Zero-waste: New process, equipment recycles prepreg, tape offal

from Composites World

One challenge to kitting prepreg fabrics or unidirectional (UD) tapes is figuring out what to do with trimmings that are too small or whose fibers are incorrectly aligned for reuse in another project. Although nesting software and cutters have reduced scrap significantly, trimmings still often go into a landfill, which adds to material and part costs as well as environmental burden. However, a Dutch company is helping improve sustainability by developing a new technology — and the machines that make it possible — to reuse thermoplastic tape offal. more
