The use of composites in the automotive industry is growing rapidly.

Originally restricted to the exotic end of the spectrum, the demand for lightweight structures and fuel efficiency has prompted mainstream manufacturers to develop the use of composites in their products.

Composite Integration has worked on many automotive projects with applications ranging from primary chassis structures and cosmetic body panels to composite wheels.

The Ciject One Injection Machine for RTM and VRTM is a sophisticated machine with programmable functions and an extensive level of control options. The Ciject One features an unrivalled level of control with simplicity of operation.

Features include:

  • Unique pivoted pump mounting that allows easy access to entire pump assembly for easy maintenance
