Workholding composite hand clamps are constructed of reinforced polymers that combine high strength and light weight. The clamps are fabricated of an electrically non-conductive glass-reinforced nylon and are highly resistant to most acids, gases, chemicals, and elevated temperatures. They are for applications ranging from corrosive industrial environments to use in home workshops.

The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
