SAERTEX also provides significant added value for the customers by producing, upon request, two or three-dimensional preforms made of non-crimp fabrics. We employ special cutting, stitching and binder fixation technologies – proven processes which we individually tailor to the requirements of our customers’ products. The use of our preforms helps organise our customers’ production processes more efficiently.
Preforming of multiaxial reinforcements:
Our technical fabric solutions are always individually developed in cooperation with our customers to deliver top-performance and ensure cost efficiency in the manufacturing process. In 2002 SAERTEX entered the field of component manufacture with its factory in Stade’s “CFRP Valley”. In our 8,500m2 fully air-conditioned manufacturing facility our engineers develop individual composite solutions for our customers – active in the sectors of aerospace, offshore, shipbuilding and transportation for instance – from the initial idea right through to production standard.
Our special aerospace team provides a high level of consulting expertise in terms of materials and applications. At our factory in Stade we produce preforms and, when required, undertake the manufacture of complete components in our 8,500m2, fully air-conditioned production facility, e.g. as an approved QSF-B supplier to Airbus.
