Steffenberg/Düsseldorf. From 26. November to 1. December 2016 Roth Composite Machinery will be exhibiting at the Composites Europe in the city of Düsseldorf. The expert in special-purpose mechanical engineering exhibits in hall 8b at stand C45. Roth Composite Machinery plans, designs and manufactures aggregates, machines and entire production lines across the business areas „Filament Winding &Prepeg“, „Pleating & Coating“ and „Brushes & Brooms“.
The product range of the manufacturer with head quarters in Steffenberg, Germany includes machines for filament winding. This is a process to manufacture products made from high-quality plastics that are particularly robust thanks to fibre reinforcement, to be used in lightweight construction applications. In particular, these are used in the automotive and sports industries, in aerospace and in wind turbines. Synthetic resin or thermoplastic materials are processed on these machines and systems using reinforcing fibres, usually made from glass or carbon. Prepreg systems are used to manufacture composite fibre semi-finished goods that can be further processed and made into finished products in subsequent stages using the preimpregnated (hence the term prepreg), partially set thermoplastic matrix.
The Pleating & Coating product range supplies machines and systems for finishing materials produced in webs: Filter folding machines are used in the production of air, water or oil filters in the automobile industry, as well as in aviation, hydraulics, ventilation and medical technology.
This production area includes both mechanical and servomotor-driven knife pleating machines and the corresponding peripheral systems.
Coating and impregnation systems are used to manufacture goods produced in webs, including paper, films, laminates and fabrics. In this product area in particular, Roth Composite Machinery offers solutions tailored to the customer’s requirements.
Roth Composite Machinery – previously known as SCHLESINGER – has been making machines for manufacturing brushes and brooms for household and industry for almost 100 years. It began in 1919 with the production of a patented multi-spindle drill machine for wooden brushes. Practically every country in the world has a machine that was made in Burgwald. The specialist for brush machines offers an innovative range of carousel, universal and shearing machines. In particular, one of the manufacturer’s key mainstays is developing special-purpose machines. This is rounded off with a high level of innovation, quality and technological capability and a strong emphasis on customer service. By providing solutions that are tailored to the customer’s requirements, Roth enables its customers to enhance and secure their competitive position in the market.
Roth Composite Machinery arose from the merger of the special-purpose machine designers EHA and Schlesinger. The manufacturer belongs to the family company Roth Industries GmbH & Co. KG with more than 1200 employees worldwide. Roth Industries is one of the most innovative companies in building and industrial technologies.
