Rocky Mountain Composites (RMC) is dedicated to
staying on the leading edge of filament winding methods. With
intuitive ability to combine the 'art' and the 'science'
of winding, RMC's founder, Larry Ashton, is responsible for the
development of many filament winding techniques which are now
considered mainstream in winding technology.
RMC currently maintains dual carriage, three axis filament winding
systems. The larger of the two has a capacity of 180" long and
60" dia. The smaller has a capacity of 96" long and 48" dia.
RMC's expertise in winding allows us to benefit from many years
of experience. Areas of the technology that RMC has perfected
. The use of hard and soft winding tools.
. The ability to wind irregular shapes - 'It doesn't have to
be round to be wound.'
. The simultaneous winding of fibers at more than one winding
. The use of the winding mandrel as a lay-up tool for
reinforcement, doilies, closeouts, etc.
. Accelerated turn-arounds.
. Adaptation of high performance materials not intended for
. The ability to make hardware and software adjustments in a
'prompt response' mode.
. Accurate and consistent resin impregnation and/or pre-preg
For production, RMC has the ability to design and build the most
efficient winding machines to support and optimize high production
rates at the lowest possible capital costs.
