11 February 2008

A new LIBA Copcentra MAX 5 Universal machine (MAX 5U), the very first of its kind worldwide, is being installed at the Sigmatex facility in Runcorn, England.

The Copcentra MAX 5U is the latest technology to be offered from LIBA Maschinenfabrik GmbH of Germany, which Sigmatex says offers advanced fibre spreading techniques, increased speed of fibre deposition, adjustable laying heads for the angles and above all has the capability to manufacture fabrics at variable widths.

Mr Scott Murray, Sigmatex Technical Manager commented, “the investment in this cutting edge technology continues to place Sigmatex at the forefront of innovation within the carbon fibre textile manufacturing market and will help provide its current and future customer base with increased production capacities, wider product offerings and cost effective solutions from the world’s largest independent converter of carbon fibre”.
