to produce series glass fibre plastic vehicle components economically

Weight saving for energy conservation is one of the main themes in vehicle design. Metzner is playing its part in this by the development and supply of converting machinery for pre-preg material used in the manufacture of vehicle components.

The machines designed by Metzner first monitor the quality of the pre-preg material at a speed of 1 metre/second using a camera system. Defective material is cut out and separated. The defect-free material is cut into the required lengths and arranged according to pre-set plans in numerous layers and in different positions.

Certain vehicle components (e.g. leaf springs) also require cut-outs and shaping of the pre-preg materials and subsequently the exact positioning of the cut relative to a material feature. The machine then performs further quality control functions with automatic documentation and back-traceability.

Key Features

  • For the production of coach springs made of fibreglass reinforced plastic
  • Air-free cutting and laying of the material; cutting without fraying
  • Measuring and reliable removal of parts with possible material or production defects
  • Freely programmable length and laying settings for individual production
