The STAXX FLEX is a high performance automated fiber placement end-effector for complex two- and three-dimensional parts. Its low weight of 440 kg including material enables it to be mounted on standard industrial robots of the 500kg class. The system is ideal for automated fiber placement in serial production. It supports common materials such as PrePreg and Dry Fiber up to 50K per tow.
The open, modular design ensures good accessibility to all components and quick and easy maintenance without tools. An automatic changing device can be integrated to further increase productivity. This allows maintenance work and material loading to be carried out parallel to the laying operation.
