Bindatex, the UK’s leading provider of specialist process and cutting services, will showcase its new thermoplastic splicing capability at JEC World 2019, in Paris, next month.

The company has been at the forefront of precision narrow width slitting of UD composite tapes for innovative aerospace applications and has now successfully developed the capability to produce Lay-ready thermoplastic splices in UD tapes that are manufactured with PEEK, PAEK and PEKK polymers.

This development in proprietary technology will enable Bindatex to deliver defined spool lengths which can help to increase its customers’ productivity on automated fibre placement (AFP) and automated tape laying (ATL) equipment, the company reports.

“We are well ahead of the game in difficult to cut materials and in delivering spliced tapes to very high precision. These, in turn, are making our customers more efficient and effective in AFP and ATL. This is our fourth year exhibiting at JEC and we’re looking forward to discussing this newly developed technology,” commented Chris Lever, Bindatex Managing Director.

Bindatex has vast experience of cutting composite carbon and glass fibre prepreg materials in diverse formats including unidirectional (UD) tapes and traverse wound spools; thermoplastic and thermoset carbon fibre prepreg; woven fabrics; multi-axial fabrics and non-woven materials.

The UK-based company is an approved supplier to major thermoplastic and thermoset manufacturers across the globe. Its customers include world class material manufacturers and end users across composites, aerospace, automotive, marine, advanced manufacturing, healthcare, energy and renewables.

Since moving into larger premises in 2018, Bindatex has doubled its capacity. The company’s modern manufacturing facility comprises five state-of-the-art slitting machines capable of handling everything from narrow width precision slitting for automated fibre placement to automated tape laying; flake/chopped fibre production, micrometre slitting / kiss cutting; traverse wound spooling as well as die and sheet/panel cutting.
