At Advanced Engineering 2018, MSA Manufacturing is promoting its extensive CNC cutting, slitting, 2D preforming and sequenced kitting capabilities for a wide range of glass and carbon fabrics, along with 3- and 5-axis CNC machining and kitting of cores for manufacturing composite parts.

MSA also waterjet cuts and kits metal, honeycomb and phenolic sheet, plus other composite materials, such E-glass, carbon and ballistic plate.

In-house production facilities enable MSA to supply a wide range of machined, cut and shaped parts. Prepregs and reinforcement fabrics up to 2.5 m wide can be cut to size, with roll slitting to provide tapes in custom widths down to 25 mm. Waterjet cutting machines can handle composite plates and other sheet materials up to 100 mm x 4 x 3 m, with CNC milling up to 2.44 x 1.22 m.

MSA is ISO 9001/14001 and JOSCAR accredited, supplying leading OEMs and Tier 1/2 manufacturers of hi-tech composite components and finished products for the marine, renewable energy, defence and aerospace industries. Small and large scale material parts are produced for moulding components as small as brackets for a composite bicycle frame up to complete kits for infusing structural sections in the hulls and decks of luxury superyachts and renewable energy blades.

The MSA team finds clever ways to provide time and cost saving material solutions without compromising on build quality, reducing lead times and improving productivity, as well as minimising scrap, waste disposal and administration costs. Services offered go beyond cutting and supplying accurate, high quality kit parts. Additional customer benefits include: 3D scanning, reverse engineering; surface flattening; managing material stocks for reliable delivery; organising kits to meet customer needs.

CEO Max Osmond comments, “We are looking forward to another good Advanced Engineering show, which is a key event for us to meet with both existing and new customers over the two days and promote our latest service capabilities.”  

MSA will exhibit on Stand N107 at Advanced Engineering 2018 on 31 October-1 November in Birmingham, UK.
