Fiber-Tech Engineering

 
A premier manufacturer of custom composite ducting, pipe, and tanks located in
Southern California.
 
Situation:
Fiber-tech's mandrels used in making fiber reinforced pipe and ducting products had
 deteriorated from use and required re-skinning.
 
Solution:
We removed the old skin reinforced the internal structure, Upon removal and inspection of the sub-frame, it was clear that many stress fractures were present.  To insure the final product would last we contacted Fiber-Tech to explain the situation and proceeded to repair the stress fractures. Only after we were satisfied that the sub-frame would hold up to continued stress of continues work, we cut and rolled new steel skin creating a seamless circle the length of the 23' long mandrels. 
 
Results:
Fiber-tech has been very pleased with our work stating it is the best re-skin work they have had completed.  We take pride in the overall project and insure that what is not visible is up to spec for a lasting product.
With our in-house capabilities, we are able to start and complete projects completely within budget and out the door within one week.
