Composite Stacking System (Staxx)
Integrated System for Automated Lay-Up
In the manufacture of modern fiber composites, resin infusion technology is of special interest. This process involves making a lay-up preform of dry fiber semi-finished materials (such as carbon fiber or glass fiber mats) and subsequently impregnating it with resin and heat consolidating it in an oven.
The Composite Stacking System is our contribution to solving this task. The fixation system is conceived for automated operation in the production of stable, shift-free composite lay-up.
The performance features are:
- handling and positioning of pre-cut fiber material parts from a pick-up point to a deposit point
- mold tool.
The Composite Stacking System as well as the Composite Handling System and the 3D- Composite Handling System are equipped with our specifically developed vacuum grippers. The integrated individual vacuum gripper control allows the Composite Stacking System to automatically adapt to varying workpiece geometries.
3D Composite Handling System
All-Purpose Automated Handling System
For several years, we have been successfully developing handling systems for dry fiber composites that will be used in future products of the industries for aviation, automotive, and wind energy. Having brought our Composite Handling Systems to a high level of maturity, they have now reached industrial usability.
Materials are frequently required to be placed in or on three-dimensional forms. We have therefore provided our 3D Composite Handling System with 3D ability.
The 3D- Composite Handling System can be fully customized to any workpiece requirements. There are virtually no limits in terms of workpiece geometry.
