Sandvik Developing a Hybrid Press for Composite Materials

Sandvik is working with TechnoPartner Samtronic (TPS) to develop a hybrid press that makes use of both steel and Teflon belt for the production of high quality composite materials.

According to Sandvik, the ‘CombiPress’ differs from their existing double belt presses as steel belts are only used in the forming section where their strength and thermal properties are essential; elsewhere, non-stick Teflon belts are used, reducing the overall investment cost of the CombiPress. They explain that the need for a combination of heat, pressure and cooling makes the steel belt the ideal process medium and enables the production of a wide range of composite materials, with applications across the construction, automotive and aerospace industries.

Sandvik will be discussing the development of continuous, multi-stage double belt presses for the production of high quality composite materials at Composites Europe next week.

Sandvik can be found in Hall 4, stand D58 at the show.
