AZL gewinnt JEC Innovation Award 2019, Kategorie: „Industry & Equipment“

Das AZL ist Gewinner des JEC AWARD 2019 in der Kategorie „Industry & Equipment“ für die neue Maschinen-Entwicklung "Ultra-Fast Consolidator Machine“. Dieses innovative Maschinensystem ist das Ergebnis eines 18-monatigen AZL Joint Partner Projektes, das 2017-2018 von den Forschungspartnern AZL Aachen und Fraunhofer IPT Aachen in Zusammenarbeit mit industriellen Partnerunternehmen wie Conbility, Covestro, Engel, Evonik, Fagor Arrasate, Faurecia SE, Laserline, Mitsui Chemicals, Mubea Carbo Tech, Philips Photonics, SSDT und Toyota (in alphabetischer Reihenfolge) durchgeführt wurde.

Die neue UItra-Fast Consolidator Maschine ermöglicht sowohl hohe Flexibilität als auch die Massenproduktion von maßgeschneiderten thermoplastischen Laminaten mit reduziertem Ausschuss. Vollständig konsolidierte Mehrschichtlaminate mit unterschiedlichen Faserrichtungen und minimiertem Ausschuss (Tailored Blanks) können in Zykluszeiten unter 5 Sekunden hergestellt werden mit diesem einfach hoch skalierbaren Maschinenkonzept. Diese individualisierte Massenproduktion wird durch eine Kombination aus laserunterstütztem Tape Placement mit In-situ-Konsolidierung und einem Piece-Flow Prinzip erreicht, das in der Druckindustrie Stand der Technik ist, aber innerhalb der Composite Produktion noch nicht eingesetzt wurde.

Die erreichbare Produktivität ist durch dieses Prinzip auf über 500 kg/Stunde skalierbar, indem einzelne „Carrier“ durch mehrere Applikationsstationen bewegt werden, die wiederum mit mehreren Tapelege-Applikatoren ausgestattet sind. Die neue Maschine ist skalierbar: Mehrere Applikationsstationen können hinzugefügt werden, z.B. für jede Laminat-Schicht eine Station für die Massenproduktion oder für jede Faserrichtung eine Station mit einem Förder-Karussell: Hier werden die Carrier mehrfach durch die Applikationsstationen bewegt.

Die Kommerzialisierung des Systems durch einige der Industriepartner wird 2019 erfolgen. Der reale Maschinenaufbau wurde auf dem AZL-Stand der JEC Messe in Paris präsentiert.

Das „Follow-up“-Projekt hat begonnen und ist noch offen für die Aufnahme weiterer Industrie-Projektpartner. Im Rahmen dieses Follow-up Projektes werden insbesondere die Kommerzialisierung des Systems vorbereitet durch Langzeit-Tests sowie durch weitere Prozessoptimierungen mit unterschiedlichen Tape-Materialien.

CHOMARAT receives a JEC Innovation Award in Seoul with C-PLY™

At JEC Asia 2017 (1-3 November), the international textile group CHOMARAT will receive a JEC Innovation Award in the Sports & Leisure category for its C-PLY™ Hexagonal with visual & structural stitching. “CHOMARAT provided NEILPRYDE and COBRA with its C-PLY™ Non-Crimp Fabric (NCF) technology to help them manufacture an innovative windfoil board, and we are very proud to be rewarded with our partners”, says Pascal JOUBERT DES OUCHES, Sports Equipment Market Director at CHOMARAT.

C-PLYTM HEXAGONAL COMBINES NEW CARBON LOOK AND PERFORMANCE

At JEC Asia 2017 (1-3 November), the international textile group CHOMARAT will receive a JEC Innovation Award in the Sports & Leisure category for its C-PLY™ Hexagonal with visual & structural stitching. “CHOMARAT provided NEILPRYDE and COBRA with its C-PLY™ Non-Crimp Fabric (NCF) technology to help them manufacture an innovative windfoil board, and we are very proud to be rewarded with our partners”, says Pascal JOUBERT DES OUCHES, Sports Equipment Market Director at CHOMARAT.

C-PLYTM HEXAGONAL COMBINES NEW CARBON LOOK AND PERFORMANCE

The unusual stitching of this carbon multiaxial NCF reinforcement combines visual appeal and mechanical performance. C-PLY™ Hexagonal is an innovative carbon NCF with a unique stitching yarn designed to be visible within the resin and to capture resin colour pigments. The stitching yarn also improves fracture toughness compared to standard NCF.
“We researched the right stitching yarn among multiple options before coming up with a tailor-made yarn solution. C-PLY™ Hexagonal provides a unique honeycomb carbon design that appeals to end users”, adds Philippe SANIAL, R&T Director at CHOMARAT.

A WIDE RANGE, FROM AERONAUTICS AND AUTOMOTIVE TO SPORTS & LEISURE APPLICATIONS

Originally dedicated to the design of aerospace and automotive parts, the concept is now successfully applied to the sports & leisure sector. In this innovative windfoil board construction, tows are spread to create thin plies, which are then stitched with precise ±45° angles. The C-PLY™ NCF structure respects the fibre alignment and is optimized in terms of fibre angles and ply weights, thanks to unique spreading technology. The result is a leading-edge carbon NCF reinforcement allowing structural design benefits, premium surface quality and overall parts cost savings. “Bringing a new carbon visual signature for our high-performance C-PLY™ range of NCF is a key to boost retail sales in the whole sports & consumers product industry”, concludes Pascal JOUBERT DES OUCHES.
