Highly precise motions during the production of CFRP and GFRP parts

Our servo drive technology enables flexible control of gripping elements
This new handling system from FILL, the Austrian mechanical engineering and plant construction company, is amazingly flexible: its motions can be executed steplessly and independently of one another. The gripper spider was equipped with intelligent small servo drive systems from WITTENSTEIN, which enable automated production of CFRP and GFRP parts on all axes.


INNOVATIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESS DEMANDS ULTRA-FLEXIBLE HANDLING

INNOVATIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESS DEMANDS ULTRA-FLEXIBLE HANDLING

The gripper spider is part of a complex and highly innovative manufacturing process. One central idea is that the same mold should be used to build up the layers and cure the CFRP and GFRP parts, which are used among other things as strut bars in the automotive industry.
