Cannon exhibits at Composites Europe 2014

Cannon will be present again at this important event with a stand (G40 in hall 8b) and several important highlights for the processing of composites and polyurethanes: Estrim, a complete moulding solution for the epoxy-based fast RTM process designed for the production of automotive, leisure and sport parts. On top of dedicated preformers, polymerisation clamps and moulds, Cannon offers the E-System, high-pressure metering and mixing equipment that guarantees very fast demoulding times and perfect distribution of the resin across the entire mould surface.The industrial results of an innovative project named Cresim (Carbon Recycling by Epoxy Special Impregnation), finally aimed at the development of proper processing methods for the manufacture of CFRP parts using recycled carbon fibres. This Life+ EU-funded project addresses fully the waste reuse issue by demonstrating a new innovative manufacturing process, which will potentially reuse up to 100 % of the carbon fibre waste and scraps from different industrial sectors, transforming a costing environmental problem of today in an opportunity of greening the production processes and getting economic benefit for tomorrow.The equipment for the wind-power industry - resin infusion dispensers, degassing units, gluing machines for blades - that is rewarding Cannon with growing volumes of business worldwide, thanks to the availability of dedicated low-pressure metering units for the use of epoxy formulations in the largest blades, manufactured for off-shore and conventional wind turbines.High-pressure mixing heads: advanced solutions for general purpose polyurethane and epoxy resins up to specialised applications such as filled (SoliSpray) and glass-reinforced (InterWet) formulations, multi-component and multi-hardness foaming, high-output, cavity filling.The range of Cannon solutions dedicated to the automotive and transportation industries, in particular for structural and lightweight components for interior and exterior body parts. All the above mentioned turn-key solutions are today available for parts manufacturers based across the five continents: Cannon's extended network of direct offices and agencies guarantees prompt local service, availability of spare parts, technical and marketing assistance. A qualified international team of specialists in composites and polyurethane technologies will welcome all interested visitors at the Cannon stand G40 in hall 8b.
