Basalt Center enters the market of composite products equipment manufacturers

The company offers integrated development and manufacture of moulds and technological equipment that meet high production and operational requirements.

The main activity of Global Basalt Engineering LLC is creation of effective productions on release of continuous basalt fiber (СBF) with technologies of the last generation and composites on the basis of СBF (Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites as BFRP).

Basalt Center has experience and essential technical and technological expertise necessary for designing and manufacturing of high-quality equipment from various feedstocks in order to produce a variety of products according to the customers’ requirements.

The equipment for manufacturing composite components is a crucial point for producing high quality products. The manufacturing accuracy and matrix quality directly affects the costs, production process and the manufacturer’s image as a whole.

Basalt Center guarantees the highest accuracy and compliance of the supplied equipment with the customers’ requirements. The process is under careful control starting from making 3D master model to the milling on CNC machines. The maximum permissible deviation from the true geometry is guaranteed at 0.2 mm / m2.

Either equipment or product geometry is preliminary analyzed then a conclusion on the equipment fabrication properties with recommendations for optimization is made. This results in reducing costs and time frame for producing the equipment and final products.

Depending on the operational requirements, the equipment can be equipped with:

  1. fasteners and transportation elements;
  2. centering elements for correct equipment elements closing;
  3. breachblocks;
  4. sealing system with clamping sensor;
  5. Injection and drainage system in accordance with the customer’s requirements;
  6. electric heating elements;
  7. elements of water heating / cooling of the equipment;
  8. temperature sensors.

The equipment can be used for various manufacturing processes:

  • Pultrusion
  • RTM
  • Vacuum infusion
  • SMC
  • BMC
  • RIM
  • LFI
  • Gravitational and centrifugal casting
  • Moulding of woven epoxy-based prepregs

The equipment materials are chosen depending on the product designation (from a sample to small batches and then to batch production):

– steel;
– aluminum alloys;
– model plates of high density (epoxy, polyurethane);
– high-density polyamide;
– carbon plastic;
– basalt plastic;
– glass fiber;
– MDF.

To produce the equipment 3 and 5-axis machining centers with the maximum dimensions of the table 6x3x1.5 m are used. At the customer’s request, it is possible to scan the equipment surface to document the accuracy of the manufacturing.

 “We focus on ensuring the quality of domestic equipment used for composite products production at an extremely high level. This is a direct way to mass introduction of composites in real production, simplification of manufacturing process and the opportunity to take the lead in the world markets”,

says Aleksey Azarevich, the General Director of Basalt Center.
