Tsudakoma Auto Lay-up Machine
Automatic Lay-up of Carbon Prepreg
- Automated tape layer most suitable for small to medium sized CFRP products
- High-rigid double-housing gantry column
- Compact lay-up head allows flat lay-up of the prepreg tape in a bsolutely any direction
- Tape cutting operation without stopping the lay-up using Tsudakoma's original Half Cutting Technology
- Automated composites solutions in pairing with the TPS Prepreg Slitter and the TDS Drape forming System
Based on the high accuracy positioning technology developed for machine tool products, a 0.5mm or less clearance between the prepreg tapes is achieved.
By sharing the reels of the TPS Prepreg Slitter, any roll which was slit with high accuracy can be used as it is in the TAL Auto Lay-up machine.
The prepreg tape is cut without stopping the lay-up using Tsudakoma's original Half Cutting Technology.
Based on the tension control technology developed for textile machines, the prepreg tape is supplied with the best tension.
