Composite Resources Re-invests In New Technologies

Composite Resources, a global leader in the design, prototype development and manufacture of advanced composite products announced today that the company has acquired new technologies to support their expanding composite product development demands.

The new technology increases the precision work that has become Composite Resources’ trademark.  Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM) are used for precision measurements and are critical for product inspection as well as reverse engineering.  Composite Resources acquired a FaroArm Platinum, 8ft, 7-axis measuring arm with integrated Laser Line Scanner. It 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 as seen on “Jay Leno’s Garage” on YouTube.

Composite Resources has also acquired a ZEISS Contura G2 AKTIV 700/1000/600 CMM. It uses ZEISS's Calypso software and Variable Accuracy and Speed Technology (VAST) scanning probes for highly accurate measuring.

“Our clients are asking for tremendous precision in the products we manufacture”, said Kevin Bialas, Composite Engineering and Product Development Manager for Composite Resources.  “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 maximize that precision”.

In addition to the CMM technology Composite Resources also added an ASC Process Systems Autoclave utilizing ASC's industry leading Composite Processing Control (CPC) Software for high pressure curing of composite laminates, which allows control of more than one autoclave from a single PC.

Over the past twelve months, Composite Resources has also acquired a C.R. Onsrud 5-Axis CNC machine capable of producing large scale, detailed prototypes, molds or production parts, a second Engel e-motion 110 Injection Molding Machine was added in addition to the one installed in 2009 giving Composite Resources some of the most advanced technology for precision injection molding.

Composite Resources also added several technologies for precision machining made by Haas Automation, Inc.:

Haas SL30 Turning Center Lathe
Haas TM1 Toolroom Mill
Haas VF4 Vertical Machining Center

“While there are more and more carbon fiber 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, Vice President and Operations Director of Composite Resources.  “These investments are part of what differentiates us from most other composite shops”.

Composite Resources designs, prototypes and manufactures composite solutions for Aerospace, Military, Medical, Automotive, Sports and Industrial applications. Engineering composite solutions is our passion. We use advanced materials like Carbon Fiber, Kevlar, Nomex and many others. We use multiple process methods in order to meet customer's precision specifications. Our objective is to make our client's ideas into products and help them become successful. We also offer stock carbon fiber tubes, sheets, rods and angles.
