Carbon fiber composite automation takes center stage


At this year's JEC show, Dieffenbacher (Eppingen, Germany) will focus on progressive line concepts for the production of lightweight car body parts for the automotive industry.

From March 27th to 29th, 2012 at booth P32, Dieffenbacher, the technological leader in the field of fiber-reinforced plastics forming, will present the PreformCenter for fully-automated production of 3D preforms made of carbon fibers. The PreformCenter realizes short cycle times in preform production. From feeding the textile prepreg made from carbon fibers, via precision cutting and binder application, to the provision of the dry, dimensionally stable 3D preform, the complete process is fully-automated.
