The world’s most advanced vacuum table uses over 500,000 vacuum nozzles across the entire laminating surface. Through these nozzles we apply a constant vacuum which draws out all air bubbles, holds the membrane in place, and compresses the membrane layers.
The EPEX process keeps the sail exactly in position by means of a vacuum. Computer-controlled machines position complex rows of fibres with high precision. Track for track, layer for layer. All this occurs within tight restrictions on tolerances which allows for the concentration of all of the necessary rows of fibres directly at the point of major load. Additional reinforcement is, to a large extent, not required.
