Ingersoll qualification and endurance tests
July 25, 2010
Ingersoll has just completed a series of qualification and endurance tests with the new vertical Fiber Placement Machine Mongoose V1.
During the 10 hours test the newly designed Fiber Delivery System (Head & Creel Module) has exceeded any optimistic expectation, depositing 600 lbs of carbon fiber without any roping or twisting of material.
More remarkably: of the 150,000 adds and cuts required during the test, there was not a single failure
This is the first Generation 3 machine, featuring:
Lay-up speed: from 50 to 60 m/min (2000 to 2400 IPM)
Cut speed: 50 m/min (2000 IPM)
Add speed: 50 m/min (2000 IPM)
The machine features automatic head & creel module automatic exchange.For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
