JEC Europe 2014 - Dieffenbacher has developed a fully automated production line for the production of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic components using the high pressure resin transfer molding process (HP-RTM).

Dieffenbacher has developed a fully automated production line for the production of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic components using the high pressure resin transfer molding process (HP-RTM). As part of a complete production line in the High pressure RTM process, the PreformCenter can be configured for use in both large and small-scale series production. In addition to preform production, the entire HP-RTM production line also includes the compression process and the related steps for reworking the finished lightweight components. Dieffenbacher delivers the HP-RTM line such that it is ready for immediate use.

D-SMC Line
Just-In-Time Manufacturing of Semi-Finished Parts
Dieffenbacher has developed a fully automated production line for fiber-reinforced thermosetting plastics that helps avoid the costs of storing semi-finished parts as well as the related logistics. As part of the direct process for SMC, the semi-finished SMC part is manufactured immediately before being sent on for further processing.

Technology for Long Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastics Plants
Dieffenbacher has developed new line technology that allows components to be manufactured from long fiber-reinforced thermoplastics via direct compounding (known as LFT-D) with additional reinforcement provided by unidirectional fiber tape (UD fiber placement).
