    CANNON USA @ JEC Americas 2012


The Cannon Group’s North American branch (www.cannonusa.com) will be present at the JEC Americas Composites Show and Conference 2012 held in Boston, Massachusetts, USA from November 7th to 9th 2012

Cannon's latest developments in the fields of Composites, Polyurethane and Thermoforming technologies will be on show in Boston’s Convention & Exhibition Center, presented by an international team of specialists:

The most complete range of Epoxy infusion and injection technologies and tools

  • ESTRIM (Epoxy STructural Reaction Injection Moulding) technology, for the replacement of conventional, slow RTM process with fast-demoulding high-pressure injection of Epoxy resin formulations. This technology is now available in two new versions, the Spray (SL) and Liquid Laydown (LL), for different, more advanced applications of large Composite parts in the Automotive industry.
  • The E-System, a three-component high-pressure dosing unit for Epoxies, now available in its second, enhanced version. 
  • The range of automatic Preformers for the preparation of Carbon and Glass fiber preforms used for resin impregnation and injection technologies.
  • The dedicated molds for Composites
  • A complete range of handling and manipulation systems for dry or wet preforms and moulded parts.

A new compression molding solution for Thermoplastic Composites, including presses up to 3,500 ton, ovens and handling systems, for light-weight compression-molded reinforced plastic sheets - SMC, GMT, LWRT (Low Weight Reinforced Thermoplastics) - and a new generation of Composites

Co-injection and Reinforced spray technologies for Polyurethanes, for an increasingly wider number of industrial applications.

Automated, industrialised technologies for the production of large composites parts destined to the aeronautics and wind generation markets:

  • The Epoxy DX dosing machines for infusion in the wind blades,
  • Dosing machines for Polyurethane inserts, to replace the use of balsa wood or Polystyrene cut blocks,
  • Dosing machines and presses for DCPD (DiCycloPentaDiene) resins to produce large, thin, high-modulus structural parts without glass reinforcement,
  • Tailor-made handling and assembling equipment for large parts.

The latest models of Industrial Thermoformers , equipped with halogen heating lamps, computerised zone-control of heating, patented adjustable plate systems for minimum set up time and elimination of reduction plates.

The world's widest network of Service Centres for the Composites and PUR processors.

At the Cannon booth our experienced, domestic and international staff will assist you for your Composites, Polyurethane and Thermoforming processing needs!

  • Cannon @ 2016 Energy Forum in Beijing


    A Sino-Italian Energy Forum focused on district heating technologies has been held in Beijing on April 8, 2016. Organised by a group of Italian multi-utility Companies – IREN, Utilitalia, A2A and Hera – in cooperation with the Chinese District Heating Association (CDHA) and under the patronage of the Italian and the Chinese Ministries of the Environment, the Italian Foreign Minister and the Italian Embassy in Beijing, the Forum conveyed to a panel of Chinese municipal multi-utility companies the Italian state-of-the-art solutions and technologies for the centralised production of heat and its capillary distribution in highly-populated urban areas.

    The Cannon Group’s Companies active in the field of Energy Production were invited to present their latest experiences and achievements in this highly topical theme.
