I14 Australian Nationals

By All News, Marine News

Irwin Sails had a convincing win at the 2003 Nats in Perth. From a fleet of 38, in some hairy conditions, Lindsay Irwin and his crew Andrew Perry won four of the seven heats (the first two by 5 and 7 minutes respectively!). Irwin Sails had a CST14 rig, prodder and boom. See for all the details.

New Machine

By All News, Industrial News, Marine News

CST has recently had a new addition to the factory. We have just purchased a new state of the art filament winding machine to give us our second production line. The purchase allows us to stay at the fore front of winding technology as well as increase our capacity and capability. This will assist us in extending our product range as well as allow us to pass on the benefits to our customers.

We are hoping to have the new production line installed and up and running by the start of January. Our new production line is aimed at smaller tubes enabling us to produce more of our stock tubes for general consumption. The new machine will mesh in nicely with our existing Quality Assurance System to ensure our existing supply of quality tube.
