Hall Composites (Bristol, Rhode Island) is emphasizing its aerospace composites manufacturing services. Hall Composites' ISO 9001-certified U.S. location occupies a 90,000-ft2 production facility for the manufacture of high-performance advanced composite components. A separate 12,500-ft2 building is also available for confidential projects. Hall Composites also has production facilities in Breskens, The Netherlands, and Auckland, New Zealand. Manufacturing processes include vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM), infusion and autoclave- and oven-cured carbon fiber prepregs. Custom tooling and mold manufacturing as well as stock/custom male mandrel lamination are specialties. Since 1990, Hall has pioneered the construction of large, high-performance, seamless, male-molded, autoclave-cured tubes. With a 151-ft autoclave, Hall can cure one-piece structures up to 150 ft long.
