Formax’s New Glass Malitronic™ MULTIAXIAL Machine Now Operational and Working at Full Capacity

FORMAX, a leading global manufacturer of carbon fibre and speciality reinforcements, continues its dynamic plans for expansion with the completion of the installation of a new Karl Mayer 100” Malitronic™ MULTIAXIAL machine.

This state of the art equipment increases FORMAX’s glass capacity by 25%, supporting the company’s continued growth in the glass fibre multiaxial market.

The Malitronic™ MULTIAXIAL machine features a batching unit for producing 100” rolls of up to 4 tons. This feature, combined with optimal weft insertion and layer fixation plus an average speed that is twice that of standard 50” machines, means that it can produce an equivalent capacity of 4 x 50” glass multiaxial with the same level of excellent fabric uniformity and technical quality.

The new machine is housed within a 500m² production hall at FORMAX’s headquarters in Leicester. The refurbished building features sophisticated temperature and humidity controls ensuring the highest quality glass reinforcements are manufactured. FORMAX has recruited and trained a number of operators and support staff to manage the installation and day to day running of the machine.
