Machines had their structure resized in order to become portable
Fibermaq, a Brazilian leader in machinery for composites molding, supplied three machines to the local operations of the Italian company Polynt, a company specialized in the production of resins, gelcoats and plastic putty.
The equipment – which consist of spray-up, gelcoat and RTM injection machines, all of the Evolution family – have been adapted to enable Polynt’s technicians to transport them to their clients. “We resized the structures of the machines to allow them to be more compact and portable, but their flow and performance are exactly the same as the conventional models,” said Christian de Andrade, director of Fibermaq.
Pedro de Souza, technical assistant of Polynt, explains that the machines will be used for both external demonstrations and testing at the company’s units – Polynt has plants in the states of São Paulo (Taboão da Serra and Piracicaba) and Rio Grande do Sul (Caxias do Sul). “We already had the machines produced by Fibermaq, a company that has always provided us excellent support.”
Founded in 1978, in the city of São Paulo, Fibermaq is a pioneer in the manufacture of equipment for molding composites, epoxy and adhesives in general. During this period, more than 5,000 spray-up machines, gelcoat application, RTM injection and filament winding machines, among others, were sold by the company in Brazil and throughout Latin America.
In 2015, Fibermaq was elected for the fourth 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.
