Our technology is particularly suitable for large-area components in structural applications; these can be highly three-dimensional, for example in vehicles, wind turbines, aerospace, machinery and the sport and leisure industries.
We can offer a high level of flexibility in fiber layup that you can utilize to exploit the lightweight potential of fiber-reinforced composites. Features are:
|– 360° fiber orientation
– local reinforcements for force application
– the combination of different continuous fibres (carbon, glass)
– direct three-dimensional preforming
Our process is ideal for high production volumes. The break even volume that will reduce your cost depends on your application. Typically, our process is more cost-effective than others starting from production volumes of several hundred parts.
A base machine can layup preforms of 1 m² surface area with a layup rate of up to 30 kg per hour. Thus a preform weighing 1 kg can be produced in a cycle time of 2 minutes.
We can customize machinery for your special needs (e.g. components for the rotor blades of wind turbines) that process a higher number of rovings simultaneously and thus achieve significantly higher layup rates. Please contact us to discuss your application!
