OCTOBER 2012 - Scorpo™ Robotics for manufacturing large bore hoses

TANIQ has developed Scorpo Robotics to make large bore hoses up to 12 meters in length, and 2.5 meters in diameter. Parallel to this machine development TANIQ has developed and successfully tested the first scaled prototypes on a smaller set-up. To further optimize the reinforcement construction TANIQ is working on a mathematical model to optimize multi-layer reinforcement structures. The accurate robotic reinforcement winding enables to apply different winding angles per reinforcement layer, which enables to activate the layers more efficiently.
