Airbond makes splicers of unique form and function, specially developed for use in the manufacture of composite materials for the aerospace and automotive industries, and other applications such as wind turbine blades.

Composites manufacture is expensive; waste is costly, and machine down-time is disruptive. Airbond's new splicers reduce waste at all stages of manufacture. Their greatest benefit is in making splices connecting bobbin to bobbin, ensuring continuity of production. There is no need to halt the production process when bobbins run out, or when the fabric specification needs to be changed.
Fibres such as glass and carbon are very difficult to splice. However, Airbond has established a world lead, by developing splicers to meet the challenging requirements of the composites industry. We remain committed to research; we know that the industry will continue to expand and change. Airbond will continue to develop new and better splicers, building on our existing knowledge to provide even greater capability for our customers.
