Reinforcement fabrics manufacturer Vectorply Corp. (Phenix City, Ala., USA) announced on Feb. 11 the expansion of its advanced product manufacturing capabilities with the installation of a new Liba Maschinenfabrik GmbH (Naila, Germany) Max 5 knitting machine. The state-of-the-art Liba Max 5 is said to be the first machine of its type in North America and will expand Vectorply’s domestic capacity for manufacturing multiaxial, spread-tow carbon fiber reinforcements.

The installation of the Liba Max 5 is Vectorply’s most recent addition to its already broad range of carbon multiaxial fabric capabilities. The new machine has the capability to make some of the lightest weight noncrimp carbon fiber fabrics in the world. The investment was made to support Vectorply’s growing domestic customer base using carbon fiber multiaxial fabrics.
