JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Asia 2012 - MTorres made a multimillion euro investment in a new R&D facility for composite materials lamination equipment.
M. Torres aims at offering its customers in the aerospace industry a single and reliable source of efficient manufacturing systems for composite and metallic structural components. Following this strategic approach, the company has made a multimillion euro investment in a new R&D facility for composite materials lamination equipment. This investment is fully aligned with its strategy to focus on its core competencies, namely the development of capital equipment solutions. This strategy is implemented with a strong focus on composite manufacturing equipment, not only for aerospace but also for other industrial sectors such as wind blade manufacturing, automotive and transport in general. It is also the result of the substantial growth of the company’s composite aero structures equipment business over the last decade, and its continuous efforts to meet the future market demand.
M. Torres Diseños Industriales (Torres de Elorz, Navarra, Spain) has created this dedicated facility around a state-of-the-art technology that will provide a new resource to customers, focusing on demonstrators and prototyping. With this new service, the company will also be able to support customers with real manufacturing data that will enable them to get a real input rather than a simulation, in order to achieve the best and quickest payback.
More than 100 guests attended the inauguration event, which included facility tours, guest speeches, live demonstrations and the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The clean room houses a well-equipped facility featuring the latest in automated fibre placement technology, as well as a platform available for new lamination concepts.
This new facility, located at the Torres de Elorz site (Navarra, Spain), exploits the company’s market-leading expertise in composite manufacturing systems to expand its global operations.
