Metyx Composites has invested in a new MAX 5 carbon reinforcement production line as part of a series of investments they have planned for 2012 at the company’s headquarters in Istanbul and at its new Manisa, Turkey facility.
“The MAX 5 platform will enable us to manufacture even lighter weight carbon reinforcements and several other types of reinforcements by spreading high K carbon tows with great precision. It will also complete our offerings in the carbon reinforcements product group, a highly successful group for our customers and our company alike,” commented Tunc S. Ustunel, Sales and Marketing Director, Metyx Composites.
Along with the MAX 5 platform, METYX Composites say they also invested in a new Carbon UD tape production line and a MAX 3 type multiaxial stitched fabric production line. They say they are entering 2012 with a strong sales forecast for these products, and these investments are expected to significantly increase the their current production capacity for carbon reinforcements.
“These carbon investments were partly initiated to support requirements from the wind energy and automotive industries, in addition to prepreg producers. Our new production lines will be up and running in February 2012,” stated Ustunel. “We are excited about the opportunities these new carbon reinforcement lines will bring. We look forward to the innovative projects ahead and to serving our elite customer base with the best quality, value, and advancements in the industry.”
