Goetz Custom Boats have started construction of their new 43,000-sq/ft facility.
The facility is just a ½-mile from their existing location of 30+ years. Surveyors are almost finished and groundbreaking crews will commence next week, completion is scheduled for June 2007.
Goetz say that their new state-of-the-art boat shop will utilize green engineering to be energy efficient in every practical way to achieve the latest cutting edge composite construction technology. Facilities will include a large 6-axis CNC milling centre with a working envelope of 75’ x 25’ x 12’, all new computer controlled ovens & spray booths plus several highly laser projection centres to ensure accurate lamination & assembly of products. The building will also contain new management, sales and engineering suites.
Cobra International will showcase a range of composite products at CAMX 2018, including carbon fibre components for the automotive, transportation, marine, water sports and luxury sectors.
UK company Prodrive Composites has developed a process for manufacturing recyclable composite components that can satisfy future end-of-life requirements without any compromise in the performance of the original parts. The company says the P2T (Primary to Tertiary) process not only simplifies recycling, but endows a composite material with the potential to fulfil three or more useful lifetimes.
Designers at Elemental Motor have utilised tailored fibre placement (TPF) to extend the use of carbon composites in its RP1 sports car.
