Highlights from Dieffenbacher at Composites Europe 2006, which will be held in Essen from 20-22 September 2006, are the new, energy saving Compress Plus press generation that reflect the rapid developments made to Dieffenbacher’s LFT-D direct processing system.
In addition, they will be showing automated SMC processing for manufacturing light-weight components for structural and semi-structural applications. Interesting innovations have also been added to the manufacturer’s process monitoring and production data acquisition system. An expanded service concept, which includes 24-hour online support, completes the range of services provided by Dieffenbacher.
As in the past years, Dieffenbacher will also be represented at the 9th International AVK Conference, which will be taking place in Essen for the first time in connection with Composites Europe 2006. In the morning of the first day of the fair, Mr. Heinrich Ernst will hold a presentation about “Production of the SMC trunk lid for the VW Cabriolet EOS and the production of thermosetting fiber composites parts by the SMC direct process”.
TRB Lightweight Structures has recently gained the highest DIN 6701 (Parts 1-4) A1 type certification.
Composite products, based on polyurethane technologies from global chemical company Huntsman, are taking centre stage at a design exhibition at the Design Museum Gent, Belgium.
In late November, the 14 project partners in the MoPaHyb consortium developing a modular production plant for hybrid high-performance components wrapped up their successful efforts with a two-day symposium in Pfinztal, Germany.
