JEC World 2018: Efficient production of composite components
DOPAG will present its complete range of metering systems for the production of composite materials at JEC, the world’s largest composites exhibition, from 6-8 March in Paris.
The applications involved in the production of composite components are complex. For this reason, it is vital that the metering and mixing technology used in the production process ensure absolute precision and reliability. DOPAG developed special metering systems for the production of composite components, which enable optimal processing of these complex materials and also meet the demand for increasing automation. The metering technology manufacturer will present its complete range of systems at the world’s leading exhibition for the composites industry – JEC World 2018 in Paris.
Intelligent metering systems for all composite applications
As the leading supplier on the market, DOPAG provides metering systems for all lightweight composite applications. This includes the automotive, aviation and space industries, as well as the construction of wind turbines. DOPAG’s eldomix and compomix metering systems are setting standards in the production of fibre composite components in RTM, pultrusion and winding processes. Both systems reliably process materials such as polyurethane or epoxy resin, while the gear pump technology ensures precise metering. Thanks to their comprehensive configuration options, eldomix and compomix can easily be used for a wide range of applications across all lightweight construction industries.
DOPAG’s coredis metering system is predominantly used in aircraft construction. It uniformly fills sandwich panels featuring a honeycomb core with low-density materials. The open edges of the panels are thus sufficiently protected from environmental influences. This enables the parts of the honeycomb structure to be reinforced, and subsequently machined, in order to accommodate inserts such as door hinges. These types of honeycomb panels are particularly used in toilet walls, side panels, kitchen structures and floor panels in shipbuilding and aircraft interiors.
Benefiting from automated solutions
DOPAG offers automated solutions for all composites applications, which enable significant improvements in relation to processing time, reproducibility and material usage. Customers can thus benefit from lower time requirements, increased productivity and reduced production costs in the case of higher quantities.
DOPAG expands its composites team
DOPAG has been offering solutions for all applications relating to the production of fibre composite components for decades. The company works closely with prestigious companies from the lightweight construction industry as well as with material manufacturers, and can thus support its customers with its comprehensive expertise. DOPAG is currently adding new experts to its composites team. This will ensure optimal customer support throughout the entire process chain, from consultation, planning and production through to commissioning, maintenance and repair. The company will therefore be able to reliably meet all customer demands throughout the world.
