In use since mid-October, the tape laying system ordered by UNIST in 2019 was the first Firberforge order for Dieffenbacher in South Korea. The installation and commissioning of the tape laying system began in August 2020. The system was successfully accepted in October.

Prof. Young-Bin Park, Head of the UNIST Composites Research Center said:

“We develop new processes and applications, mainly for companies in the automotive and aerospace industries. We were looking for a highly precise and economical tape laying system and found it at Dieffenbacher. Fiberforge takes our research to a whole new level.”

“Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, which initially caused a slight delay in the start of construction work, the rest of the project went absolutely smoothly. Many thanks to the entire Dieffenbacher team for the fast and uncomplicated installation and commissioning despite the difficult conditions. We were excited to begin using the Fiberforge for our research in mid-October.”

The UNIST project underscores the versatility of the Fiberforge technology. The fastest tape laying system is suitable for both the mass production of lightweight components and research for new processes. More than 10 systems are in use in production worldwide. In addition to UNIST, seven other research institutes are equipped with Fiberforge technology.
