CONTINUOUS COMPRESSION MOLDING (CCM) FROM TEUBERT
Our customers rely on Teubert’s high-class machines for making composites. 2 + 2 = 5! Because composites perform better than the individual constituent materials. The combination of fibers and the thermoplastic matrix results in an extremely strong, rigid material with a very light weight.
The matrix basically consists of thermoplastic - either as a raw material (polymer, granulate or powder form) or as a semi-finished product (film, fiber or prepreg form). For the fiber, all commercially available fibers can be used as raw material, as semi-finished product or in semi-finished form, e.g. as mats, nonwovens or fabrics.
The benefits speak for themselves:
- High potential for lightweight construction due to excellent weight-related rigidity and stability
- Numerous valuable physical properties
- Customized materials are possible
- High degree of creative freedom and flexibility in production
CCM Single Stage
Primary production of semi-finished products
Profile production possible.
CCM Double Stage
Primary production of long profiles with continuous, curved or varying cross section in a continuous process.
Plate production possible.
The advantage: A wide range of material combinations and layer structures
The CCM process makes almost continuous production possible. A feeding unit pulls the material through the press, which opens and closes cyclically. Precisely regulated laminate pressure of up to 25 bar as well as temperatures of maximum 500°C help to produce semi-finished products as plates (organic sheets) or complex profiles.
The layer structure varies considerably depending on the application. Film stacking (dry mats with thermoplastic foil) or pre-consolidated UD tapes are used to produce high quality polymers. For cost-effective fiber-reinforced composites, the matrix can be injected directly from the granulate.
Semi-finished products made using the CCM process have a degree of porosity of under 1 % with a very low dimensional tolerance. The semi-finished products can be further processed using hot-forming or mechanical processes.
Thermoplastic films with fiber fabric / scrim (film stack)
Unidirectional fiber pre-impregnated with matrix (UD-Tape)
Hybrid fabrics (Twintex)
Direct injection of melt between fiber fabrics (Direct melt injection)
