KARL MAYER Technische Textilien has launched SIM.PLY, a new line for producing thermoplastic, unidirectional, fibre-reinforced tapes (UD tapes), at the ITMA 2019 trade fair in Barcelona as part of their motto to extend their operations along the way to becoming a systems supplier for the production of dry and impregnated multiaxial textiles.
The company is approaching new techniques to market the newly launched SIM.PLY and hence the specialist in NCFs will be exhibiting for the first time at the K trade fair – a show that also targets the users. The K 2019 show this year will take place from 16 to 23 October in Dusseldorf.
“We want to strengthen and expand our image as an expert player in the production of dry and impregnated, reinforcing, multiaxial textiles at the interface between textiles and plastics,” says Dr. Jürgen Troltzsch.
The high-quality UD tapes, with their precisely aligned, continuous fibres, are perfect for use in highly stressed, fibre-reinforced, lightweight structures. The thermoplastic matrix means that they are easy to process, which makes large-scale production feasible. The new launch SIM.PLY favors mass production by operating at a high production rate and enabling tapes in wide range of widths to be produced.
