Harper International recently announced it has finalized a contract with a client in Brazil for a research scale carbon fiber processing line. The line will include Harper’s oxidation ovens, LT and HT furnaces, as well as a state-of-the-art HMI supervisory control interface, material handling and material treatment systems such as creels, winders, tensions stand, electrolysis, washing and drying, and waste gas abatement systems.

The micro-line can reportedly process continuous tows of carbon fiber with high precision and outstanding data collection capabilities. The system will be used largely for investigation into the use of carbon fiber, as well as to expand the local knowledge base and proficiency at the university level. Harper’s client is leading the first step forward in the Brazilian market to develop a carbon fiber industry and technology expertise.
