Kit Concepts, a service providing composites manufacturers with pre-packaged fiberglass material cut to size and nested in the order needed, has been launched by Composites One.

“We developed the program to help composites manufacturers bypass the time-consuming and error-filled task of manually cutting and loading fiberglass material,” said Tom Hunter, Kit Concepts Production Manager. Each kit contains fiberglass material that is cut exactly to the customer’s patterns and CAD drawings. Cut material is then packed together in a single kit, and then placed in the order that they are used in the manufacturing process.

Since the program’s initial introduction, a growing number of composites manufacturers in a variety of industries are using Kit Concepts for applications ranging from boat hulls to automotive parts to manhole covers. The pre-cut fiberglass material is suitable for customers using closed mold processes such as RTM (resin transfer molding) and vacuum infusion, as well as those using open mold processes.

“Kit Concepts is a time and labor-saving alternative to manual cutting,” said Hunter. “You can reduce cutting and loading time in half!” he added.
