Long Business Description:

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.

Solar cell materials can be assessed by spectral and temporal fluorescence spectroscopy using the products offered by Edinburgh Instruments.
The energy received on earth by the sun in one hour is equivalent to the energy consumed by the world in a year. Photovoltaic solar cells convert this solar energy into electricity in a sustainable way compared to fossil fuels.
Solar cells can be made of semiconductors, polymers, dyes and phosphors. Organic as well as organic/inorganic approaches are currently followed.
Research is focussed on materials that absorb a wider part of the solar spectrum, while improving the electronic transport at a low cost. In addition, charge mobility and stability are challenges especially for dye-sensitised and perovskite solar cells.

The fluorescence emission, quantum yield and lifetime of nanoscale materials can be characterised with a range of Edinburgh Instruments’ products.
Nanoscale materials such as quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles and nanostructures exhibit strong spatial confinement upon photo-excitation and tuneable emission, which makes them extremely useful in photonic applications.
Emission at desired wavelengths has been widely demonstrated in the past, however research is currently focused on improving the quantum yield as well as the photo-stability and chemical stability for example in core/shell geometries. New materials are investigated in the zeroth dimension in dots, the second in sheets such as graphene, or the third in nanostructures, whereas applications from optoelectronic devices to medical diagnostics and quantum computing.
