Wickert focuses on complete composite production
Engineering company Wickert Maschinenbau says that it is changing its business from making customized presses to being an all-round provider for composite manufacturing.
The company now plans to help support component development, incorporating concept and feasibility studies, overall planning, and general contracting for complete production lines.
According to Wickert, there is an increasing level of automation in composite production and an increased desire for greater system flexibility with the use of additional injection units. The company is also reportedly anticipating a future rise in thermoplastic processing and has identified potential in the use of natural fibers and natural resins.
