JEC Europe 2014 - A new research & development programme designed to drive the development of breakthrough technologies for the global composites and carbon fibre sectors is being launched by market-leading creel manufacturer Cygnet Texkimp.

The programme, based around a £100,000 new trial line, will include extensive trials of sizing, spreading and film coating machinery destined for use by prepreg and composites manufacturers producing high-grade carbon fibre for the aerospace and performance textile markets.

The programme will be housed at Cygnet Texkimp’s UK headquarters in Cheshire, where companies will be able to run detailed trials of new machinery using their own materials, to help determine the exact specifications of the technologies they need.
