Lay-up equipment

 

The most basic and oldest fabrication method for thermoset composites is hand lay-up, which typically consists of laying dry fabric layers or prepreg plies by hand onto a tool to form a laminate stack.  In order to achieve higher production rates corresponding to the foreseen ramp-up, we totally re-examined this production process for woven materials and improved the existing preforming stage by introducing intelligent automation to this process.

We can supply automatic preform lines with conveyor or robot systems.
