Natural fiber materials

Car doors in natural fiber

New materials based on natural fibers are entering the industry. Whether for automotive or aeronautics, they have many advantages:

- Weight gain
- Recycling
- Notion of eco-design
- etc…

They come in the form of wood, flax fiber, hemp, kenaf or others, and often reinforce conventional materials to give bio-composites:

- Reinforced polymers
- NFPP (Natural Fiber Poly Propylene)
- PPKenaf
- etc …

AXIOME, a leader in robotic machines, particularly for cutting, is therefore adapting its machines to these new materials.
Recent developments concern:

- Trimming and drilling by high pressure water jet
- Cutting by milling with specially adapted tools
- Weakening by milling on particular profiles (airbag zone)
