The British Textile Machinery Association (BTMA) is the gateway to the UK’s textile manufacturing resources and expertise for composites manufacture.

Many manufacturers of composites are not aware that most of the processes involved in producing woven, nonwoven or knitted textiles for use in composite components were developed in the UK, and in association with BTMA member companies, it says. Therefore, many BTMA member companies can or already produce machinery to produce advanced fibres, yarns and fabrics, including coating, laminating and autoclaves necessary for the production of composite components. The important area of testing equipment for fibres, yarns and fabrics is also covered by BTMA member companies and it is all manufactured in the UK.

BTMA member companies have a reputation for innovation and inspired problem solving in order to improve product performance, manufacturing efficiencies, or production processes. Their know-how based on decades of involvement in the textile industry could significantly speed up the R&D process and reduce costs dramatically.

Many of the processes involved in producing advanced fibres, yarns and fabrics whether woven, nonwoven, knitted or braided for use in the production of composite components are based on traditional methods of textile production. However most composite production technologies have developed far in advance of those traditionally associated with conventional textiles. Many of these advancements and innovative technologies have emerged and continue to emerge from member companies of the BTMA.

The BTMA promotes the advantages of UK companies to improve quality, productivity and materials performance at a cost-effective level through the application of advanced textile manufacturing technologies.

BTMA will exhibit on Stand L160 at Advanced Engineering 2017 on 1-2 November in Birmingham, UK.
