Much know-how in the field of composites
The Composite Center has been located in Bonn‘s Technikum since 2014. In addition to the winding machine, a welding system and a curing oven complete the equipment for the production of type IV composite pressure vessels. The know-how is there, the demand is high and the range of corresponding services is diverse.
For many years, Kautex Maschinenbau has planned and implemented entire production lines for composite pressure containers with all of the necessary pre and post processing modules. For composite applications, Kautex development engineers have worked on numerous projects to acquire know-how that is virtually unique in the market. The customers benefit from this knowledge through fast and competent consulting, a wide range of services and the joint development of prototypes. The spectrum of services ranges from the design and layout of composite pressure vessels for LPG, CNG and hydrogen, but also increasingly for compressed air and filter vessels, through the simulation of windings with running times and failure limits to cylinder curing and burst testing for LPG. The range is supplemented by cooperation with testing institutes in order to be able to carry out corresponding developments for natural gas applications (CNG) and hydrogen. Of course, only individual modules can be requested as is the case with many customers today. Naturally, the blow molding machines are also available for the production of liners from various materials and additives.
