The new machine is installed in a 500 m² production hall at FORMAX’s headquarters in Leicester, UK. The refurbished building features temperature and humidity controls to ensure the highest quality glass reinforcements are manufactured.

The Malitronic MULTIAXIAL machine features a batching unit for producing 100” rolls of up to 4 tons. This feature, combined with optimal weft insertion and layer fixation, plus an average speed that is twice that of standard 50” machines, means that it can produce an equivalent capacity of 4 x 50” glass multiaxial with the same level of excellent fabric uniformity and technical quality.
