It manufactures near-net-shape laminates from continuous fiber-reinforced glass or carbon fiber tapes. Structural composite components can be selectively reinforced to achieve excellent material properties in terms of deflection behavior, rigidity and impact strength. The tapes consist of glass, carbon or natural fibers based on a thermoplastic matrix and are rolled up on up to four spools. This makes it possible to mix different materials in a single tape layup and to lay tapes of different widths and thicknesses. Make the processing of thermoplastics faster and more efficient, even for mass production.
