Kit Cutter

Kit cutting has become an integrated part of our manufacturing process at EPM Composites. Our Kit Cutting department has a well-established and highly efficient cutting service which provides consistently cut, high quality parts in pre-preg.

We currently have a 5m kit cutter, which cut fabrics of up to 1.5m in width in pre-preg. Our machine is supported by our CAM office, where we can receive two-dimensional CAD drawings for cutting via email.

Kits are cut, bagged, sealed and frozen within our freezer facility until required. Every kit is produced in a timely manner to ensure out-life of material is not overly affected, with all kits produced at EPM has a material kit sheet indicating full traceability of materials used.

Using our composite kit cutting service offers a number of benefits:

  • Composite material savings
  • Time savings and improvement of delivery times to customers
  • Labour savings
  • Reduced material handling
  • Reliability and consistency of production
