Automated Tape Laying

World’s first automated tape layer based on Continuous Ultrasonic Tacking Technology.

The Falko ATL is developed to produce thermoplastic composite products by processing CFRT UD tapes. CFRT UD tapes are tacked to one another through a safe, efficient and reliable tacking technology. This results in stable and convenient to handle laminates and near-net-shape products ready for consolidation.
