DLR presents its innovative fibre placement mobile layer unit

13 Mar 2019

World Premiere on JEC World, with the novel mobile layup units which can move around freely and lay the fibres directly in the mould.

Several small, free-moving autonomous mobile layup units are expected to respond more flexibly than was previously the case to component scaling, geometry and design changes when used in a swarm, without rigid, limiting guidance kinematics. As there is no requirement to reinforce the facility’s foundations, the technology can be used within existing production halls.

The use of mobile layup units in the production of large fibre-composite components is not limited to the field of aeronautics; another possible application is the production of wind turbine rotor blades. Since the mobile layup units can be deployed in such a flexible way, they could also be used to produce flat building components from fibre composites directly on construction sites.
