Composite Manufacturing

Izumi International has been a part of the carbon fiber industry since its earliest days, so we understand the business inside and out. We’ve been supplying carbon fiber production equipment for more than 35 years, including creels, carbonization furnaces, sizing equipment, tension roll stands, and take-up winders. We also supply the downstream equipment for various composite manufacturing processes, including pre-preg and pultrusion creels, filament winder tensioners, re-winders and respoolers, weft feeders for carbon fiber weaving, fiber tension sensors, and more.
