Cygnet Texkimp launches narrow-tape slitting machine

The machine can slit up to 50 metres of prepreg per minute and create up to 48 tapes at once. © Cygnet TexkimpFibre handling and converting specialist Cygnet Texkimp has launched a narrow-tape slitter-spooler in a move to make carbon fibre slit tape more accessible to the wider composites market.
