If you missed the last JEC Europe 2012 in Paris here is the opportunity to purchase the proceedings of the Automation Forum in CD ROM format.

 

Reduce cost, increase throughput and reduce scrap in composite part manufacturing:

 

Key Focus

  • Novative processes make thermoset and thermoplastic composites affordable for all markets
  • Automated Fiber Placement of thermoplastics and new fiber placement/stitching processes
  • Developments in the use of robots and overall composites industry trends in automation

 

 

Automation (Reduce cost, increase throughput and reduce scrap in composite part manufacturing)

 

  • Novative processes make thermoset and thermoplastic composites affordable for all markets
  • Automated Fiber Placement of thermoplastics and new fiber placement/stitching processes
  • Developments in the use of robots and overall composites industry trends in automation

 

 

Automation is progressively gaining ground within composites. Lowering the cost of automated machines and increasing their flexibility is key to allowing a wider range of companies and their products to reap the benefits of automation. In parallel, there is continued technical development in ways of accurately placing fibers where they need to be and of stabilizing their position via stitching if multi-axial fabrics are used. Coming from the robot industry, there are developments in the design and use of robots to increase composite process productivity. There are general trends in the way automation is used in composites manufacturing across many end use areas.
