Thermoset Prepreg Machine

Thermoset Prepreg Machine

Prepreg is the basic process of impregnating a technical fabric (glass, carbon, aramid, etc.) with a resin and converting a prepreg. This process is used for Advanced Structural Composites, Printed Circuit boards (Copper Clad Laminates – CCL) and various other Laminates. Prepreg can be for woven or non-woven webs, paper, or unidirectional tows to make tape. The resins used in the Prepreg Line primarily use organic solvents in the dip, and require special safety systems for the processing and handling of solvents.

    Pathsfinder Prepreg machine is equipped with:
  • Vertical or horizontal heating / evaporating system depending on the resin being used
  • Fabric machines can be either vertical or horizontal
  • UD solution machines are normally horizontal

Fabric Prepreg Treating Woven fabric prepreg can start with Glass, Carbon, Aramid, and other textiles. Typical widths start at 12” (300 mm) and go up to 50” (1270 mm) based on available weave widths. The ovens can be vertical or horizontal depending on the space available for the customer.

    Web Handling – unwinds, rewinds, tension control
  • Unwinds and rewinds feature safety chucks for safe operation and precise tension control
  • Custom designed to accommodate the package sizes and desired speed and tension requirements

    Resin Application – Impregnation Station and Metering Rolls
  • Resin application is through doctor roller or metering roller system to ensure application of proper amount of resin on the fiber.

Generally, a dipping process followed by a set of precision doctor rolls. The doctor rolls set a finite gap and remove the excess material to achieve the proper resin content weight.

Composites in Automotives

Composite materials are increasingly being used in the automotive industry due to their high strength, light weight, and corrosion resistance. Here are some examples of where composite materials are commonly used in automotive applications:
  • Body panels: Composite materials such as carbon fiber, fiberglass, and Kevlar are used in the construction of body panels for vehicles. These materials are lightweight and have a high strength-to-weight ratio, making them ideal for reducing vehicle weight and improving fuel efficiency.
  • Suspension components: Composite materials can be used to make suspension components such as control arms, springs, and sway bars. These components can be designed to be stronger and lighter than their metal counterparts.
  • Brakes: Carbon-ceramic brake discs are made from a composite material that includes carbon fibers and ceramic particles. These discs are lighter and provide better performance than traditional metal discs.
  • Wheels: Composite materials are used in the construction of high-performance wheels for racing and sports cars. These wheels can be designed to be lighter and stronger than traditional metal wheels.
  • Battery casings: Composite materials such as thermoplastic composites are being used to make battery casings for electric vehicles. These materials can provide a lightweight and strong alternative to traditional metal casings.
