Director of Process Development Andy Whitham will be speaking on the last day of JEC World in Paris, that runs from 3rd – 5th May 2022. The presentation, which starts at 09:30 CET, will discuss delivery of speeds and volume in the manufacture of filament wound composite parts.

Pioneering development work in high-speed, high-volume filament winding, Cygnet Texkimp will be exhibiting live demonstrations of its filament winder technologies on Wednesday 4th May in Hall 5, Stand M72 at 11:00 CET.

Andy’s presentation will utilise industry case studies to complement the demonstration in showcasing the winder’s benefits for winding complex shapes quickly in a turnkey manufacturing cell. The experience will showcase how Cygnet Texkimp is supporting future demand of high-volume composites for automotive and aerospace markets, including the production of hydrogen storage tanks.

“This year at JEC, the discussion of manufacturing speeds for composite components will be at the core of automation and repeatability subjects,” said Andy, on the lead-up to the Paris conference. “In the current climate, a there is an increasing demand for products to be made locally at high-volume. Our line of filament winders is enabling our customers to meet this challenge as we lead the way for UK exports in fibre handling and converting technology.”

Along with automotive and aerospace, the presentation at JEC World will further Cygnet Texkimp’s commitment to maritime transportation and shipbuilding sectors, as well as prosthetics for medical, vehicle and infrastructure for railway, and renewable energy.

The Composites Exchange programme is dedicated to leading workshops for products, solutions, and business cases. Andy’s talk discussing filament winding will join a host of presentations exploring the manufacture of composites, including additive production, epoxy technology, thermoplastic and thermosetting innovations, and machine learning with artificial intelligence.
