The design software enables to make new and custom designs in 15 minutes. The robotic equipment enables to apply all material (and nylon pressure tape) layers on the product mandrel fast and accurately. In the first tests labor cost reductions up to 70% have been obtained.
The first release, for rubber expansion joints with full faced rubber flanges (FRF) is expected in May 2011. TANIQ is also working on the release of other applications such as other types of expansion joints, pipe-plugs, air-springs, elbows and more.
