Despatch Provides Carbon Fibre Production Equipment to Australian Research Facility
Despatch Industries is again teaming up with the Australian Carbon Fibre Research Facility (ACFRF) to provide carbon fiber production equipment. A complete CFR, Carbon Fiber Research production line is to be installed alongside the 20 ton per annum carbon fiber pilot line already under construction at the research facility located at the University’s Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus in Victoria, Australia.
The CFR 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.
The acquisition of the CFR from Despatch really adds another layer of capability to ACFRF’s already impressive suite of equipment and indicates that, through the continuing support of the Victorian State Government, we are serious about taking our place in the global carbon fibre community, Our local and international industry partners are very excited about the ability to progress fibre development from the laboratory bench to a full pilot line all within the secure ACFRF Facility,” he went on to say. “The flexibility of the CFR line and its ability to be reconfigured so easily is, once again, a credit to Despatch’s engineering team.
