The new machine can manufacture organosheets. Multi-layer, fully impregnated and reinforced fiber reinforced composite material. Ensinger said in a press release that in addition to its existing high temperature application product range, new machines can be used to produce large quantities of thermoplastic composites at low temperatures.
With a working width of up to 1,800 mm, the double belt press also processes unidirectional (UD) materials, UD cross-ply materials, laminates, and sandwich laminates using a variety of core materials such as foam and honeycomb. This means that different combinations of textile and polymer matrix materials can be achieved, such as carbon, glass, aramid, and natural fibers. As impregnation technology, powder scattering and film impregnation are now possible. Customized technical and economic solutions are ideal for customer products in the automotive sector and other industrial sectors. In addition, Ensinger can also process contract jobs.
Ensinger is expanding its portfolio in the field of thermoplastic composites. A double belt press (DBP) has been put into operation at the Cham production site. This system enables efficient production of a variety of fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites. The German company manufactures engineering and high performance composites.
Ensinger has invested in capacity expansion several times this year with a new DBP installed at its polymer powder plant, prepreg system, and Cham’s subsidiary plant. The product range includes polymer powders, continuous fiber reinforced semi-pregs, prepregs, organosheets, as well as compression molded composite plates and finished parts made from a variety of material combinations.
“We can offer our customers a broad portfolio of engineering services related to composite products from a single source. Especially with the latest investments, the Ensinger Group has become a strategic player in the thermoplastic composites market. It’s in an excellent position. ” Daniel Grauer in charge of international business development for the division at Ensinger Said in a statement.
