Composite Handling System

Automated handling of composites

Innovative composition: gentle and reliable

composite components

In aircraft construction, the production of composite components is still dominated by manual labor. Composite parts are to be produced more economically in the future, for example by means of resin injection technology. The problem with this particular procedure so far was handling the dry, flexible prepregs. Up to now, the level of automation was limited due to manual process steps that have to be carefully carried out manually which in turn drive up production costs.

Broetje-Automation has succeeded in developing a sophisticated handling system for fiber-reinforced composite suitable for industrial production: thanks to gentle vacuum technology, the system reliably picks up and transports the sometimes highly sensitive and air-permeable technical textiles (e.g. carbon or glass fiber prepregs). With this innovative system, we put our main focus on maximum protection of the material to be picked up and utmost process reliability.

Composite Handling System

The fully PLC-controlled system combines many features that are currently unique on the market:

  • high energy efficiency
  • adaptability for various component geometries
  • optimized lightweight construction

Whether used manually or integrated into a fully-automated manufacturing cell: the compact, weight-saving design facilitates numerous applications. The optional fitting of positioning sensors ensures maximum manufacturing accuracy.
