UD-Tape conversion – New Trends and standards in the tailored blank manufacturing
Themes: Process-Tech Forum

Continuous Fiber reinforced composites have a large potential in modern automobile and related applications, especial for structural composites.
By the use of UD tapes for local reinforcements, it is easily possible to place them alongside the load passes of the component to utilize its full strength potential as well as to increase the impact resistance where they are really need to carry the load
The automotive industry with its high requirements for high-volume and quality production requires a highly efficient production process with short cycle times.
Dieffenbacher developed and introduced recently the new and state of the art Tailored Blank Line that copes all the requirements and therefore offers the benefit of a large-scale production in a precise, fast and economical way for the production of tailored fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites.
The New Fiberforge tape laying system and the new Fibercon vacuum-assisted consolidation system are the core of the Tailored Blank Line.
Using Fiberforge and Fibercon together with downstream systems, such as the handling robot and forming press, more than one million parts can be manufactured per year on just one line.
