The turnkey project integrates four filament winding machines, two large ovens and multiple robotic lines and buffering stations to produce 60,000 tanks per year.
Mikrosam is proud to celebrate the commissioning of its latest automated production line by JSC DPO Plastik (Dzerzhinsk, Russia). The turnkey system features four multi-spindle filament winding machines, designed to build tanks between 40 and 350 liters in capacity for storing compressed natural gas (CNG) and hydrogen gas. The lines use glass and carbon fiber in towpreg or wet winding. Designed to produce more than 60,000 tanks annually, this production system is reportedly the largest in the automotive industry to date.
“Braving the pandemic and global supply issues, our engineers commissioned our most complex project yet,” says Dimitar Bogdanoski, sales manager at Mikrosam DOO. In addition to the filament winders, the automated system includes two large continuous curing (CC) ovens, multiple lines and buffer stations and an integrated handling system with two robots.
