Sigmatex Technical Excellence Centre
Sigmatex has a very well equipped technical department which works with customers to develop advanced and innovative carbon fibre textile solutions. Materials are designed to meet all quality requirements, specifications and performance criteria. Areas which affect materials performance can be tailored and include fibre orientation, crimp, drapeability, thickness and resin permeability. This approach, which has led to the development of products such as 3D woven carbon fibre, results in an improvement in the performance, reliability and cost of carbon fibre structure fabrication, and enables the use of carbon fibre in new applications. These textile solutions often require a dynamic, innovative approach to design for manufacture, in addition to expert knowledge about carbon fibre, which is the core strength of Sigmatex.
