Assembled in the US, machines cut special fabrics used as reinforcements of composite parts
Fibermaq initiated the distribution of equipment produced by US-based Autometrix, a company specialized in automatic systems for cutting special fabrics, such as carbon and aramid, as well as prepreg materials which reinforce composite parts consumed by the sports and leisure, aerospace, transportation and insulation sectors, among others.
According to Christian de Andrade, director of Fibermaq, the business was motivated by the similarity between the profiles of both companies. “We both produce composite molding equipment. So it totally made sense to include these machines to Fibermaq´s portfolio. And, for Autometrix, “Fibermaq’s experience in the equipment segment was decisive,” said Gil Griego, CEO of Autometrix. The Brazilian company will also be responsible for providing local technical assistance and supplying spare parts.
