Roth invests in lab plant for customer trials

Roth Composite Machinery, a manufacturer of specialist machinery for the composites sector, will be exhibiting at the JEC World trade show in March, where it will showcase a new laboratory plant for prepreg applications.

Roth prepreg production lines are used to manufacture semi-finished fibre composites, which can later be processed into finished products using pre-impregnated, partially cured thermoset matrix materials.

The company has invested around EUR 1 million in the new prepreg laboratory plant. In collaboration with Roth Composite Machinery, customers and raw material producers can experiment with new matrix systems, fibres and materials without interrupting their own production, the manufacturer explains.

Filament winding

Another focus at the fair in Paris is the company’s product range of machines for filament winding, a process to manufacture products made from high-quality plastics that are particularly robust thanks to fibre reinforcement, to be used in lightweight construction applications.

In particular, these are used in the automotive and sports industries, in aerospace and in wind turbines. Synthetic resin or thermoplastic materials are processed on these machines and systems using reinforcing fibres, usually made from glass or carbon.

Roth Composite Machinery

Roth Composite Machinery plans, designs and manufactures aggregates, machines and entire production lines across the business areas Filament Winding & Prepeg, Pleating & Coating and Brushes & Brooms.

Roth Composite Machinery arose from the merger of the special-purpose machine designers EHA and Schlesinger. The manufacturer belongs to the family company Roth Industries GmbH & Co. KG with more than 1200 employees worldwide.
