The new STAXX Box automated fiber placement system opens the market for automation. It presents groundbreaking possibilities for composite manufacturing in terms of production, shop floor capabilities, and research and development projects. This system is an evolution of ther existing STAXX Flex, STAXX One, and STAXX Compact systems, delivering exceptional manufacturing knowledge in a more compact and cost-effective package with a much smaller footprint. It brings automation also to those companies with smaller parts or lower rates where traditionally lots of tasks are still manual.
Built on the foundation of the modular STAXX One End Effector, this highly versatile and reliable system can be easily integrated into any shopfloor without the need for complex commissioning – it’s a plug-and-play solution. The STAXX Box facilitates the layup of various materials, such as DryFiber, PrePreg, Thermoplastic, and more, offering a wide range of applications. Moreover, it reduces the downtime typically associated with material and layup testing, thus making production more efficient and cost-effective. Notably, this 4-axis system is not only about expanding production capabilities but also excels in manufacturing small composite parts with a reliable and versatile process.
