Nov. 2015: Laser Cutting & Signed wings

Laser Cutting & Signed wings

"Setting Future Standards" is not just a slogan.

We at APCO are happy to announce that we have further upgraded our production facility with state of the art Laser cutting technology. We have added a new Laser Cutting Custom Machine 10[m] long and 2[m] wide.
This new laser cutter will allow us greater flexibility and faster delivery times in the very near future. The advantages of this laser are not limited to time saving, but also accuracy in cutting, which translates to a cleaner, better performing wing.

The options that have now opened to us with this new laser cutting machine have encouraged us to start a new program in APCO:

"Personally Signed Wings"! - with every new wing, we will offer the option of a personal signature which we will laser cut and apply to your new wing.

LIFT EU, a reflex wing specifically designed for tandem trikes! The LIFT EU offers an additional option for tandem trike pilots who prefer a reflex-profile wing, with higher top speed and greater resistance to deflation. The LIFT EU is based on the LIFT paramotor wing - our best-selling wing, and shares many similarities with it. A number of pre-production wings have been built ahead and tested by a few of our dealers and we are launching it now after having firm, positive feedback.
Finally now we are in position to offer a full range of tandem wings for European trikes as well as American PPC machines.
