Automatic taping machine - TORRESLAYUP

Productivity and flexibility together in a perfect solution

The specific design of the wrapping head provides the best results in terms of compaction, thus avoiding the need for debulking processes in the manufacture of the part.

The TORRESLAYUP works with tapes of 300, 150 (12”, 6”) of band width and can place a band width of up to 600 mm (24”) in multi-tape configuration.< /p>

There are also different multi-ribbon configurations available (4x150 mm – 4x75 mm– 2x150 mm) to be able to manufacture parts that require high "steering" power simultaneously using several belts suitable for that steering, but maintaining the bandwidth of the 300 or 600.

TORRESLAYUP machines are manufactured in different sizes to respond to customer requirements.

Its two ultrasonic blades, in a set of four NC-controlled axes, provide the ability to perform complex tape cuts during the placement process.

A laser defect detection system allows the machine to detect any defective part of the tape and prevents its placement on the part.

In addition, a sensitive and programmable band tension control system allows the machine to adapt to the most demanding compaction conditions on complex surfaces.

Among the available options, the machine can include an ultrasound cutting system for uncured parts just after lamination, thus eliminating the need for a dedicated machine.

The highly sophisticated TORLAY advanced programming software package allows the programmer to properly simulate, optimize and modify all the parameters associated with tapes, patterns and layers.

Then, a built-in post-processor automatically generates the CNC program for the parts.

Likewise, a software package is supplied for part history, in order to keep track of relevant events that have occurred in production.

Applications include the manufacture of flat, curved or high contour carbon fiber parts.

Productivity and flexibility together in a single perfect solution
