Fibermaq Consolidates Filament Winding Portfolio

March 26 2018

Fibermaq served to consolidate its filament winding portfolio in 2017. “The recovery in demand last year helped to restore the losses reported in 2016, when our turnover fell more than 30%. In parallel, we managed to negotiate a filament winding machine, a sophisticated equipment with higher levels of automation and customization,” said Christian de Andrade, director of Fibermaq.

Among the main supplies of 2017, Andrade highlights the supply of a machine designed to produce conical composite poles of up to 12 m long, to Mossoro Premoldados. The pole segment is one of the few that has been immune to the Brazilian crisis. It is estimated that approximately 10% of all poles produced in the country are made of composites, and this share is expected to double over the next two to three years.

For the tank market, Fibermaq’s director emphasizes the construction of a filament winding machine model that produces tanks up to 4 m in diameter and 6 m in length. “It is in operation at Delta Vinil’s plant.” As for tubes, one of Fibermaq’s most relevant cases is the machines supplied to the Stringal Hurner Group. Each machine produces bars of 6 m in length, and 50 to 700 mm in diameter.

In 2017, Fibermaq was elected for the sixth consecutive time the Top of Mind of the Composites Industry in the category “Equipment” – organized by the Latin American Composite Materials Association (ALMACO), it is the industry’s main award.
