On-Demand Materials Manufacturing for Composite Parts Makers

  • Low-cost in-house and on-demand Prepreg manufacturing capabilities for small and mid-market composite part makers
  • R&D and production opportunities for creating proprietary composite materials that are lower in cost and immediately available
  • Increased control of composite material supply lines and production lead times

On-Demand Towpreg Opportunities for Materials Manufacturers

When compared to in-house filament winding:

  • Higher resin quality control (1% to 2% consistency vs. 10%)
  • 300% faster winding speed for increased output rate
  • Stronger supply chain control
  • Lower scrap rate (2% vs.10%)
  • 25% to 30% weight reduction
  • A wider range of product and manufacturing opportunities
