INNOVATIONS INNOVATIONS New generation of GRE and GRP pipe production lines Autonational is a global supplier of turnkey production lines for pipes, elbows and tees. The lines can produce GRE pipes up to 9 metres in length and 80 mm to 600 mm in diameter. Autonational has developed a new-generation continuous production line. The continuous GRP pipe production plant includes multiple components, the main one being the continuous pipe production machine. This machine is equipped to continuously produce GRP pipes ranging from 300 to 3,000 mm in diameter. A pipe wall structure is created by combining chopped roving, sand, hoop roving and resin. New innovations have made it possible to produce pipes of consistently high quality at high production speed with a minimum risk of machine failure. The machine was designed to enable fast mandrel change to minimise down time. A resin and peroxide skid is used for the fully automated raw material metering, mixing and supply to the winding machine. A coupling grinding machine is used for the production of couplings. The leak tightness of pipes and couplings is tested by hydrostatic testing equipment. The couplings are applied on pipes with a joining machine. Laboratory equipment is included for testing raw materials and finished products. www.autonational.com > Pipes & Tanks > Production > Aeronautics > Marine > Transportation The range of composite tooling materials from Axson Technologies has expanded to include a high-temperature infusion resin for use up to 190°C. The EPOLAM 2090 / 2026 is an epoxy resin for the infusion of large, high-temperature-resistant moulds. It is approved by numerous industries: aerospace, marine, transportation, etc. Infusion provides results close to prepreg lay-ups without the high costs linked to high-temperature cure, ovens, cold storage and heat-resistant models. The low viscosity of this epoxy resin, associated with a low reactivity and a very long pot-life, is ideal for the infusion of moulds exceeding five meters. The initial viscosity is stable for 24 hours, the product does not self-combust in bulk, and the viscosity of the resin is stable during storage. Moreover, the EPOLAM 2090 / 2026 is compatible with a wide range of auxiliary products. www.axson.com New high-temperature composite tooling infusion system > Aeronautics > Automation > Production ASC Process Systems is > etc. now certified to build autoclave pressure vessels for operation within the People’s Republic of China. With this certification, the ASC Econoclave™ is now available in every country worldwide. After numerous requests from customers in China who already use the industry standard CPC™ control package, this was a Autoclaves from XS to XXL Extrusion lines for PET foam sheets and boards B.C. Foam offers extrusion lines for the production of: - PET foam sheets suitable for thermoforming with coextrusion outside, inside or on both sheet sides, for the food packaging industry; - PET foam boards with a density ranging from 60 to 400 kg/m3 and thicknesses up to 100 mm, using two different technologies and different blowing agents, i.e. nitrogen, CO2, HFC or hydrocarbons according to the required densities. The boards are used in marine, aeronautics, automotive, wind energy and other special applications. The range of extrusion lines covers productivities up to 500 kg/h. Lines with higher productivity levels are currently being investigated. For R&D activities, B.C. Foam has set up a pilot line and a big industrial line complete with downstream equipment making it possible to run industrial-type productions in order to support customers in the product launching phase. www.bcfoam.com > Aeronautics > Automotive > Marine > Wind energy > etc. natural step to enhance ASC’s worldwide capabilities. Each Econoclave™ system is fully factory quality tested prior to shipment to customers. The system is as close as possible to “plug & play” configuration when it arrives on the customer’s doorstep. Thus, installation time and costs are greatly reduced to provide customers smooth ramp up to production. Complete packages are available at affordable prices. www.aschome.com 20 jec composites magazine / No48 May 2009
