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.

  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • A critical market sector: Downhole composites in oil and gas

    Tremendous secrecy and non-disclosure has kept this profitable composites application out of the spotlight, while it has enabled the current shale oil energy boom.

  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.
