CST Acquires Aeronaut Table Plotter Cutter

By All News, Industrial News

Aeronaut Plotter Cutter

CST is constantly upgrading our capabilities. We’ve recently acquired an Aeronaut Plotter Cutter which has automated the cutting-out of prepreg and dry fabrics. This machine ensures consistency of the final product with ease of repeatability, and because it saves time, our customers save money. We now have the ability to pre-package kits before production.

Our plotter cutter has a table size of 7 metres x 1.5 metres, giving us a wide scope for automated cutting.

All you need to attach our forestay attachment, spreader attachment and mainsheet hangers, is glue.

These fittings are now available at CST Express, our online store.

New Shaw 650 rectangular boom section

CST is constantly redesigning our marine products to ensure we continue to provide sailors with the latest, strongest and lightest carbon fibre products. We have engineered and produced a rectangular boom section for the Shaw 650. The new section is stiffer, lighter and stronger with a length of 3.5 metres and weight of 5kg fully rigged. The new boom will be in action in Sydney soon with the first boat to receive it ready to go sailing.

If you want one of the new boom sections check out CST Express, our convenient online store for all your marine needs.
