Research & Academia
Through its research and development group, Cygnet Texkimp invests in innovation to remain at the cutting-edge of the fibre and fabric processing industries. We continue to develop and deliver the most effective and efficient technologies in the market.
As a provider of bespoke processing solutions for fibre, fabrics, tapes and wires, we maintain our ability to be flexible and responsive to the changing needs of our customers. Our flexibility is an asset that allows our customers to benefit from and develop new methods and emerging technologies.
With a priority on innovation, we strive, in partnership with our clients, to be the best in our fields. We closely work with the research and development teams at customer companies as well as universities and professional bodies to achieve common goals (e.g. The University of Manchester and the North West Composites Sector).
The tenet underlying virtually all of our research and development partnerships is that our client’s processes remain their unique intellectual property. The innovations developed through the research and development benefit both parties, becoming part of Cygnet Texkimp’s machine design intellectual property and enhancing the client’s process through Cygnet Texkimp equipment. Other partnership agreements are negotiated on a case by case basis.
The execution of emerging technology projects is professionally handled, utilising project management toolsets, through our research and development team. Combining innovation with project discipline, we are ideally positioned to fulfil special projects for applications that require unique machinery. The success of emerging technology projects is not only measured through achieving performance parameters, but also by minimising risk, and meeting cost and schedule targets.
Ongoing special projects for the development of bespoke machinery uniquely combining techniques of:
- Thermal Treating
- Cutting and Splicing
- Roll to Roll Processing
