Save Time, Money and Effort with Custom Process Material Kits
Only from Composites One and Aerovac. Innovative. Dependable. Results.
One way that marine manufacturers can save time, money and effort – now and throughout 2024 – is by taking advantage of innovative, dependable kitting solutions from Aerovac, a leading supplier of high-quality process materials for vacuum infusion.
“Many marine manufacturers have been using our precut kits for core and fiberglass so adding process materials to the mix makes perfect sense,” said Marcy Offner, Director, Marketing Communications, Composites One. “With our innovative kitting solutions, customers will not only save time, money and effort but also increase productivity, optimize work processes, gain manufacturing efficiencies, and improve overall part quality,” she added.
According to Offner, custom process material kitting solutions provide undeniable benefits to customers in a variety of industries. “Aerovac Kitting Services have been shown to help manufacturers in markets like wind energy and aerospace reduce production time by more than 50% and reduce material waste by an average of 40%,” she said. “Marine manufacturers can take advantage of these improvements as well,” she added.
And that’s just the start. Other measurable improvements achieved through kitting include:
• Greater process repeatability with quality and consistency
• Increased productivity
• Reduced material handling, improving employees’ safety and health
• Reduced cycle times, improving mold life
• Reduced part-to-part variation and improved bag consistency
• Standardized work processes
• Reduced operator dependency
• Simplified vacuum bagging process
Here’s how it works. Composites One and Aerovac Technical Support Team Members start by meeting with customers to identify their particular needs and configure solutions that deliver the maximum savings in time, cost and manual operator resources. Aerovac’s highly skilled engineers will then design complex, tailored kits containing everything the customer needs – from precut consumables for simple, predetermined shapes and dimensions, to complex, multi-layer integrated vacuum bag assemblies.
“The best part is that marine manufacturers work directly with their Composites One Technical Sales Rep to ensure everything goes according to plan,” added Offner.
The process doesn’t end there. Marine manufacturers are welcome to attend workshops and webinars led by the Aerovac and Composites One Technical Support Team so they can advance their knowledge by learning more about product usage, specification requirements, and process technologies like vacuum infusion and advanced prepreg processing.
