Alan harper composites

Our services
In support of our fiRST system for composite vacuum bags we are able to provide you with on site vacuum bag building and training service. We have manufactured over 50 vacuum bags in the last 12 months at various world locations from India, Malaysia to Italy, Denmark, France , Holland and UK. Whilst with clients we are able to train in all aspects of correct bag manufacture and assist in optimizing infusion strategies and intensifier integrated into the bag design for pre preg consolidation. Our combined 60 years of composite mould building experience, including moulding fibre, resin and core choice enables us to advise clients in best practice for face tool manufacture prior to vacuum bag construction. At our UK manufacturing facility clients are invited to attend with their production moulds for first vacuum bag conversion and to be trained in machine and finished vacuum bag use. They are also able to witness at least one pre production moulding made by the fiRST system within their own mould. Our on line technical advise service helps clients to correctly pre prepare their existing moulds for vacuum bag manufacture including focus on flange design, injection and vacuum porting and laminate vacuum security. Do e-mail or call us today for technical appraisal advice on your particular designs which you would like to convert to fiRST
