Composite - new processes for advanced materials
We develop and manufacture production equipment for the production and processing of fiber composites. This includes winding equipment for the production of fiber composite structures, measuring and testing equipment, manufacturing equipment for multi-material structures, consolidation equipment, bonding, testing and joining equipment.
Plant for the consolidation of multilayer glass fiber braids. The mold, which is manufactured using the lasercusing process, is heated and cooled in a very short time. This enables very efficient consolidation that is gentle on the material.
Robot-supported application of a 2-component adhesive for joining a CFRP torsion bar to an aluminum workpiece. In a single process step, the system applies both ends of the CFRP rod to the outer contour and two aluminum workpieces to the inner contour. The system is equipped with a safety-oriented carrier system.
Temperature control and loading system of a vertical plastic molding machine for the production of a sandwich structure. The loading system can temper various textile materials and foams and feed them to the multilayer processing mold. At the same time, IR emitters can be swivelled into the open mold to control the mold temperature.
Production of a fiber composite component for use in aerospace. Fiber coils with precise placement of the individual fibers are produced on the line. The final component consists of several winding layers which are separated from each other by vertical layers produced in a different process. By using different winding bodies including the corresponding software, different workpiece geometries can be produced with a very precise weight of the deposited fibers.
Measuring of CFRP structural components
Measurement of carbon fibre structural components for aerospace applications. The measurement is carried out automatically using a non-contact measuring method. The recorded values are compared with target values during the measuring process. This results in good or bad part information (ok / not ok) directly after the measuring process. Only usable workpieces enter the subsequent process. In addition, data is generated to optimise the upstream production process.
