Successful project cooperations will be presented at Techtextil from 21-24 June 2022
The ARWeS roving changing system enables the reproducible connection of the reinforcing fibres to each other in fully automatic plant operation without interrupting the production processes. The pneumatic splicing process swirls two rovings together using compressed air and cuts off the protruding ends at the same time. It is suitable for all available reinforcing fibres (e.g. glass, basalt, carbon fibres). The narrow shape of the splice connection is ideal for downstream processing and has a higher tensile strength compared to other joining technologies. An animation on the stand illustrates the basic principle and the advantages.
The successful project cooperation with Heberlein will be continued for the further optimisation of the process sequences and the determination of relevant process parameters.
The new process for the highly flexible, continuous production of HYROV hybrid rovings, which can be produced more cost-effectively, more effectively and with higher quality than with the conventional commingling process, will also be presented in Frankfurt/Main.
The close cooperation between Cetex, The Filament Factory GmbH and thermoPre ENGINEERING GmbH for the development, production and marketing of HYROV hybrid rovings makes it possible not only to supply the end user with the materials adapted to the application, but also to offer the engineering for later component applications including the prototyping of the FRP components.
Both projects were funded by the BMWi as part of the INNO-KOM programme.
We look forward to seeing you at our stand 11.1, D 40!
