Composite Resources (2)

Composite Resources, a global leader in the design, prototype development and manufacturing of advanced composite solutions announced today that the company has broken ground on a new 60,000 sq. ft. that will more than double the size of their operations. The new expansion, when complete will bring Composite Resources total engineering and manufacturing space to 112,000 square feet.

"We are excited to see the excavation begin", said Jonathan Bennett, founder and Technical Director of Composite Resources as well as founder and driver for CORE autosport. "The demand for our expertise continues to rise and we need more room to keep pace with our business growth", said Bennett. "We've made investments this year in new technology and tooling that allows us to offer high-end, precision work that a lot of composite fabricators just can't afford to offer and some of those tools take up a lot of space".

"We've had growth from existing customer orders and now that we've created CORE autosport, our motorsports clientele has grown also", said Lisa Bennett, Vice-President and Director of Operations for Composite Resources. "The outlook for high-end, composite materials engineering and manufacturing seems to be bullish over the next several years because companies can make parts lighter, stronger and more durable". "New sectors are opening up too, like Green Energy and Transportation so it makes sense for us to expand in anticipation of that growth".

Located in Rock Hill, South Carolina's TechPark, Composite Resources serves a global market for composite engineering and manufacturing. The use of Carbon Fiber and other composite materials that offer greater strength, lighter weight and more durability continues to grow. Aerospace, industrial, military, medical, automotive, marine, clean energy and sports markets are increasing demand for high quality, precision designed composite solutions. The aerospace market alone is expected to reach $301B by 2018 according to market research firm Lucintel.

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.
