Seasons Greetings from Composite Mouldings Group
Since investing into our Resin infusion tables (measuring 5m x 6m and 3m x 4m) we have seen the most growth in this area of the business. In fact our Resin Infusion business has become so popular we're upskilling all staff to be able to carry out this method of working, so that during busy periods and going into the future we can meet customer demand. It is nice to get customer feedback on the quality and clarity of our infusion work but also reassuring when the fibre fraction calculations show that we're achieving a 60% fibre to 40% resin ratio.
Pete Burgess joined the business at the beginning of the year, after 20 years running the CNC shop at Green Marine. With Pete's knowledge and skill our machine runs pretty much constantly churning out Foam, Plywood and Core kits. I was particularly impressed when we were able to produce a 3D chair plug on our 3 axis CNC machine. See photos below.
We can also machine E-plate, Carbon Fibre and Nomex to name a few other materials.
Somebody once told me it takes 4 years to get a new boat off the ground and that is pretty much how long it has taken for the Buckley Yacht Design/CMDL built 22ft Buckley Trailer Cruiser to get traction. After a successful Southampton Boat Show we have finally secured orders and are now underway making the production tooling to deliver boats for the start of the sailing season 2019. Stay tuned for our social media posts on progress and lookout for the boat which will be featured in several magazines.
The Bank Holidays work out a bit funny this year seeing a return to work for only a few days before the weekend. Nobody really wants the break to be over so we have decided to stay shut during these days and make the most of some well earned rest. CMDL and BYD will work the last day of the year on 21st December and we will return to work on the 7th January 2019.
From ALL at CMDL and BYD, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
