satellites,” comments Winters. “The expanded MLI production area at Denton will help us meet both current and anticipated demand for MLI and other thermal solutions. The addition of sewing capabilities positions us to supply completely finished products ready for installation at the launch pad.”

The expansion’s second phase centers on a new composites ply cutting and kitting area, which will format materials for aerospace engines and related applications. Also slated for expansion are Denton’s administrative offices and employee training facilities. In addition, the project gives Web the space and flexibility to install more freezers in the future for the proper storage of composite materials before processing.

Web Industries to Build Seattle-area Composites Formatting Plant that will Speed Slit Tapes Delivery to Boeing

July 31, 2019

Aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEM) in the U.S. Pacific Northwest will soon have a nearby source of precision-formatted composite materials from Web Industries Inc. The company has unveiled plans for a new plant near Seattle that will help aerospace manufacturers, including Boeing, to optimize supply chains and dramatically cut shipping time and inventory.

Situated on 12 acres in Marysville, Wash., the new production facility will supply composite slit tape for the Boeing 777X and position Web to provide responsive formatting services to other businesses in the region.

The plant is expected to be operational following construction, equipment qualification and employee training. It is located close to Boeing’s final assembly plant in Everett, Wash., and supplier Toray Composite Materials America’s (CMA) processing facility in Tacoma, Wash.

“Our new composites formatting facility is the realization of our commercial commitment to Toray and Boeing,” says Web Industries President and CEO Mark Pihl. “By providing localized manufacturing to support the 777X, Boeing and Toray are expected to see improved affordability and sustainable competitive advantages. There are benefits associated with lower transportation, packaging and inventory costs, as well as reduced lead times. We look forward to the innovation and continuous improvement focus that will come with close collaboration.”

The new plant will reduce freight transportation time between Web and Boeing facilities to less than 30 minutes and to roughly two hours between Web and Toray. The materials currently make a cross-country journey by freezer truck.

Boeing could realize additional benefits via inventory savings. Web now ships formatted tapes to Boeing twice per month. When the new plant is operational, smaller shipments will be delivered as often as twice per day, which will require less handling and storage at Boeing. The expectation is to achieve a just in time service model.

Toray, too, will enjoy advantages associated with Web’s new nearby location. “Web has been a long-standing partner of Toray and enabled us to expand our product portfolio of advanced materials with great results, says Don Myers, director of aerospace sales, Toray CMA. “We look forward to continuing our work with Web Industries as they start up their facility in Marysville.”

The manufacturing site, which will house:

  • 75,000 square feet for Web’s custom-built precision slitting, winding and spooling operations;
  • Space to add product development and composite material ply cutting and kitting services.

“Web will profit by adding value to our existing products and services and gaining entrée to new business opportunities with aerospace manufacturing companies throughout the Northwest region,” says Pihl. “With our technical resources based locally, we will offer the ability to collaborate on new business development and help our customers enable their own growth strategies.”

“Our variance-in-repeat capability is an outgrowth of Web’s ingenuity and determination to enhance our customers’ product offering,” says Business Development Manager Courtney Robinson.

Production efficiency

Variance-in-repeat printing streamlines manufacturers’ production by incorporating multiple different repeating designs on a single roll of nonwoven material. The printed roll can run on one personal care product manufacturing line, offering variety and simplicity.

With conventional nonwoven material printing and formatting services, product manufacturers seeking variations in design need to order several different rolls, each carrying a repetitive and uniform design, process the rolls on separate lines and then collate them.

Supporting a major manufacturer

“We recently brought our print engineering services into play to craft a design solution for a personal care product manufacturing customer,” Robinson says.

“The company turned to Web Industries for help in producing a more attractive feminine undergarment’s waistband. Web succeeded in printing three slightly different repeating designs on a single roll of extensible nonwoven material.”

Robinson adds that the variance-in-repeat capability enabled the manufacturer to package the three designs on the same production line. This eliminated the need to use three different lines and then later sort the designs. The result was greater manufacturing efficiency and a more appealing garment for consumers.

Web Industries Opens European Center of Excellence for Aerospace composites development & commercialization

March 03, 2020

Web Industries Inc., a precision formatter of composite materials, announced today that it has opened a European Center of Excellence for Composite Development & Commercialization (CoE) at Omega Systèmes in Nantes, France.

The new CoE offers the European market access to technical teams, a material analysis lab and pilot lines for demonstration, rapid development, testing and qualification of different composite material formats, including thermosets, thermoplastics and other composite types. The facility has high-volume composite formatting lines to transition new materials and processes to commercial-scale production. In addition to speeding new product development, the CoE can help customers devise strategies to enhance productivity and reduce costs for mature product programs.

“With this investment we offer our customers the customized support of a strategic outsourcing partner to accelerate the development of new aircraft programs and meet the market’s fast-growing needs for formatted composite materials,” said Jean-Louis Bretin, general manager, Omega Systèmes.

