Composites in sports
Increase sports performance
Composites have become an essential part of modern sports and are used in a wide range of applications to improve the performance and durability of equipment in sports. Benefit from our many years of experience in the realization of efficient production plants for the manufacture of composite components. As a systems supplier for the Sports and Leisure industry, we combine hydraulic presses with the processing of advanced materials such as high-performance thermoplastics, while also enabling the outstanding properties of glass and carbon fibers. Dieffenbacher provides you with composites solutions that optimally meet the highest demands of component quality, lower production costs and reduced material usage. Our systems support every production step, from the provision of semifinished products to component handling, processing and finishing.
Composites applications in the Sports and Leisure industry
Composites products for sports and leisure
Tapelaying system Fiberforge
Produce tape layups for the production of composite components faster. Tapes made of glass, carbon and natural fibers. The Dieffenbacher Fiberforge is the fastest tape laying line in the world.
Consolidation of tailored blanks
Better and faster consolidation of tailored blanks. The Dieffenbacher Fibercon consolidates tailored blanks into near-net-shape laminates with excellent quality and very low void content.
Wide performance range at an attractive price. Improve your competitiveness with the efficient TailoredPress for forming composite and metal components.
Challenge of the Sports and Leisure industry
Dieffenbacher composites systems enable optimum material utilization and reduced material usage thanks to near-net-shape cutting, material-saving nesting methods and fiber distribution optimized for component load. A freely selectable fiber orientation in the component ensures that the component can be perfectly optimized and improved to suit its application and load paths. As a supplier of turnkey production plants with clever automation solutions, we ensure that production processes run safely and reliably.
To ensure that ever shorter cycle times can be met, high technical availability and reliable machine technology are required. Dieffenbacher composites systems guarantee reliable processes thanks to an analysis function during system operation. By using high-performance thermoplastics, cycle times can be drastically reduced (compared to thermoset plastics) without any loss in component performance.
The use of process data acquisition ensures the storage of all component-specific parameters and their subsequent evaluation. In addition, our lines can be equipped with tracking tools. Each component is assigned a customer-specific code that contains information related to its manufacture. By scanning the component downstream, the data can be determined and evaluated, and the production process can be adjusted if necessary.
