Composites and advanced materials precision slitting company Bindatex has doubled its capacity by investing in a new slitting line. The new line has increased Bindatex’s capacity to 30 tonnes per year. This increase has also generated five new jobs. The new line can cut UD, prepreg and composite materials to widths of just 3.175mm.

The Manchester-based company, who have been cutting composites for over 15 years, is the only company in the UK that can undertake precision slitting to widths as low as 1mm. The narrow width poses a challenge for many composite cutting companies.

“This new slitting line has doubled our capacity and allowed us to recruit more staff. It is an exciting time for Bindatex as we expand our company,” commented Chris Lever, Bindatex’s Managing Director.

The UK-based company is an approved supplier to major thermoplastic and thermoset manufacturers. Its customers include material manufacturers and end users across composites, aerospace, automotive, marine, advanced manufacturing, healthcare, energy and renewables. Bindatex’s lead time from order to delivery is up to six weeks, half the time of other larger companies in the sector.

Bindatex is particularly proud of its flexibility with regards to order size. Working with small developmental orders allows Bindatex’s customers flexibility in their workload. “We can meet orders of all sizes as our nimble operations can quickly change to address the varying needs of our customers. Our close working relationship with our clients builds trust and understanding of their business needs, which we constantly strive to support,” said Mr Lever.
