Cutting and processing fibre-composite elements and components is a challenge for every manufacturer.
Fassmer employs a range of different assembly devices and cutting devices (CNC), in order to meet the customers’ increasingly demanding requirements.
But the tools themselves also have to comply with special standards. Fibre-composite materials are inhomogeneous and put a varying strain on the tools, leading to a high degree of wear and tear. Materials with a high resin content are prone to spalling and delamination.
Modern CNC milling machines enable a wide range of processing options for components of all standards.
These machines can fabricate plastic elements with a high precision, according to individual specifications – be it an individual item or a mass-produced series. CNC machining allows for extremely good fitting accuracy and precision, despite the stringent requirements.
Fassmer has three CNC machining centres where five-axis milling machines can process wooden, plastic or metal components with a size of up to 5,800 x 12,000 x 3,000mm.
Special precision, reproducibility requirements and large quantities call for a higher degree of automation.
For this purpose, Fassmer relies on robotic support, for example for gluing SMC elements into high roofs in the automotive industry.
Fassmer also owns a multi-colour gelcoat plant. It allows the swift application of different gelcoat colours, without significant cleaning measures.
