Dry Fibre Placement (DFP) is an automated preforming method for load-related alignment and positioning of fibre materials in preforms for Liquid Composite Moulding (LCM) processes. Thus, it enables an optimal utilisation of fibre properties and is an interesting addition to established preforming technologies. Furthermore, DFP provides the major advantage of low scrap rates and the possibility to omit cost-intensive textile processes. At IVW, initially a system for online binder application has been integrated in a DFP process. This allows a large variety of combinations of fibre and binder types as well as local adjustment of binder amount.

In times of increasing energy costs and decreasing emission limit values, there is a rapidly growing demand in materials with high lightweight potential. Particularly in mobility and energy sectors, such as automotive and aviation as well as wind energy industry, a reduced part mass can contribute to a significant increase of total efficiency. Due...
