Composites technology specialist and custom machine builder Cygnet Texkimp will showcase its full-life-cycle of fibre handling and converting solutions at the CAMX Composites and Advanced Materials Expo in Atlanta, October 30-November 2, 2023.
The company will feature its complete range of creels, filament winding, automation and handling, and recycling technologies for the composites industry, with a special focus on its web converting solutions, which include prepreg processing, coating, filming, laminating and slitting equipment.
“CAMX gives us an excellent platform to share our expertise with the North American market, and this year we’re putting a spotlight on our web converting capability,” explains Graeme Jones, Cygnet Texkimp’s Web Converting Product Director.
“We’ll be highlighting how we use our extensive fibre handling expertise to develop machines that get the very best from the fibre in order to produce extremely high-precision, lightweight composite materials and parts consistently and efficiently for all sectors from aerospace and automotive to energy and industrial.”
Among its technologies, visitors will have the opportunity to find out about the company’s Multi Roll Stack prepreg and towpreg processing machine which has been shortlisted for a CAMX Award. The short-footprint, energy-efficient machine delivers significant savings in terms of capital investment, running costs and energy requirements when compared to conventional prepreg processing and has been shown to achieve high accuracy, low coat weight materials at market-leading rates.
Show delegates can also discover more about Cygnet Texkimp’s high-precision Slitter Spooler Rewinder, which is being used in the aerospace and automotive industries, to slit and wind carbon fibre prepregs into high-accuracy tapes. The technology draws on Cygnet Texkimp’s experience in handling complex technical fibres to deliver slit tapes consistently and reliably with very minimal fraying, stringers, debris or scrappage and extremely high levels of precision.
Cygnet Texkimp will be exhibiting in Building C, Level 1, K9 and in the Awards Pavilion
