Scalable Samba systems now ready for prepreg

Samba Pro in action. © Cevotec Munich-based Patch Placement specialist Cevotec has made scalable Samba Series systems ready for processing thermoset prepreg material, bringing along all the benefits of Fibre Patch Placement technology. Automated fibre layup of CFRP components with challenging 3D geometries is now possible in all production environments from high-volume production to flexible batch production or prototyping. The company will be offering first-hand information about the technology at the JEC World 2018, from 6-8 March in Paris.

Like all Samba Series cells, Samba Series Prepreg also feature a variable and contamination free laser cutting, precise camera-controlled fibre placement and the fast and easy tool change system. Specific are a cooled material storage and an energy-efficient photonic heating of patches. For the integral production of highly complex-shaped parts, Samba Series systems operate with up to 12 robot axes and a flexible patch gripper to precisely place defined fibre patches on a 3D mould mounted on a tool manipulation robot.
