Process and Technology Solutions for Carbon Fiber Production
Despatch Industries is the expert in thermal process technology. For more than 40 years, carbon fiber manufacturers
have utilized our world-leading oxidation technology to produce the highest quality and most uniform fiber. We
offer the experience and knowledge to provide fully integrated lines for small and large tow. Recent Despatch
advancements enable our global customers to achieve the lowest cost per kilogram of fiber produced.
The World’s Finest Oxidation Oven
Oxidation is the most critical step in the production of carbon fiber and Despatch provides the world’s leading
oxidation technology. Since oxidation is an exothermic process, uniform, consistent airflow to uniformly remove
heat from all tows across the web is a critical success factor. The Despatch Center-to-Ends Carbon Fiber Oxidation
Oven produces a uniform airflow over the tows allowing the process to be operated closer to the “exotherm”,
increasing the chemical reaction rate. Consistency of process results in no skinning (uncured core) and more
uniform densification across the entire tow band. Center-to-ends airflow provides for up to 30% faster rates of
oxidation than conventional cross flow or vertical down flow oven designs.
Integrated Carbon Fiber Production Lines
Through our experience and expertise in the carbon fiber industry, we have established relationships that allow us
to facilitate the installation, commission and optimization of a complete carbon fiber line through one point of
contact. Despatch keeps your costs down with efficient use of energy such as using reclaimed heat, easy access
to all parts of the line for maintenance, and top quality components for maximum uptime. As an integrated solution
provider we are able to install, commissioning and optimize your complete carbon fiber line for peak performance.
