Patching (laying of individual geometries appropriately for the load path) is a very effective method for generating waste-optimized, high-performance composites.

The Concept

The patching process begins with cutting the individual parts to size, mostly on cutter tables. After measurement, handling robots transfer the parts to the correct position on the component. Depending on the material, an interim consolidation may then be required. This process technology is applied mostly in the prepreg area, but it can also be used for other materials. 

Along with labeling (application of adhesive or protective films), data tracking and quality assurance are also fully integrated in the process. 

Features

  • High level of automation - low manpower requirements 

  • Short changeover times due to interchangeable grippers. 

  • Professional process data tracking 

  • Space-optimized layout design
