Kent Automation (Kent, OH, US) is featuring its line of pultrusion systems that feature the ServoPul system. ServoPul offers completely non-hydraulic servomotor and drive technology to control pulling and clamping forces during pultrusion, and to register monitored feedback to the operating system. Kent notes that, with servomotors, challenges common with standard hydraulic systems are eliminated; further, pulling and clamping forces are said to be more precisely controlled using a servo/ball screw combination with zero backlash. Other features of Kent pultruders include touchscreen control, side or top die location, safety interlocks, flying cut-off saws, and more. Booth U52.

    Recycling of carbon fiber, glass fiber and — at last — resins, is growing as new players enter the space.

  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.
