The efficient laying system
The MULTILAYER enables very fast compilation of semi-finished fiber composites, thereby meeting the prerequisite for high component production rates. The machine with its compact footprint of 6,500 x 3,500 mm is both the starting point and the heart of the modern process chain for automated production of fiber composites. In conjunction with a consolidation unit, the MULTILAYER can be seamlessly integrated into a forming and injection molding process.
FILL MULTILAYER - The efficient laying system
The multilayer lays up both impregnated and dry fiber strips through aligned laying heads to form a layer.
With a maximum of. 16 layup units, the materials with a width of 50 mm are deposited on a vacuum table and fixed with ultrasonic joining units. The table with dimensions of 1,600 x 1,600 mm can be layed as required. Several components at the same time as well as different fiber directions are possible.
The system is programmed conveniently and efficiently via Fill's TAPE STUDIO - from the CAD geometry directly to the machine. For high system utilization, the changing from an empty to a loaded spool is fully automatic.
In this way, load-path-compatible, pre-fixed semi-finished products made of glass fiber or carbon with commercially available matrix materials such as PA, PP or PEEK. Also dry binderized materials for the RTM process can be laid.
