4 meters accessory is ideal for the manufacture of pools and boats

Brazilian leader in equipment for composite molding, Fibermaq developed an accessory for the manufacture of large pieces. It is a movable 4 m arm that, when attached to spray-up machines, allows the spraying of the material – fiber and resin – at long distances. 

"It is the ideal accessory for anyone who manufactures swimming pools and boat hulls, among other items. With this arm, composites molders gain a lot of mobility and no longer have the hassle of having to move the machine around the plant,” says Christian de Andrade, director of Fibermaq. 

With a pneumatic drive, the arm can be purchased already attached to Fibermaq’s spray-up lines or separately. “We intend to provide approximately 40 units over a year,” says Andrade.

Founded in 1978, in the city of São Paulo, Fibermaq is pioneer in manufacturing equipment for the processing of composites, polyurethane, epoxy and adhesives in general. During this period, over 3,000 spray-up machines, gelcoat application equipment, RTM injection and filament winding machines, among others, were sold by the company in Brazil and across Latin America.
