Automated Fiber Placement (AFP)

Upload

Tape :

 

- Up to 1 inch

  (Customized tape applicateur  

   width possible)

 

Material :

 

- Dry fiber

- Prepreg

- Thermoplastic

    

Speed :

 

- Prepreg : 1 m/sec

- Dry Fiber : 500 mm/sec

- Thermoplastic : 250 mm/sec

The plug-and-produce installation methodology promotes same day installation and calibration. 

The AFP-XS utilizes the robots parent code, resulting in a minimal learning curve. This allows the ends-user to begin producing parts upon installation.
