R. van den Aker, Van Wees UD and Crossply Technology BV Tilburg, The Netherlands
Van Wees has made UD and Crossply machines since 1993. The first machines were built for the ballistics industry in which it has become a bench mark and leading technology. More than ten turnkey production lines have been built producing millions of square meters per year. In 2006 the first prepreg machine for thermoset resins was built for the composites industry and in 2007 Van Wees started with the thermoplastic resin based equipment. In 2010, the first Multi-axial UD machine was built. A turnkey line is made up of creels, impregnation machine, crossply and/or Multi-axial UD machine.
Van Wees presents a study, being performed in cooperation with TPRC in the Netherlands and Kraus Maffei in Germany. The product which is chosen for this study is a crash beam, to be mounted in an automotive door. This product is originally designed with a Glass-PA fabric reinforced blank, so-called “Organic Sheet” from the demonstration project LIPA- series www.lipa-series.com
