The carbon fiber prepreg can be cured at 150ºC for 10 minutes, is suitable for structural parts requiring Tg within 120-140ºC and can be stored for up to 18 months at -18ºC
The ST2 system, tested with pitch carbon fiber and alumina fiber, enables high-speed wet, dry and towpreg winding.
An evolving landscape of automation, sensors and AI software is not an end, but a means to achieve the cost, quality, efficiency and agility required for future manufacturing.

Ideal for winding pressure vessels, the Fusion filament winder is a compact, adaptable design.
Unlike automotive driveshafts, automotive output shafts cannot leverage shaft length as a factor when making the case for composites. Instead, other beneficial features have made a composite output shaft able to compete with metal shafts, especially in electric vehicles.
