Resource-efficient noobed 3D preforms with integrated recycled short-fibre mats

Recycled carbon fibres are short and of lower mechanical performance than virgin fibres. To retain their material value, recycled fibres can be combined with virgin fibres. However, currently the manufacture of the material combination requires a high rate of manual labour. The Noobing Technology from Fureho AB, or the automatic placement of fibre tows in three directions, has potential to solve this issue and has already proven successful in hybridisation of different fibre materials as well as in the introduction of different types of inserts. The purpose of this project is to investigate the potential to develop mentioned Noobing Technology towards short-long-fibre hybrids. The project is expected to provide a technology, and research-baseline for further development of robust Noobed preforms from recycled vs virgin-fibres. If proven fruitful, such a development can lead to the establishment of a more production-friendly and circular material use of composite materials.
