Cygnet Texkimp (Cheshire, U.K.) is highlighting its prepreg machinery and associated fiber processing technologies for the aerospace, automotive, industrial and energy industries.
The company will emphasize the reliability and speed of its prepreg technologies, which it attributes to four decades of engineering expertise and product development. Its prepreg machines have been engineered to perform with high levels of consistency and output, to deliver prepreg materials of optimum quality, weight and thickness.
The company will also feature its range of associated technologies including fiber unwinding creels, spreading, coating and laminating machines. These range from a high-tolerance, reverse-roll coating machine capable of creating low coat weight films of less than 5 gsm for the aerospace-quality prepreg market, to a high-volume, self-calibrating Flatline creel with patented tensioning mechanism.
Approaching rollout and first flight, the 787 relies on innovations in composite materials and processes to hit its targets
Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) replacing coated steel in more reinforced-concrete applications.
Yes, advanced forms are in development, but has the technology progressed enough to make the business case?
