particularly suited for raw materials in
powder form, such as powder polymers and additives, or filler materials such as talc and chalk. Following
impregnation, the fibre-polymer
strands are cooled in a water bath and
then pelletized into rod-shaped pellets. Coperion Pelletizing Technology
GmbH's pelletizer is equipped with a
special chopping rotor for this task.
The final pellet length usually ranges
between 5 and 12 mm. While polypropylene was the most commonly
used base polymer in the past, there

is now a clear trend toward other
polymers such as PA, PEEK or PLA,
and others can be used as well according to need. Line speeds are up to 50
metres per minute, depending on the
polymer used.

A fully automated
production line
The complete line is provided with
optimized components to enable the
highest quality LFT pellet manufacturing. Along with the ZSK Mc18 or
STS Mc11 twin-screw extruders, a

Carbon Fiber
Composites Insight

specially designed impregnation die
head developed by ProTec is used,
which cannot clog with filler material.
Moreover, the roving is unwound with
rotating coils and pre-warmed with
individual fibre spreading, resulting
in the best possible fibre impregnation. The complete installation offers
another advantage: different polymers
in combination with special additives can be used in the same production line. The production of product
samples makes it possible to validate
components manufactured with LFT
pellets. With the twin-screw technology and the special impregnation die
head, it is also possible to use additional fillers and even regrind material. As a result, the customer receives
a fully automated production line, set
and optimized to his formulation.
The automotive industry is a typical
area of use for LFT. However, this
technology offers advantages for other
application fields where products are
exposed to higher requirements and
stresses, and would thus benefit from
higher quality. n
