Lattice & Lattice Lite
Perfectly complements our range of Synergex composite fibres by maximising performance and eliminating waste
Lattice is an optimised continuous fibre laying technique to create preforms without cutting or chopping fibres. This allows customers to specify the exact position and direction of fibres for their application without compromising strength.
Lattice Lite is the final moulded composite product, providing advanced performance and precise match to customer requirements that are extremely difficult to achieve by other existing technologies.
- Footwear plates
- Torsion bars
- Heel counters
- Knuckle protection
Features and Benefits
- Fully optimised fibre paths for intelligent component performance that enhances different characteristics throughout the part, such as flexibility, torsion and rigidity.
- Utilises Synergex Commingled fibre providing accelerated moulding process cycle times (circa 120 seconds).
- Eliminates the need for additional resin steps either prepreg or resin transfer moulding which accelerates manufacturing processes.
- Compared to more traditional composite operations that waste 30% or more material, Lattice and Lattice Lite reduce material waste to less than 5% using continuous fibre placement.
- From the initial design to final product, we provide world class service for unique fibre technology.
There is no limited product range. We generate the finished parts for each customer design.
For Lattice Lite as a final part, properties will depend on each customer’s specific requirements for thickness, flex, torsion, rigidity etc.
