The ongoing effects of the pandemic mean the trade fair will take place virtually from June 1-2, 2021. On the digital platform, Roth Composite Machinery will present an innovative machine concept for the large-scale pressure vessel production by using the filament winding process.
“By the development of the Rothawin technology, we have successfully introduced into the market a technology speeding up filament winding processes by a multiple,” stated Dr Andreas Reimann, general manager of Roth Composite Machinery. “Now we are presenting a further innovation on the occasion of the JEC Composites Connect. Our new machine concept for the large-scale production of pressure vessels, particularly for the automotive industry, achieves double productivity compared with our current world-leading standard.
“While the production lines based on the Rothawin technology are aimed at the manufacture of small compact vessels primarily used for cars, the new gantry machine generation addresses the highly productive manufacture of vessels for commercial vehicles and trucks.”
A particularly strong frame construction keeps the dynamic of the accelerated production process with an increased quantity of laid fibres under control with ease. The new Filament Winding Plant of Roth Composite Machinery is available with three, four or five spindles. It is suitable for production processes for wet, dry or Towpreg winding procedures by using all common types of fibres, especially carbon and glass fibres.
During the presentation of its innovative machine concept at the JEC Composites Connect, the company will introduce the performance potential of Roth’s Filament Winding production line. The digital platform of the trade fair offers virtual booths, online meetings as well as a conference programme.
