Resin Systems Inc. a composite material products technology company, has completed installation of automated filament winding equipment, capable of supporting commercial production demand for its RStandard composite products.
the company state that Initial trial runs of the filament winding equipment have confirmed production throughput rates of 1,000 kilograms or 2,200 lbs.) of composite material per hour.
With the installation of the filament winding equipment completed, the Company is proceeding with final computer integration of all production steps for each individual mandrel.
This production cell is the first of the two initial production cells being installed this year. The order for the second cell has been placed, engineering is underway and delivery is scheduled for the end of Q4 2005. At that time, the Calgary production facility will be capable of producing 10,000 metric tonnes of RStandard composite utility structures of all sizes including heights up to 60 meters (or 192 ft.).
""When integration is completed and the Calgary facility is officially opened, it will be one of the largest capacity composite material facilities in the world,"" said Greg Pendura, president and chief executive officer, Resin Systems Inc. ""When the facility is in full production, it has the ability to produce in excess of U.S. $56 million in composite material product revenues annually.""
In addition to the above activities, the facility's fully automated storage, mixing, blending and pumping systems for Version resin have been fully installed, commissioned and field tested.
