SHD Composites offers a wide range of tooling and component prepreg suitable for autoclave, press and oven curing.

The ​Compcut 200​ represents the latest in Sharp & Tappin’s range of composite machining solutions. This new machine has been designed to offer composite R&D teams and test centres affordable access to an easy to use though inherently sophisticated and robust plate saw.

“We are extremely proud to have one of our new Compcut 200s being used by such a well-known and respected company as SHD Composites, who are at the cutting edge of advanced composite technology,” commented Ben Sharp, Technical Director, Sharp & Tappin.

According to the manufacturer, the Compcut 200 features include compact size with small footprint, high quality surface finish allowing immediate testing, clear working area visibility, excellent perpendicularity and parallelism, automatic material positioning and innovative clamping, ability to run multiple specimen cuts, fully enclosed work area ensures user safety, both dry and wet cutting options, and automated control and part programme capability for consistent results.

“We have been using the Compcut 200 for the past month and are already seeing the benefits of its enhanced production capabilities,” said Alix Sauget, Research & Development Manager, SHD Composites.

“In short, the Compcut 200 has enabled us to quickly, easily and consistently produce high quality test samples, which all have an exceptional cut, perpendicularity and parallelism. Thus meaning we are now able to test our samples straight from the saw without needing to deburr or polish them first, saving us a significant amount of time and effort every day. We believe the Compcut 200 will be a valuable addition to our organization and are looking forward to developing and building on our relationship with Sharp & Tappin going forward.”

“We are really pleased to be one of the first companies in the UK to be using the Compcut 200 as an active part of our composite testing process and are already seeing the benefits because of the amount of time it is saving the team,” added Helen Doughty, Director, SHD Composites.

“This purchase combined with other major investments in developing and enhancing our in-house composite production and testing capabilities, ensures we can support the requirements and demands of our customers in the long-term.”
