Hyogo Prefectural Institute of Technolog

Introduction to customer Hyogo Prefectural Institute of Technology
Hyogo Prefectural Institute of Technology is a public testing and research institute established by Hyogo Prefecture.
The Institute conducts technical support activities for open manufacturing to support small and medium-sized companies.

The Institute was in search of a vacuum press machine for prototype laminating composite materials including CFRP prepregs and woven fabrics.

Hyogo Prefectural Institute of Technology conducts technical support activities such as in-house and joint development of creative technology for textile products, new product development and high added value with advanced technology in order to revitalize the textile industry of Hyogo Prefecture, in particular, small and medium-sized companies and local companies.

And, it also cooperates with companies in Hyogo prefecture working to work on the development of innovative CFRP materials by utilizing their respective unique technologies.

Our press machine for prototype laminating CFRPs was adopted by such a customer.
Evaluated point 1: High degree of operability
This press machine adopts a PC system equipped with exclusive software developed by us. An intuitive interface enables easy settings and editing of the laminating program. The machine status during laminating can be monitored in real time. Also, past operation status can be securely managed because operation records for 12 consecutive months are maintained.
Evaluated point 2: High parallel accuracy, combined control technology
High parallel accuracy, combined control technology for temperature, pressure and vacuum.

Each structure such as the main frame takes measures so that no deformity will occur even under high pressure and high vacuum. In addition, this press was designed with consideration given to expansion and contraction due to heating and cooling, therefore, uniform and stable laminating can be realized while keeping very high accuracy. Temperature, pressure and vacuum are feedback-controlled, and the press can operate while always following the target set values.
