Roth Composite Machinery from Steffenberg completes its range of products with Robot Filament Winding Machines. This technology implies that the fibre delivery eye - used for the fibre guide during the winding - is moved by means of an six-axis robot. The plants are particularly suitable for development purposes and for the small-series manufacture of products for light-weight applications.
Bernd Fischer, Sales Director of the company emphasises: “Due to the completion of our delivery program, we now meet every customer requirement with the appropriate solution as regards the filament winding technology. Our machines and production lines cover all manufacturing processes - from the development through small series up to mass production. Besides the Robot Filament Winding Machine, we also offer our machine Type 1-ECO for small to medium series and for manual workplaces as well as our Filament Winding Machine FWA 1 for big series and fully automated mass productions.” The first Robot Filament Winding Machines have already been sold and the deliveries will be carried out soon, added the Sales Director.
Regarding the new machine program, Roth Composite Machinery cooperates with a leading manufacturer of robots and combines the latest robot technology with its experience of more than 50 years in the field of fibre winding. Due to the standardisation of the fibre guide and the motion system of the winding axes, the manufacturer can offer an attractive price-performance ratio. The machine concepts stand out with their modular design as well as short delivery and installation periods. The plants are especially used in research institutes and universities. While a CNC machine (computerized numerical control machine) equipped with modern control technology is automatically manufacturing products in large quantities, the winding robot is suitable for small quantities being produced at low winding speeds.
