Multiple Zoned Heating and Infinitely Variable Vacuum levels give precision control for forming complex parts with varying density of material not achieved by other Hot Drape Formers.
||Stiffeners, spars, ribs, strutts, braces|
The heat bank incorporates multiple infrared heating lamps which are fully adjustable to achieve the optimum distance from your tool/component. The heater bank provides multiple heating zones allowing different temperature profiles along the tool. This enables forming components of alternating carbon thickness with highly accurate temperature control and recording via multiple thermocouples. Luminaries light the whole process for viewing via inspection windows.
Cooling gives a controlled ramp down rate, increases productivity and quality of finished product. The cooling system and the dimensions of ducts and diffusers are designed specifically to deliver the exact required rate of cooling.
The unique design of diaphragm precisely positions the carbon onto the tool. The diaphragm is attached to the diaphragm frame with a ‘Quick Locking System’ and seals automatically around the edge of the vacuum bed.
PINETTE P.E.I. developed the QSP ® Compact direct layup 1300, a standard unit allowing customers to benefit from QSP technology & advantages while drastically reducing the required Capex. This compact unit allows to manufacture 2D+ multi-thickness preforms with thermoplastic matrices in a one minute cycle time. It can be easily integrated in QSP ® turnkey production line.
