Pre-preg composite parts are vacuum bagged and cured up to 500 degF in one of our 8’x6’x28’ or 8’x10’x8’ computer controlled oven with vacuum pressure and temperature data logging. ZAI’s facility contains a machine shop which includes CAM milling/turning equipment, multiple TIG/MIG welders and plasma cutter.
