Fabrics, tapes, organic sheets: Dornier presents machines and system solutions for efficiently manufacturing semi-finished composite fibre products at JEC
Dornier will present its Composite Systems business unit at the JEC World composite materials exhibition in Paris from March 6. - 8. The machine builder continues to establish its reputation as a system partner for component, fibre and polymer manufacturers for all matters relating to machinery and systems for manufacturing semi-finished textiles made from high-performance fibres.
Handcrafted single-item production, small lots – these keywords still characterize the production of fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) in all sectors which count on lightweight, fibre-based structural applications, including aerospace, automobile construction, machine building and even architecture.
This is why textile research institutions and sector enterprises are pushing to develop reliable, economical processes for manufacturing FRP components on an industrial scale. Their efforts are concentrated on new developments and advancements of machinery used to make semi-finished goods from carbon, glass, aramide and basalt for composites.
For more than 40 years, weaving machines by Lindauer Dornier GmbH are the benchmark for processing high-performance fibres like carbon. But with the innovations of its Composite Systems® division the highly respected family business now also covers a large portion of the semi-finished goods production spectrum for FRP components as well.
Josef Klingele, Product Manager for Dornier Composite Systems said, “At the JEC, we are going to demonstrate that the expertise we have acquired over decades in building machinery for producing semi-finished goods has also been applied to production equipment.”
