Mikrosam at CAMX 2017

    At this year’s CAMX visitors and exhibitors will have an opportunity to learn more about Mikrosam’s advanced machines for composite parts production. At booth No. B27, in Orange County Convention Center, Mikrosam will welcome you to do presentation for the Automated Robot Type Machine for fiber/tape placement with multiple exchangeable AFP/ATL heads. The AFP/ATL Heads, Mikrosam latest developments, are configured to lay thermoplastic tape and tows, thermoset towpreg, dry tape, in widths from 1/8’’ up to 12’’. Another technology head, part of the robotic cell, is FW Head for manufacturing composite fiber-reinforced products by filament winding, wet and dry. The modern thermoplastic ATL head is equipped with laser heating device for temperature control of the placement process. The thermoset AFP head is equipped with infrared heating unit with control function. The Multi-head Robot type AFP/ATL machine, including MikroPlace software for programming, design and simulation, provides advantage of manufacturing advanced composite parts, from simple to very complex structures and shapes.

      Mikrosam will also present a custom-made prepreg Slitting and Rewinding equipment for production of wide width slit-tape prepreg used in ATL, and narrow width slit-tape prepreg machines for production of calibrated slit-tape prepreg with release film, used in the Automated Fiber Placement (AFP).
The calibrated slitting equipment is capable for slitting a large roll of prepreg material into narrow slit tape with width from 1/8’’ up to ½” and the wide prepreg slitting equipment is capable for production of slit tape in widths from 20mm up to 300mm.
Rewinding strategy offers option between step winding pattern (parallel winding) or pancake coil winding.

    Mikrosam will also feature fully automated line for high-volume production of LPG, CNG, HYDROGEN and other composite pressure vessels. Automated line integrates multi-spindle filament winding machines; automatic handling of liners and wound and cured tanks between numerous equipment units in the production process; sophisticated curing oven that accommodates the requirements of different resin system.
The winding machine is equipped with two winding carriages — one for winding the main composite structure and one for winding of the outer protective layer — enabling full continuous production of CNG tanks on the same machine in a single winding cycle. A total of 24 servomotor-controlled axes are integrated into the filament winding machine itself, which makes it one of the most advanced winding machines in the world. This production line is also unique in its flexibility to change production from one tank size to another, with all programs — mechanical and electrical parts — automatically adjusted to the new CNG tank size. The ability to make these changes and adjust the capacity of each equipment station quickly increases productivity of the overall production line.
     Mikrosam provides an open opportunity for discussion with potential interested parties, and trials of new materials and equipment in a confidential R&D environment.
