Highest productivity that ends up into the fastest return of the investment
The TORRESFIBERLAYUP is an automated fiber placement machine designed to provide the highest productivity when it comes to fabricate high contour carbon fiber aircraft components, although a 2Dfor high speed flat lamination, providing huge scrap material savings is also available.
Its unique tow cutting and adding system at full speed design concept allows the machine to cut, add and lay down consistently and accurately at 60mpm, ensuring the highest productivity fiber placement solution available in the market.
It is a modular concept system that allows the design and delivery of virtually any configuration of machine in terms of number of tows, (1/8'', 1/4'', or 1/2'' ) as well as the tow width and machine size.
Also, the machine can be delivered under different architectures, Gantry Type, Column Type, with or without a Head Stock - Tail Stock system for revolution parts, etc.
A highly advanced and sophisticated programming /simulation software package, TORFIBER, allows the programmer to generate, simulate and analyse the part program, within a CATIA environment, before the MTORRES provided postprocessor generates the CNC program.
As an option, the machine may include a set of Automatic Tow Splicing Systems, one per tow, set up at the creel house, to boost even further the productivity of the TORRESFIBERLAYUP. It works by automatically splicing the end of a spool to the beginning of the next spool remarkably reducing unproductive time and saving recurring scrap cost.
Applications include manufacturing of flat, mild curvature as well as high contour carbon fiber components.
