New Small Tape Layer for Composite Production and Part Conversion

MAG Cincinnati presents a new Small Flat Tape Layer (SFTL) for automated composites fabrication.

Newest member of the Charger Series of Automated Tape Layers, MAG Cincinnati say that the new platform provides an affordable, right-sized solution to production of long narrow flat parts, nested multi-part laminates, drape-formed skins, and more.

Offered in two models, the SFTL produces laminates up to 1.2 m (47 in) wide on the standard width machine and up to 2.5 m (100 in) wide on the wide version platform. Either model can be configured with additional bed and vacuum table modules to increase the maximum laminate length in one meter increments to optimize the machine size to the customer’s facility. Both models share the same low-profile design that fits easily into low-bay spaces. As an added cost-savings benefit, either model of SFTL installs on a simple flat floor that requires no special foundation.

As with all MAG Cincinnati automated composites lamination systems, the SFTL is equipped with the CM100 computer control, compatible for production-proven tape laying and fibre placement.