Web Industries acquired Omega Systèmes in January 2019 and has been investing in Omega’s France-based team, technologies and manufacturing capabilities. The Nantes CoE will collaborate with Web’s North American CoEs for composites automation and thermoplastic composite development. With its location in the west of France, the new CoE is in proximity to aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their tiered suppliers throughout the United Kingdom and European Union. The CoE also is an active collaborator and member of many European research institutes, such as the National Composites Centre, Thermoplastic Composites Research Center, Technical University of Dresden and Technical University of Munich.

“These collaborations enable Web to be at the forefront of many innovations and trends and provide us with pathways to help our customers integrate R&D with commercialization,” said Grand Hou, director of research and technology, Web Industries. “By working collaboratively with customers early, we can drastically reduce timelines to commercialization and often reduce their cost structure through early process optimization.”

Web Industries, Inc. COVID-19 Statement

March 05, 2020

Dear Valued Partners,

The Web Industries Leadership Team would like to provide the following update to our response to the ongoing COVID-19 health emergency and its potential adverse impact on supply chain continuity:

Our People

The health and safety of our employees, customers, and suppliers remains a top priority, and we are closely tracking the status of the outbreak. As the number of reported cases escalates, we are taking the following additional preventative measures:

  • Our locations are complying with all government requirements covering all manufacturing facilities and offices.
  • We are implementing site entry restrictions and staggered staffing schedules to prevent the potential spread of the disease into our facilities.
  • We have implemented an international travel ban and are significantly limiting our domestic travel.
  • We are disinfecting all common surfaces in our facilities more frequently and making hand sanitizers available at all locations.
Our Partners

Web Industries is committed to remaining proactive and transparent, and we will do everything possible to anticipate future challenges that may affect the supply chain. We are receiving regular status reports from our suppliers, and while everything we have heard so far has been favorable, we will continue to monitor the situation. If there are any indications that our supply chain has been impacted, we will proactively inform our customers.

Web Industries Introduces Functional Ink Printing Capability

March 09, 2020

A new functional ink printing capability for communicating changes in a garment’s or material’s condition is now available from the Personal & Home Care business unit of Web Industries Inc., a precision formatter of flexible materials. The capability enables two- or three-part ink chemistries to be printed on nonwovens, paper, tissue, films, or textiles to signal a change in material condition. It is designed for personal care items including incontinence wear, diapers and feminine hygiene products, but also has potential uses in industrial applications.

Functional ink refers to printed coatings that register a change when exposed to reagents such as moisture. The change could involve fading or becoming a different color, releasing a telltale odor or triggering an increase or decrease in temperature. Web Industries’ Fort Wayne, Ind., printing facility can apply functional ink coatings to a variety of materials on behalf of manufacturing customers.

“Functional ink is all about providing information to product users,” says Business Development Manager Courtney Robinson. “Garments or materials printed with functional ink indicate changes and can prompt corrective actions. Personal care product manufacturers, for example, can employ functional inks to indicate the status of incontinence wear, where the ink will fade or alter color when exposed to moisture, alerting caregivers to change the garment.”

Industrial Applications

Functional ink coatings also have a wide range of industrial uses. “The ability to build chemical or bio-reactive markers directly into personal protective equipment or other product components can provide an added level of awareness and safety for first responders and other users,” Robinson notes. “For instance, a tailored coating could be applied to specific areas of single-use hazmat suits that would change color to indicate the presence of specific levels of a contaminant. By providing passive monitoring during an emergency situation, these ‘sensing areas’ would allow the wearer to focus on their specific task while knowing that their exposure to harmful chemicals or bio-agents was being assessed.

“Another high-potential use is in industrial control systems,” Robinson said. “For instance, an electrically-conductive functional coating could be applied to a substrate that breaks down in the presence of excessive heat. Used as a sensor component, an overheating condition would cause the material to degrade, breaking the electrical connection and signaling the equipment’s PLC/computer.”

And we are utilizing heightened cleaning protocols at all of our facilities with mandated cleaning & disinfecting intervals, processes and locations. Rest assured, we are fully defining our human and operational risks and will be putting in place several continuity measures.

We are constantly assessing the health of our supply chain and have executed mitigation strategies for any materials or products defined as “at risk”. To date, we have not seen any disruption of material continuity related to the COVID-19 crisis. We continue to work with our suppliers and partners to define any potential disruptions as the situation develops further.

Currently, all of our locations are operating with full staff and on normal schedules. We are analyzing all operations and defining minimum requirements at each site to continue manufacturing if the crisis deepens.

This situation is fluid and developing on an hourly basis. If there are any significant changes in our status due to new local or federal mandates, resource availability, supply chain disruption, or other unforeseen factors, we will provide you with an immediate update.

Best Regards,
David Pippa
Global Director of Supply Chain
