At JEC World Composites Show 2017 in Paris, Cevotec presents the first industrial solution for the automated production of complex carbon composites in high volumes
As a world premiere at JEC World Composites Show 2017 in Paris, Cevotec presents the first industrial solution for the automated production of complex carbon composites in high volumes. The novel system is based on the Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) technology which enables the fully automated production of complex 3D composite geometries - in a continuous process from digital design to the final fiber product.
The high-tech production system SAMBA allows for the precise orientation of each patch to achieve a perfect fiber architecture. Strength and stiffness can be increased by up to 150%. While SAMBA's two robots precisely position the fiber patches, industrial cameras inspect and document the quality of each patch in a continuous quality report. Thanks to additive manufacturing, the system uses up to 30% less of the fiber material, as patches are only placed where necessary. In addition SAMBA significantly reduces scrap and eliminates additional forming processes through direct 3D net-shape preforming.
The first live demonstration of SAMBA and ARIST STUDIO will be at JEC World 2017 on Tuesday, 14 March 2017 at 14:00 at booth S83 in Hall 6. More presentations follow on each day of the trade show.
