MDW 100/2

Mikrosam’s  lab scale drum prepreg making equipment utilizes the concept of impregnating carbon fiber tape between the two resin films. The carbon fibers are placed on the main drum with precise 90 degree winding. The consolidation of the prepreg tape is performed by controlled heating/cooling processes and simultaneously applying pressure through the pressure roller. This equipment is excellent solution for the laboratories and research institutes that are developing and testing new prepreg types.
