Rock West Composites Completes Its Filament Winding Facility Expansion

December 16 2019

Rock West Composites (RWC) celebrated the full operational capacity of its new, dedicated filament winding facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. RWC expanded into a third manufacturing bay at their building, adding 20,000 square feet of space for staff and new equipment. As the company’s capability in the filament winding arena has grown, the need to consolidate equipment and expertise in a centralized location became essential in fulfilling customer demand for this product.

The company has aligned several multi-spindle, wet winding and tow preg, and small to large diameter winders. Capability includes manufacturing tubes in a wide variety of dimensions up to 315” long and 30” in diameter. RWC has also deployed a custom resin mixing and dispensing system for precise resin mix ratios to assure mixing accuracy and consistency. Several ovens to accommodate the increased tube production, a new extended length hydraulic mandrel extractor, and mandrel storage are all closely located within the cell to improve efficiency.
