Company Name: Western Advanced Engineering Co.
Company Type: Manufacturing
Western Advanced Engineering Co. is an engineering and manufacturing company producing the most productive prepreg equipment for continuous fiber reinforced composites.
We are the originators of the "S-wrap"™ prepreg process. This process has advanced the prepreg process to a reliable and repeatable process and has removed it from the "black art" arena.
The WAECO prepreg machines can hot melt impregnate woven fabrics (carbon, aramid, glass) with an AFW of up to 1000 g/m² without weave distortion. An added capability is the capacity to laminate thermoplastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene These products are widely used in ballistic applications.
Western Advanced Engineering Co. provides the most advanced engineering concepts and processes for continuous fiber impregnated composites. We also provide custom engineering services, on a non disclosure basis, to update and modernize existing machinery. All custom engineering is produced on computer assisted drafting systems. Drawings and other engineering data can be transferred directly to our customers engineering computer via the internet or by disc transfer.
If you are in the market for any impregnation machinery, coating equipment or update of your existing equipment, we will welcome the opportunity to speak with you.
