DOPAG introduces a new portfolio for composites processing
New production methods such as 3D printing call for innovative dosing solutions
The dosing technology manufacturer DOPAG will be revealing a new product portfolio for the composites industry at the world's leading composites trade fair, the JEC World 2019 in Paris, taking place between 12 and 14 March. DOPAG has recently expanded its focus on the traditional automotive, aerospace and wind power industries to new areas and is now offering trend-setting solutions for applications such as 3D printing.
Additive Manufacturing – Dosing solutions for liquid 3D printing
DOPAG is renowned for dosing systems specifically designed around the particularities of various different composite processing methods and for fine-tuning these systems in line with the newest developments. The case of the eldomix – a dosing system that has earned itself a well established position in the industry – is a perfect example of this. The system has recently been successfully used in an additive manufacturing application and is suitable for 3D liquid printing processes such as SLA (Stereolithography) and DLP / DLS (Digital Light Processing) as well. eldomix 100 meters and mixes two-component materials based on polyurethane, silicone, epoxy or acrylic resin. This precisely mixed solution can be filled into the material reservoirs of 3D printers either automatically or manually. JEC World visitors will be able to see the eldomix 100 at the DOPAG exhibition stand (Hall 6, Stand D52), together with samples of products of a liquid 3D printing proces.
Compomix FI – specific model for the impregnation of fibre material
DOPAG developed the compomix FI especially for the impregnation of fiber material – for example glass, aramid or carbon (fibre impregnation / FI). The system is an ideal option for filament winding, RTM (Resin Transfer Moulding) or Pultrusion. Depending on the specific application, the compomix FI can be used either to fill an impregnating bath and keep it at the desired level or to inject material directly into a mould. Material is supplied from two material tanks installed on the dosing system. These are refilled automatically – either gravimetrically or via standard refilling systems – and directly from the original material containers. Lastly, DOPAG’s tried and tested gear pump technology ensures precise dosing at all times.
