Despatch has a long history of working with the world’s top aerospace companies to provide custom thermal processing solutions. We have experience in many areas related to carbon fiber composites, from the oxidation of fiber to curing composites. Our breadth of knowledge in this market is extensive and we have a thorough understanding of the strict temperature uniformity and airflow requirements necessary to produce high performance, advanced materials.
With fuel economy demands increasing, the automotive market is turning to carbon fiber for reduced weight, combined with exceptional strength and safety. Despatch has established relationships with car manufacturers, providing carbon fiber production lines.
Despatch center-to-ends oxidation ovens provide the fastest oxidation rate and highly uniform fiber densification. The Despatch Carbon Fiber Research line is a complete carbon fiber production line with fully integrated services and control platform, in a micro-scale package. CFR users are fully equipped to run PAN trials without production line disruption, perform analytical data collection and experiment with variable hardware configurations and process parameter variations.
