Litzler designs WAECO Hot Melt Prepreg Equipment for the production of high quality unidirectional and woven prepregs. WAECO machines include systems for development and production situations from 12” to 60” wide machines including on-line and off-line filmers as well as a unique and patent pending Thermoplastic prepreg machine.
WAECO is the originator of the "S-wrap"™ prepreg process. This process has advanced the prepreg process to a reliable and repeatable process and has removed it from the "black art" arena. The "S-wrap"™ machine can increase production up to 100 fpm on a standard machine. Typical competing designs are only useful up to 15 fpm.
