In cooperation with Franhofer IPT, Conbility GmbH makes more than 30 years of expertise in special machine development of tape placement systems commercially available. Conbility offers two different tape processing systems available in different configurations. The company offers technical support services and performs maintenance as well as trainings for industrial custimers for the new technologies, which have been developed by the Fraunhofer IPT and are now distributed by Conbility.PrePro 2D: Automated production of flat UD laminatesThe PrePro 2D machine system (Fig.1) allows for the automated tailored tape placement of UD laminates and which can be used for subsequent thermoforming or as stiffening structures in injection molding processes. The machine comprises a rotating and translational table which is moved relatively to the applicator station. The table is scalable according to the requirements of customers. Standard table diameters are 1200 mm or 2000 mm. The applicator station can be equipped with a single or with multiple spool applicators. Because of the large process area, a 9 kW IR heater is used for the in-situ-consolidation process.PrePro 3D: Modular tape applicator with VSCEL technologyThe PrePro 3D applicator (Fig. 2) is available as a stand-alone system and can be modularly integrated into existing robot or machine systems as a retrofit solution. In contrast to the PrePro-2D system, this system can be used for different materials. It is suitable for dry-fiber placement in the manufacture of three-dimensional preforms as well as for laser-assisted thermoplastic tape placement and even for the manufacture of complex 3D structures and wound components. For easy integration into existing systems, the system has a decentralized process control system that communicates with the machine system via standard interfaces and ensures a particularly versatile application.Conbility provides the single applicator as well as a turn-key ready systems.
