KARL MAYER’s New BIAXTRONIC CO at the RWTH Aachen University for Innovative Semi-Finished Fiber Products

February 08 (2021

A BIAXTRONIC CO was delivered to Aachen at the end of 2020. It had been completely assembled and functionally tested in advance at KARL MAYER Technische Textilien in Chemnitz, since it is a tailor-made model.

BIAXTRONIC CO is predestined for the production of biaxial non-crimp fabrics and composite structures, and was equipped with specific features for its use at the ITA. One of these is KAMCOS 2. The latest generation of KARL MAYER’s Command System offers an ethernet interface for integrating the machine into an existing network. This enables participation in future-oriented research topics such as Industry 4.0, inline quality control, sociology and process chain networking.

The BIAXTRONIC CO for the research facility was also equipped with an EL pattern drive. Electronic guide bar control and the ability to vary process parameters inline contribute to the production of locally adapted, tailor-made textiles. Other details that favored the BIAXTRONIC CO are a working width that meets standard industrial practices and the possibility of feeding basic substrates, such as nonwovens in a standard process.

With BIAXTRONIC CO, ITA researchers want to further develop and produce reinforcement structures for concrete matrices in particular. Projects for filtration technology can also be implemented. The production of unidirectional (UD) non-crimp fabrics for fiber composites and of flat warp knitted fabrics for heating textiles, which can be used in the mobility sector, are also conceivable. In addition to research and development work, the ITA has its sights set on production practice using the BIAXTRONIC CO.
