We pride ourselves in being at the forefront of technology and innovations in the composite design and manufacturing realm. Our layup, curing and trimming processes yield the best quality while remaining efficient and effective in a fast-paced, high-variant production environment.
Thermoset Resin system
The thermoset resin layup process uses either phenolic or epoxy prepregs. The parts are constructed as monolithic or sandwiched parts of which the sandwich parts have honeycomb or foam cores. This ensures the best strength-to-weight ratio, optimal for aircraft interior structures.
Thermoplastic Resin system
In the thermoplastic process, an organo sheet with a thermoplastic matrix is heated and moulded into the desired shape. Complex shapes can be formed allowing for more intricate part designs. One of the biggest benefits of the thermoplastic resin system is that a product can be heated and reshaped multiple times. The final product has a high chemical resistance and has multiple finishing options.
The moulded composite part is subjected to a maximum of 6 bar of pressure and typically around 130 degrees Celsius.
The moulded composite part is subjected to up to 0.8 bar of pressure and typically around 130 degrees Celsius.
Hot Press Process
The moulded composite part is closed between two hot plates that provide both heat and pressure.
We offer customer ready, trimmed, assembled and finished parts.
We have a sophisticated, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility on site, allowing us to do all our projects in-house. With this advantage our projects are run efficiently and systematically, ultimately reducing our customer’s time to market.
