Despatch Industries has specialized in thermal processing for over 100 years and is actively using this technical expertise to provide innovative solutions to critical applications in a broad range of markets and cutting edge technology worldwide. The company has three dedicated business groups to meet the demands of the thermal, solar and carbon fiber markets. This focused commitment has allowed Despatch to become the leading equipment provider in these rapidly expanding industries.
Despatch manufactures a variety of ovens for heat treating synthetic materials such as: thermoset plastics, adhesives, paints and powder coats, rubber and many others. Common applications include: Annealing removes stresses and increases material strength; Curing helps materials to cross-link and retain defect-free characteristics; Drying provides a faster liquid removal from the material; Hardening increases the strength of the material for better resistance to wear.
Composite materials are becoming the material of choice for industries such as aerospace, automotive, wind energy, sports and recreation and industrial construction. Carbon fiber composites provide an exceptionally strong and lightweight material needed for reduced energy consumption and durability.
Despatch provides an advanced out-of-autoclave solution to the challenging composite curing process. Despatch composite curing ovens provide uniflow airflow which delivers heated air from both sides of the chamber for uniform operating temperatures. The ovens can be custom designed for an airflow that is best suited to provide the fastest, most uniform heat-up time for any product.
Despatch offers complete vacuum bagging systems with up to 24 vacuum ports. Jack panels allow connection to as many thermocouples as needed for monitoring the curing process. Mold preparation, including preheating, drying and cleaning processes can also be provided.
A control system is available to fully control your vacuum bagging process. A PC software package is utilized to record all the necessary information relating to your thermocouples, vacuum transducers, temperatures, Hi-limits, user access and all related alarms. This system allows full control and ensures parts are reliable and cured to specification.
Despatch provides laboratory ovens for testing and analyzing materials such as asphalt, polymers, composites, paint and other coatings. Testing is used to define material characteristics, detecting defects and failure susceptibility. Despatch ovens are highly uniform and repeatable with extremely tight temperature tolerances for consistent testing. For simple applications such as heating soil and asphalt samples prior to quality testing the LBB forced convection oven, with its fast heat-up rates and short processing times, is a popular choice. For more sophisticated testing, choose an oven with the microprocessor based Protocol 3TM controller. It provides simple and flexible operation and can be paired with monitoring and data logging software for detailed reporting of oven process data.
Despatch has over 40 years of experience as the industry’s leading provider of carbon fiber manufacturing equipment and process technology solutions. Manufacturers have utilized our high-performance oxidation technology to produce the best quality and most uniform fiber, at the lowest cost. In the carbon fiber market, we offer everything from fully integrated carbon fiber manufacturing lines, to small benchtop fiber splicing ovens.
DFD INSTRUMENTS develop, design and manufacture the PAT adhesion testers, which are high precision pull-off type measuring instruments for adhesion and bond strength testing of all types of films, coatings, laminates, adhesives, metals and other materials. The adhesion testing technology, based on the concept Dynamic Force Distribution, ensures completely reproducible test results regardless of the testing circumstances like e.g. the shape of the substrate. Also, with this test equipment laboratory results are always comparable with field test results. The unique design of PAT ensures total test reliability: The test results are not operator-dependent. The testing machines are supplied with attachments ranging from the 1 kN micro-adhesion tester (typically for testing on very small components or areas) up to the fully automatic 80kN tester (mainly used for metal coatings). The equipment is either manually operated or fully automatic. Logging and storing of the test results can be done with the Windows-based digital testing module.
The equipment is fabricated by DFD in Norway (at Kristiansand; contact: firstname.lastname@example.org) and sold via DFD-UK.

Strain measurement for materials testing is our sole business at Epsilon.
Over thirty years of experience have gone into the development of our products. At our facility in Jackson, Wyoming, we design and build extensometers for testing around the world. Extensometers are available for testing almost all engineering materials including: elastomers, plastics, composites, metals, ceramics, geomaterials (e.g. rock, concrete, and asphalt), and biomaterials including bone. There are models for tiny and delicate samples, including relatively fine wire, up to massive metal samples and large rock cores. The huge variety of models covers nearly every type of test as well, including: tensile, compression, bend, fracture mechanics, and cyclic strain controlled tests like low cycle fatigue. Many of our extensometers are capable of relatively high frequency operation as well.

James Instruments Inc. specialises in Non-Destructive Testing equipment for concrete and other construction materials. Central to the improvement of the construction infrastructure are tools that evaluate the condition of existing construction. Destructive and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques are applied. Destructive tests can provide direct information, but are relatively expensive, time-consuming and cause damage to the structure. Destructive test results often cannot be evaluated using statistical approaches because the number of locations in the structure that can be tested without damage to the structure is limited. On the other hand, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques are relatively inexpensive to apply, and they can detect, localize, and characterize flaws and damage in concrete, wood and other construction material structures without leaving any undesirable discontinuities or causing damage to concrete members.
James Instruments Inc. is a leading manufacturer of non-destructive test equipment for construction materials. Specifically we design, manufacture and sell the most advanced equipment to test concrete, ceramic, wood, masonry, mortar, gypsum and other coarse grained materials. We supply the instruments that: measure strength, both compressive and tensile, locate rebar and other objects in concrete and masonry, determine density and analyze materials ultrasonically, analyze corrosion and, finally, determine moisture in concrete and other construction materials. And more. James Instruments Inc. — rugged, quality equipment for field use — backed by factory service and an ongoing program of research and development.
