Composite Integration Ltd has been created as a new company, based in Saltash near Plymouth, UK, whose focus is to help customer succeed in closed mould processing.
Composite Integration has been established to practically assist customers throughout the closed-mould process, covering areas such as product design optimisation, materials selection, tooling design, tooling manufacture (composite and metal), equipment selection, installation, monitoring, process control and training. The need for high quality and practical training is recognised, and the company is able to provide both on-site and in house training to suit the individual client.
It is of course important to ensure that all elements in the production process work well together and hence the emphasis on ‘Integration’. Their current projects include, designing and building RTM tooling, manufacturing of prototype components and materials selection including laminate testing for impact resistance. The company is also undertaking a number of development projects including work with new tooling methods and materials, specifically aimed at optimising the construction of composite RTM tooling.
The company has two directors. Stephen Leonard-Williams and Richard Bland, each having a long history of working in the design, development and construction of resin injection machinery, process automation and monitoring.
Cobra International has started mass production of the new Windsurfer LT board.
