Franklin has taken comfort to the next level with the addition of composites to our product range
Our team has over 25 years of experience in design and manufacture of composite structures.
Using the latest design tools to engineer the perfect balance of strength, weight and comfort using composite materials.
Multiple composite manufacturing processes available in-house to allow for a competitive edge – by using the right process for the right part.
Ply by ply analysis capabilities and an extensive material database to efficiently optimize the design.
With more than a quarter-century of expertise, our team boasts an extensive track record in crafting precision carbon fiber and fiberglass components. While exceling in delivering top-tier, made-to-order products, their unique strength lies in the ability to tailor a custom-engineered solution. Their products find applications in the realms of aerospace, medical, defense, and energy, underscoring their versatility and reach in these domains.
A structured methodology is employed to turn customers’ requirements into tangible results. Our approach harnesses parametric modeling, streamlined electronic data transfer to manufacturing, and a range of processes to meticulously customize engineering solutions. This aligns us precisely with the project’s unique technical and budgetary prerequisites.
Franklin is your all-inclusive destination for composite solutions. We offer a comprehensive suite of capabilities, encompassing tool fabrication, composite processing, and precision part machining and finishing. We leverage a variety of materials in tooling, and our material repertoire spans the entire spectrum of composites.
Our extensive range of processes includes press cure, vacuum oven, resin transfer molding (RTM), vacuum assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM), and spray layup. To support these processes, we are equipped with multiple hot and cooled presses, ovens, cutting-edge 4-axis and 5-axis machining centers, and precision ply cutters.
Whether your project demands static or dynamic analysis, our team excels at modeling composite products, employing a ply-by-ply approach that precisely defines material and orientation. This expertise ensures the development of the most lightweight and efficient solution for your specific application.
Furthermore, we have a rich history of extensive material testing, particularly in aerospace applications. Which has enabled us to compile a proprietary database containing a wealth of data on composite fibers and resins. This invaluable resource empowers us to design products that not only meet but confidently exceed rigorous testing requirements.
