Novel, true to final contour composite compressor valve plate
In close cooperation with the Winterthur-based compressor manufacturer and world market leader in the field of compressor systems, Burckhardt Compression AG, CrossTEQ AG realized a geometrically complex compressor valve plate with high-performance material properties using its own x-NET precision molding process.
Customer: Burckhardt Compression AG
Industry: Mechanical engineering, compressor systems
Material: Chopped tapes made of thermoplastic carbon fiber, PEEK/CF
Technologie: x-NE T Precision Molding
USP: Temperature & Pressure Resistance
When our material reaches its limits, we rely on CrossTEQ's high-performance composites
- Luzi Valär, Vice President Research & Development at Burckhardt Compression AG
Significantly improved compressor efficiency due to ultra-lightweight and durable valve plate
The high-quality fiber composite material gives the valve plate reliable and durable properties under the most adverse pressure and temperature conditions.
With high strength and low weight, valve plate life and compressor efficiency are significantly improved.
Firm & pressure resistant
Precise contour; Minimal finishing
Cost-efficient already from medium series size onwards
CrossTEQ's thermoplastic fiber composites enable versatile mechanical, chemical and tribological features that we can specifically evoke for high-performance components using our x-NET Precision Molding process.
- Lian Giger, Founder of CrossTEQ & Developer of x-NET Compression Molding Technology
