Established in 1966 Century Design Inc (CDI) has extensive Prepreg and Tubular Structures processing experience together with proven, reliable, quality machines. CDI give company's a competitive edge in todays rapidly changing composites market,
Century Design Inc. (CDI) is backed by CDI’s fifty-eight years of experience in the composite equipment market including extensive Prepreg processing and tubular structure processing experience. The result is complete composite processing equipment that has the reliability, high quality and proven performance of CDI’s designs along with the process control, efficiency and experience to make this a minimal risk, high return investment for our customers.
CDI machines are built on accuracy, reliability and low cost of operations. CDI’s open architecture and full variable control design insures that the machines are easy to setup and operate for the initial products but are also adjustable to accommodate new products in the future. This full flexibility approach is encompassed in the open source software that is used for programming the machines as well as the fact that there are no ongoing licenses or proprietary products that lock the customer to a long term financial commitment just to operate the machines.
Machine control is via an intuitive HMI touchscreen that monitors and controls the machines and can be used to save recipes for operators to call up which set all machine parameters and insure consistency from batch to batch with the focus on process repeatability and low operator training requirements resulting in higher part through put with lower cost of operations. By focusing only on the composites industry, having years of processing/production experience with composites and designing our machines from an end user’s perspective, we are able to provide the best value added composite processing machines for our customers. We are also able to modify any of our machines to better fit many of the customer unique requirements.
The focus on the machines, features and processing capabilities is only half of what is required to have an efficient, repeatable, production line for high quality composite material or part processing. CDI offer a full process support program called TIP, Total Integration Program, which is the “software to the machine hardware and is a fully comprehensive Process and operations support program designed to support the operation of the Prepreg and Tubular Structures lines with material sources and specifications, procedure, processes, training and on-site implementation for the manufacturing of advanced composite materials. TIP is designed to run parallel to the machine build process to ensure that the new machine customers have the materials, procedure, processes and training in place prior to the machine installation which insures that the customer is able to produce material or parts to their specifications within 1 week of machine installation, improving ROI as well as reducing the risks associated with implementing new machines and processes. Primarily focused around Prepreg manufacturing operations and related downstream activities, TIP TM reliably delivers class-leading, global composite material manufacturing operations and products.
