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 afpm@ingersoll.com
