OUR SERVICES EXPLAINED
Configurations & Profit Simulations
In the GRP industry, you can´t establish or consolidate a plant on guesswork, without knowing the real GRP manufacturing output expressed in COST/METER, without which your risks of failure would be extremely high.
Our unique EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING ® METHOD relies on our in-house HIGHLY DEVELOPED ALGORITHM, that ensures risk-free factory/plant design.
Through our EFW Algorithm, you will be able to visualize and obtain various scenarios regarding profit estimation for different plant configurations and designs.
The PROFIT in the Filament Winding Industry needs to be evaluated by taking all the variables of the equation into account.
Though the EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING ® ALGORITHM you will be able to optimize all the stages of design, engineering, production, testing, and installation, maximizing your plant’s effectiveness and boosting your profit levels.

DESIGN & MANUFACTURING EFW LINES
In the composites business, it is of the utmost importance that the production line is built for the GRP product you want to produce, in line with the specific market needs.
You need to analyze your market requirements, study the exact design for your product, and only then tailor your production line based on that information.
The EFW LINES are tailor-made for your needs and offer the best support for our EFW method and includes all the equipment to:
- Reduce downtime’s, through the advanced machine set up;
- Reduce scrap levels, through our EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING® method;
- Reduce GRP pipe manufacturing costs, through precise control of raw material processing.
Manufacturing EFW Lines
We follow very strict quality control procedures in TOPFIBRA, because in our EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING LINES, each detail plays an important role for the final process optimization.
For this reason, we always insist on personally checking the key components of our high-performance Continuous Filament Winding (EFW LINES).
If you are planning to invest in this industry, our advice is to be very careful when choosing the manufacturing line, because the choice between high-performance equipment or standard equipment will strongly influence your return of investment.

INSTALLATION START UP & COMMISSIONING OF EFW LINES
Installation and Start Up
This service consists of a skilled supervision of the works relevant to the erection, start-up, and commissioning of the plant. A detailed schedule is agreed upon by the signature of the supply agreement.
These services are provided by a team of experts with the following qualifications:
- Mechanical Superintendent;
- Electrical & Automation Superintendent;
- Process & Chemical Engineer.
Some TOPFIBRA technicians have more than one qualification, and thus are able to perform different services during installation.
The Customer shall provide the necessary skilled personnel to be trained by our specialist, tools, lubricants for the first filling (grease, oil) as per the quantities agreed by the signature of the supply agreement. The training of the plant personnel will be organized in such a way so as to render it autonomous in operating the plant by the time of its commissioning.
Commissioning of EFW Lines
The commissioning service is the procedure aimed at demonstrating the operating characteristics of the Equipment, which includes set-up operations, preparation for production, and trial production as well as the effectiveness of the transferred Know-How.
TOPFIBRA will supply the Customer with a list of standards and specifications relevant to the technological process as well as all the software to integrate all the activities as per our EFW method.
We will also supply you with:
- Advice on the manufacturing techniques and optimum use of the Customer’s machinery and equipment following our EFW method;
- Advice on the execution of short and long-term testing on the product, the execution of Hydrostatic Design Basis (HDB) according to ASTM standards;
- Sourcing of raw materials supply;
- Technical audit and evaluation of the Customer’s plant and recommendations for improvement.

EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING CERTIFICATION
Effective Filament Winding Certification
To help companies solve their problems, we carefully analyzed the GRP market, and we created the EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING ® (EFW) method, the First Ever Integrated System to ensure profit-making in the Filament Winding industry.
Our EFFECTIVE FILAMENT WINDING ® method has been applied in the design and development of high-tech composite products destined to satellite and aerospace applications, as well as for fully composite, high-pressure vessels (300 bar) destined for the storage of natural gas, to name a few examples.
After the completion of the EFW implementation, TOPFIBRA will perform yearly audits to maintain the EFW certification, to assure that your products, services, and the integrated system meets the EFW requirements.
