Voith Composites at JEC World 2017

With the VRA, Voith Composites consistently applies the strategy "From the fiber directly into the component": the fiber direct placement procedure, which is implemented in the VRA, merges the individual processing steps, which were previously required, into one, dispenses with the utilization of semi-finished products in the manufacturing process and allows significantly higher cost and efficiency advantages. The VRA has been nominated for the JEC Innovation Award 2017 in the discipline 'Manufacturing', which is presented at the exhibition.

"With our presence at the Paris trade show we would like to take a look at the future of our industries with our customers and all visitors," stated Dr. Lars Herbeck, Executive Vice President of Voith Composites. "With the Voith Roving Applicator we are setting standards and demonstrate how industrial series production of CFRP components can be efficiently put into practice with state-of-the art machines and processes."
