Composite Resources has acquired several new technologies to support its composite product development demands allowing them to increase precision work.

They have invested in coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM), used for precision measurements, as they are critical for product inspection as well as reverse engineering. They have acquired a FaroArm Platinum, 8ft, 7-axis measuring arm with integrated Laser Line Scanner which uses FARO’s CAM 2 Q software for ball probe measurements and GEO Magic Studio & Qualify with the Laser Scanner for measuring complex geometry and for Reverse Engineering work. They have also acquired a ZEISS Contura G2 AKTIV 700/1000/600 CMM which uses ZEISS’s Calypso software and Variable Accuracy and Speed Technology (VAST) scanning probes for accurate measuring.

“Our clients are asking for tremendous precision in the products we manufacture”, said Kevin Bialas, Composite Resources Composite Engineering and Product Development Manager. “Whether it is aerospace, motorsports, medical or industrial use, customers have come to expect rigid specifications and you need to invest in these types of tools to maximise that precision”.

Composite Resources have also added an ASC Process Systems Autoclave utilising ASC’s Composite Processing Control (CPC) Software for high pressure curing of composite laminates, which allows control of more than one autoclave from a single PC, an Onsrud 5- Axis CNC machine capable of producing large scale, detailed prototypes, moulds or production parts, a second Engel e-motion 110 Injection Moulding Machine all to improve their technology for precision injection moulding and several technologies for precision machining made by Haas Automation.

“While there are more and more carbon fibre fabrication shops opening around the globe, there are still very few that can do the precision design, prototype and manufacture that we offer”, said Lisa Bennett, Composite Resources Vice President and Operations Director. “These investments are part of what differentiates us from most other composite shops”.
