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.
JEC Europe 2015 - At JEC Europe 2015, the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT) presents several innovations in the field of fibre placement and thermoplastic tape processing.
The Multi-Material-Head makes it possible to process thermoplastic tapes, thermoset prepregs and dry fibre rovings with binder within one single system. This tape and fibre placement head, which won a JEC Europe Innovation Award last year, is now presented as a ready-for-the-market solution that can be purchased including the complete equipment for tape and prepreg placement and winding, such as robot, liner and laser protection.To enable the resource-efficient production of lightweight components, the Fraunhofer IPT and its partners from the E-Profit BMBF-funded project have developed an automated system that includes a process chain for the manufacturing of load- and waste-optimized tailored composite blanks. This highly integrated process chain is designed for large-scale series production in the automotive and transport sectors. The system allows the high-volume production of tailored composite blanks that can be subsequently processed by in-situ forming, trimming and functionalization.
