Fabric Manufacturing Expertise
At Peckham, we’re all about working with fabric – cutting, sewing, assembly, product integration, you name it – fabric is in our DNA. A long-time supplier to the military, our processes are bullet-proof. Ditto for automotive.
We’re seeing fabric being used increasingly as a light-weight substitute for other products such as metals and plastics. Here are a few we’ve seen –
- Fabric wire harnesses (replace rubber or plastic)
- Fabric solar panels (replace ceramics, metals, plastics)
- Fabric electronics (replace hard chip boards)
- Fabric air carrying tubes (replace aluminum, rubber, plastics)
- Fabric fuel carrying tubes (replace aluminum, rubbers)
As the technology in fabric evolves, we’re seeing new applications for fabric every day – in industries as diverse as architecture, construction, military, automotive, alternative energy, aerospace, transportation, and many more.
