FDC process: ALLROUNDER for innovative lightweight construction

The program "arburgGREENworld" includes the subject resource-saving. At the Chinaplas 2021 a resource-saving lightweight construction application will be presented: Via the innovative Fibre Direct Compounding (FDC) process, a lateral feeder cuts glass fibre rovings into lengths before adding them directly into the liquid melt to reinforce the component with continuous fibres. The materials are readily available and the process reduces costs by up to 40 percent. The fibre length, fibre content and material combination can be adapted flexibly to influence the component properties in a targeted manner.
A hydraulic ALLROUNDER 820 S produces long glass fibre-reinforced PP platforms. The cycle time is around 80 s and the weight of the moulded part 680 g. The consistency of the shot weight and fibre content is displayed via a weight monitor integrated into the automation system, with the measurement being checked as a process parameter in the control system. A linear MULTILIFT SELECT deposits the finished parts on a conveyor belt.
