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.
Professor and Architect Mark Goulthorpe, of the MIT Department of Architecture, confirmed as guest keynote speaker for the Future of Composites in Construction.
At the ZLP Center for Lightweight Production Technology in Stade, Germany, Reis has delivered a preform system which enables the fully automatic process chain of the EVo project (net-shaped volume parts) for manufacture of complex carbon fiber reinforced polymer components in high quantities.
Reis is a research institute within the structure of the DLR German National Center for Aerospace, Energy and Transportation Research.
Reis delivers the system technology for automation of the process steps draping, layer structure, quality assurance, consolidation, and fine trimming, and establishes with robots the connection to the preceding material provision and the following Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) process. Furthermore, the connection of the robots to an offline programming system is included in the scope of delivery.
Especially the wide product range of the Reis robot series with different kinematics allows an optimum system concept for this complex application.
Long years of experience in the field of system technology, as well as extensive competence in processing of fiber reinforced plastics, distinguish Reis Robotics as an ideal partner for the automated production of composite components.
About Reis RoboticsReis Robotics is an innovative company leading in robot technology and system integration.The Reis Robotics group with international activities has its headquarters in Obernburg, Germany and is a market leader for automation systems with Reis robots as well as with robots of other manufacturers. Reis Robotics designs and delivers complete automation systems from one source and today is one of the most important integrators for large and complex automation systems in all major industry sectors. Besides special robots, the wide product range also includes many automation components for the welding, laser processing and foundry market segments. The company’s success since 1957 is based on the thorough knowhow in planning and execution of turnkey automation systems. In conjunction with in-depth experience in various machining processes (conventional and laser welding/cutting, foundry, handling, coating, assembling, and many more), Reis also offers the necessary services for the solution of automation tasks in these application fields.
