Century Design Inc. (CDI, San Diego, Calif.) has developed a small production prepreg machine targeted for small- to medium-sized producers. Its features include automated controls that incorporate processing recipes; a plug-and-play design that requires no facility changes to install or operate; and an optional ply consolidator that enables the production of prepreg widths up to 1,000 mm/39.4 inches. The system benefits reportedly include a reduction in material costs of up to 40 percent. Also new is TIP (Total Integration Program), a program that delivers the design, technology, processes and implementation for advanced composite material manufacturing facilities. Primarily focused on prepreg manufacturing operations and related downstream activities, TIP is intended to ensure that users of CDI prepreg technologies are fully capable and self-sufficient in the implementation of new machinery.
