As a subsidiary of US company ATS Inc., HDF specializes in the production of ducts and pipes for industrial applications.

About ATS

Since 1978, ATS Inc. has been manufacturing ducts and pipes for industrial applications such as semiconductor fume exhausts, pharmaceuticals, wastewater treatment, silicon wafers, solar cells, picture tubes, flat panel production and many others. www.atsduct.com

Fields of application and range of products
HDF works for demanding industrial sectors such as chemical processing, wastewater treatment, construction, civil engineering, offshore, marine, electroplating, electronics & semiconductors, printed circuit boards, food processing, pharmaceuticals and pulp & paper. HDF strictly complies with customer specifications. The company custom-engineers and fabricates all kinds of FRP products. Its product line includes chemical
Large filament winding

Manufacturing capabilities
Hua Dong uses filament winding, hand lay-up and spray-up manufacturing technologies. The manufacture of large FRP vessels requires suitable production equipment. The company has a mechanical helical winder that can produce 10-m-long components up to 5 m in diameter. In a joint venture with FEMech Engineering, Hua Dong has added a large-diameter filament winder to its production line. This state-of-the-art, computer-controlled winding machine is specifically designed for the manufacture of large-diameter fibreglass-reinforced plastic tanks. When fitted with appropriate mandrels, the computerized filament winder can manufacture tanks up to 22 m in diameter and to whatever height is practical. Fabrication is not restricted to HDF’s manufacturing facility. Depending on project requirements, the large-diameter filament winder can be used to
