TechTex INNOVATION Guide
Source Book of Fiber-Based Materials
Composistence supplies the automation technology for composite production. Since our company was established in 2009, we have developed several unique preforming technologies and the related design software, and also designed the related plants and installed them at our customers.
With our experienced teams and our extensive portfolio of technologies, we are now able to fulfil a wide range of needs:
Serial production of preforms for use in RTM or wet pressing processes:
The system lays dry fibre-based tapes to create 2D preform stacks, with customized geometries and fibre orientations up to sizes of 2.7 m x 2 m. Material requirement and cycle time are minimized; the installed plant processes up to 120 tonnes of carbon fibre tape per year.
The system can also be used for thermoplastic and prepreg tapes.
Production of pre-form stacks and blanks:
We supply samples, prototypes, and larger volumes, for example as substitutes for high-waste production processes based on NCF rovings or organic sheets.
