Chomarat has invested in a new carbon multiaxial machine to bolster its development strategy, particularly in the aerospace and automotive sectors.
“This cutting edge equipment takes the industrialisation of high performance reinforcements to the next level,” claims Michel Cognet, Managing Director at Chomarat. “This new multiaxial machine is ten times more productive than the previous generation of machines. The advantages for customers? Competitive high performance carbon reinforcements.”
“The idea is to rise to the challenges of mass production in the automotive, aerospace, industrial and sports and leisure sectors,” continues Philippe Sanial, R&T Manager at Chomarat. “We will be able to produce multiaxial carbon reinforcements (non-crimp fabrics or NCF) using veils or an on-line powder coating.”
It will be possible to produce C-PLY, the company’s range of high performance carbon multiaxials, in different widths and in large volume, for constructions that are isotropic or more specific with angles from 22.5° to 90° and thin plies.
This equipment is part of a three-year €35 million investment plan to accelerate innovation and upgrade Chomarat’s French sites.
“With this new carbon multiaxial, we are boosting our competitive power in France and abroad to meet the needs and requirements of our markets and customers, and also pursuing our innovation strategy,” concludes Cognet.
