Metyx Composites has created what they describe as a comprehensive, new Tooling Centre.
The centre is scheduled to open in January 2012 and is designed to serve all Metyx Composites customers worldwide as a value added service.
According to the Metyx, their Tooling Centre incorporates a 5 Axis CNC machine for large scale plug and mould production which they say has a 4 meter Z axis and a 6.2 meter Y axis, making it one of the largest CNC machines in the region for the composites industry. This machine is capable of running moulds and plugs for the automotive, wind energy, and marine industries, among others.
“We are thrilled to deliver another significant value added service to our customers,” commented Ugur Ustunel, VP New Business Development, Metyx Composites. “Since the launch of our closed mould product range, Metycore, we noticed the industry needed a reliable, low cost tooling shop that could respond to customers’ tooling challenges – rapidly and effectively. This market driven approach triggered our investment decision. Our solution allows customers to continue focusing on their core business while maximizing their return on investment,” explained Ustunel.
The Tooling Centre is just one part of Metyx Composites’ new business unit. “This new business unit will round out our portfolio of offerings. We are excited to be supporting innovation across sectors with this new endeavour, and we look forward to sharing details about it at JEC 2012,” concluded Ustunel.
ZSK will hold its bi-annual technology showcase on 21-22 September 2018 at its Krefeld, Germany, headquarters. The Embroidery Technology Show assembles more than 25 exhibitors from around the world to discuss emerging trends in the embroidery manufacturing industry and demonstrate the latest products produced using techniques such as tailored fibre placement (TFP) or smart textiles.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
