ibrotape UD tapes are generally used in tape laying process to manufacture high performance lightweigt components.The winding process is particularly suitable for the production of complex three-dimensional components such as tanks, pipes, aircraft part productions.
Fibrotape UD tapes allow simple heating and forming process due to gtheir high quality preconsolidation to produce many competitive automative parts.
First at the thermoforming process, the foil is heated on one or both sides (depending on the process) in a heating station with a radiant heater. The foil becomes soft and to prevent sagging, it is sightly strechted and held in place with the aid of a clamping frame. If you thermoform with a hydraulic heating press, the foil moves into a pressing tool with a positive and negative stamp and is pressed into the respective mould. After that the component is demoulded and cooled. Finally, the tool is ready and you can add holes or insert assembly parts.
Example: Composite Bulkheads
Fibrotape combiation with glass and carbon fibers with the same matrix system and their injection and flow molding processes also offers the excellent option of using both lightweight materials and
