Tailor-Made, High-Volume Production Thermoplastic Composites from ENGEL AUSTRIA

May 18 2020

ENGEL AUSTRIA is one of the winners of the JEC Innovation Awards 2020. Together with its partner FILL, the machine manufacturer and system solutions provider has received the award in the category Process for the development of a production line for the manufacture of tailor-made composite blanks. With its high degree of integration and automation, the innovative solution combines highest quality with great cost effectiveness and paves the way for the high-volume production of thermoplastic composite parts.

Tailor-made composite blanks help to optimally leverage the lightweight design potential of parts. In order to efficiently make these semi-finished products from both glass and carbon fiber reinforced tapes with a thermoplastic matrix, ENGEL combines a tape laying cell with a consolidation unit in a highly automated production line. The integrated process can turn out fit-for-purpose blanks with 15 to 30 tapes in one-minute intervals. It was this high level of production efficiency that convinced the international jury.
