DYNAPIXEL: automated, reconfigurable molds

DYNAPIXEL: automated, reconfigurable molds
CAD-driven system cuts time for design iterations, enables cost-effective customized jigs and molded parts.

carbon composite robot gripper

Filament winding, reinvented
Robots and digital technology deliver speed plus larger, more complex parts, while generative 3D winding obviates mandrels and waste for automotive applications.

CIKONI automated preforming optimization using simulation and testing

Automated Preforming, Part 5: Holistic Quality Optimization
Simulation and testing key to integrated approach for optimization of automated preforming, offering time and cost savings as well as basis for automated quality inspection.

Preforming goes industrial: Part 2
Automated preforming isn’t only for 2D and 2.5D parts. Innovators are taking successful aim at building 3D preforms at production speeds.
