After significant development, we have just launched our new small air router designed for dust free trimming of composites. If you'd like to see us demonstrating this equipment we have new videos on our You tube channel.
Please come along and see us at the Advanced Engineering show (more details later) where we will have the tools for you to pick up and get a feel for. You might be surprised how light and easy to handle this equipment is. Sadly we won't be able to let you loose on actual cutting of laminates (sorry, health and safety), but the videos online will give you a good idea.
When we say every tool we recommend for use with composites is tried and tested buy us we mean it. Developing equipment involves months playing with existing tools (which we do enjoy), modifying parts, putting non-recommended bits with incompatible tools, getting new parts made, sitting round in meetings (drinking lots of tea) and trying to think 'outside the box' (that expression results in childish responses here).
We have made some interesting discoveries along the way:
I attended the 2015 Thermoplastic Composites conference organised by Composites UK and the British Plastics Federation last week and left thinking 'what a constructive day', (something you don't always get).
The presentations were very complimentary, technical, informative and openly honest with regards to thermoplastic composites. There were some interesting discussions:
