JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Components made with Less Mass, Higher Stiffness & better damping make machines faster, more accurate, cut more metal and lighter. These machines will require smaller motors and will consume less energy.
CompoTech Plus Spol. s r.o. of the Czech Republic have been researching and developing manufacturing processes for Carbon Graphite Composite application to machine building for 5 years. The process for creating cellular graphite carbon fibre beams was augmented with damping technology in 2009 and since then the many problems of integrating the required systems, attachments, bearings and connections have been worked on to solve the particular requirements of individual applications.
There are many interdependent parts in contemporary automated machines and it is not easy to substitute a metal part for a composite part without setting off a whole chain reaction of other design changes. This is especially true when optimising the performance of a machine to take advantage of the much better properties of Carbon Graphite Damping Composite. Those Machine Builders who are fortunate enough to be in the position to take advantage of CompoTech Technology have found significant productivity advances.
