Advanced Composite Products for automotive applications
Composite transmission shafts or drive shafts, impeller shafts, high-speed fly wheels, (pneumatic and hydraulic) pressure vessels, tanks, CNG & LNG tanks, magnetic retention sleeves and other (complex geometrical) cylindrical shapes are ideal automotive products to produce by filament winding technology. Automotive Manufacturers increasingly use advanced composite materials (containing fiber of glass, carbon, kevlar, etc.) to save weight and increase fuel efficiency. Also, RFID technology is increasingly integrated into high-end composite parts.
FILAMENT WINDING MACHINES & PRODUCTION LINES
Autonational Composites can integrate, customize, automate, expand and upgrade any filament winding production process for high volume production; but also for low volumes that require high accuracy and reproducibility. We are able to upscale & improve production capacity, efficiency (e.g. reduction of scrap), reliability and reproducibility and we offer advanced solutions for resin mixing and dosing, Track & Trace (e.g. RFID), and handling of materials.
Autonational offers custom-made equipment for a wide variety of task, sizes and shapes, that comply with international regulations. The equipment can be automated to any degree desired and with any technology required.
Autonational has experience with the development, design, manufacturing and validation of production, testing and re-work equipment for high-volume, high-specification composite parts in demanding markets like Automotive.
