Burgmann Packings Composites, based in Ireland, has launched a new robot handling system for over-braiding a range of mandrels and cores.

The multi-axis Kuka robot system has a reach of over 3 m and is integrated into the Herzog radial braiding machine based in Dublin. According to the company, the integration of the robot allows deposition of fibers, including carbon, glass, aramid, basalt and natural fibers, on a wide range of mandrel shapes and sizes.
