Roth Composite Machinery (Steffenberg, Germany) is emphasizing its filament winding and prepreg abilities, with specific focus on its ROTHAWIN technology, robot winding and its Type 1-ECO machine. ROTHAWIN technology is said to accelerate winding processes by five to 10 times, making it suitable for series and mass production of pressure vessels in the automotive industry. The company also presents its new machine concepts for robotic filament winding processes, designed for research and development and for small-series production. The Type 1-ECO machine was developed as a standardized version of the gantry-type filament winding machine, an entry for the company into the serial production of filament winding machines. The machine is equipped with essential basic functions and offers robustness, durability and precision. It has a modular concept of up to four spindles, up to four winding axes and two length variants (one ranging to 4,000 mm and the other ranging to 10,000 mm). Booth BB50.

  • 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.
