The Use of Composite Materials as an Alternative to
Traditional Thermoforming or Vacuum Forming Molds.
Alfonso Cuellar - AIC International, Corona, CA
The use of composite tooling will be explored as an alternative to traditional metal tooling. High temperature applications will be discussed with an emphasis on high temperature tooling, thermoforming and vacuum forming.
Alfonso Cuellar has an industral engineering degree from the Universidad Catolica de Occidente El Salvador. His experience includes over 13 years in the Composite Industry where he has held positions in production, purchasing, planning, operations at Bristol Fiberlite in Santa Ana, CA. Alfonso is presently a Technical Sales Representative for AIC International and has dealt with composites, thermoforming and vacuum forming manufacturing processes and composite tooling for thermoforming applications.

Fingerhut, Sol M.
December 16, 1922 - December 23, 2009
Sol M. Fingerhut (Sonny) was an innovator and pioneer in the composites industry. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio and received his BS in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering from the Case School of Applied Science (now Case Western Reserve) in 1944. As a young engineer, he developed innovations in fiberglass for an aircraft wing in WWII, an amphibious sea plane, worked in the research labs of Owens-Corning, and invented the fiberglass preform process. He moved to California in 1949 where he developed the process to make molded fiberglass chairs in collaboration with Charles Eames. Sol co-founded Century Plasics in 1966 where he developed innovative composite fiberglass products for the aerospace, wind energy, medical equipment and Homeland Security markets. At the age of 79, Sol invented the lightweight blast resistant cargo container known as the Hardened Unit Load Device (HULD) for commercial aircraft. Sol will be remembered for his courage, wisdom, creativity, integrity, kindness and his generosity to family, friends and employees.
He is survived by Muriel Wels Fingerhut, his wife for 61 years, his children Ellen Fingerhut Whittier and Rick Fingerhut, and his grand-children Daniel and Dina Fingerhut. A scholarship fund will be established at the Case School of Engineering in his honor.
