Autonational Composites delivers resin impregnation systems for filament winding machines based on the so called dip tray or drum tray principle. Both systems have their own features and advantages. Resin trays are used for wet filament winding. Composite fibers run down into and up out of a resin bath. The fibers are drawn through the bath and the resin-impregnated fibers are subsequently wound on a mandrel.

 

Our modular resin trays are user friendly, easy to install & easy to clean. They can be applied for use of nearly all resin mix recipes. Our systems are equipped with a temperature and level control system. They are optimized for maximum impregnation, minimal air inclusion and optimal consistency of resin. Applying different types of resin mix will require only the exchange of a plastic foil insert. As a result the resin mix changeover time will be approx. 15 minutes. Our resin trays include a resin bath suitable to process 8 to 64 fibres. Other designs are available on request.

 

Speeds of 60-70 meters per minute can be realized depending on the fibre & resin combination. In addition, our impregnation systems are easy to clean and user friendly.

 

Autonational supplies also integrated resin farms including resin storage, pumping, mixing & dosing features. The resin dosing unit automatically supplies new material to the resin tray (impregnation unit) after a resin request from the controller of the automated level control functionality.

 

Dip Type Resin Tray

Our resin tray design is optimised to obtain excellent impregnation quality. This results in low void content and optimum consistency of resin fraction and with a good individual controllable roving tension. The impregnation units are designed to be user friendly and easy to install. Resin trays can be provided with resin heating and level control.

 

Features

  • Water bath heated
  • Water level & temperature sensor (standard)
  • Easy to clean
  • Low void content
  • Low tension application
  • Suitable for glass fiber
  • Low resin level in the tray (prevents gelling & sagging)
  • Resin bath size 8-16-32-64 (2*32) fibers

Drum type resin tray

Our drum type resin tray is optimised for minimum defelction of the fiber, resulting in less fiber damage, allowing high tension. The impregnation units are designed to be user friendly and easy to install. Also drum type resin trays can be provided with resin heating and level control.

 

Features

  • Water bath heated
  • Water level & temperature sensor (standard)
  • Easy to clean
  • High tension application
  • Suitable for glass and carbon fiber
  • Low resin level in the tray (prevents gelling & sagging)
  • Resin bath size 8-16-32-64 (2*32) fibers
