Bindatex, known for precision cutting of difficult to cut materials, has doubled its capacity by investing in a new composite slitting line. The new line has increased composites slitting capacity to 30 tonnes per year. The line can cut UD, prepreg, and composite materials to widths of just 3.175mm. The investment has also generated five new jobs.

With over 15 years’ of experience of composites cutting, Bindatex is the only company in the UK that can undertake precision slitting to widths as low as one millimetres. Many other composite cutting companies have tried to consistently and accurately slit material down to such narrow widths and failed. Their lead time from order to delivery can be less than six weeks, half the time of other, larger companies in the sector, the company said in a media statement.

“This new slitting line has doubled our capacity and allowed us to recruit more staff. It is an exciting time for Bindatex as we expand our company,” Bindatex MD, Chris Lever said.

“We can meet orders of all sizes as our nimble operations can quickly change to address the varying needs of our customers. Our close working relationship with our clients builds trust and understanding of their business needs, which we constantly strive to support.” Nick Barrett, Bindatex BDM said.

Bindatex is an approved supplier to major thermoplastic and thermoset manufacturers across the globe. Its customers include world-class material manufacturers and end-users across many sectors including composites, aerospace, automotive, marine, advanced manufacturing, healthcare, energy, and renewables.
