MSA Manufacturing Ltd. (MSA), based in Wimborne, Dorset, is once again at the Advanced Engineering Show (L30) to promote its extensive CNC cutting, slitting, 2D preforming and sequenced kitting capabilities for a wide range of glass and carbon fabrics, both dry reinforcements and prepregs, along with 3 & 5 axis CNC machining and kitting of cores for manufacturing composite parts. MSA also waterjet cuts and kits metal, honeycomb and phenolic sheet, plus other composite materials, such e-glass, carbon and ballistic plate.

In-house production facilities enable MSA to supply a wide range of machined, cut and shaped parts. Prepregs and reinforcement fabrics up to 2.5 metres wide can be cut to size, with roll slitting to provide tapes in custom widths down to 25mm. Waterjet cutting machines can handle composite plates and other sheet materials up to 100mm x 4 x 3 metres, with CNC milling up to 2.44 x 1.22 metres.

MSA is ISO 9001/14001 and JOSCAR accredited, supplying leading OEMs and tier 1/2 manufacturers of hi-tech composite components and finished products for the marine, renewable energy, defence and aerospace industries.  Small and large scale material parts are produced for moulding components as small as brackets for a composite bicycle frame up to complete kits for infusing structural sections in the hulls and decks of luxury superyachts and renewable energy blades.
