Composites

Composites are materials which consist of fibers or fabrics embedded in a matrix, e.g. a polymer. Among the different types of composites, those based on carbon fibers or rovings are of growing importance because of their excellent strength and stiffness to weight ratio. Well known fields of application are structural components and parts of the body of aircrafts or motor cars. Such applications require high tenacity and also a flawless texture of the fabric structure which all can be assured with Textechno instruments.

FIMATEST/FIMABOND

The FIMATEST consists of two devices: the partially automated embedding station FIMABOND, which is suited for all kind of reinforcement fibres as well as for thermoset, thermoplastic or mineral matrices, and a device that performs high precision pull-out tests as a new accessory to Textechno's single-fibre linear-density and tensile tester FAVIMAT+.

The pull-out device is easy to install and operate in the FAVIMAT+. A microscopic camera facilitates the adjustment of the clamps as close as possible to the matrix surface with perfect alignment.

The FIMATEST system has won the JEC World 2016 Innovation award.

RovingTest

Measures all important properties in manufacturing, processing and R&D of carbon and glass raying; in a single test system:

  • Friction properties (fibre-to-fibre and fibre-to-solid surfaces)
  • Spreading behavior (how easily and how wide can a roving be spread; width regularity and occurrence of gaps before and after spreading)
  • Detection of broken filaments (before and after spreading or frictional stress)
  • Homogeneity Of filament orientation in the roving measured by eddy currents (carbon fibre only). The sensor detects to which extend filaments are not perfectly oriented.

ROVINGTEST is a fully modular system that can be adapted to the customer's requirements to measure any of the above-mentioned properties.

DRAPETEST

The DRAPETEST characterizes drapability and the formation of defects during the draping and forming process of standard- and non-crimp fabrics. The tester combines the measurement of the force required to deform the sample and the determination of small-scale defects such as gaps and by using an image analysis system developed by the Easgrj_nstitut Bremen (FIBRE). An optional triangulation sensor measures large-scale defects such as wrinkles.

 

DRAPETEST is suited for fabrics made of glass, carbon, Aramid and other materials. Additionally the DRAPETEST can be utilized for other testing procedures and materials, e.g. automotive seating materials.

 

The test procedures implemented by the DRAPETEST have recently been published as DIN SPEC 8100.
