Carbon Fiber Testing

The EddyCus® CF inline BW as well as the EddyCus® CF map 4040BW are especially designed for non-contact monitoring local basis weight variations of carbon fiber fabrics. By using the EddyCus® CF inline BW, several lanes can be controlled. Consequently, the entire web of carbon non-wovens or UD tapes can be monitored during the production process. The EddyCus® CF map 4040BW scans carbon fiber fabrics with a local resolution of 1x1 mm² to display the uniformity of carbon fiber volume (basis weight map). Preforms can also be mapped regarding local grammage deviations. In sum, the EddyCus® systems can provide interesting insights on intermediate and recycled carbon fiber products.


  • Carbon fiber fleece
  • Carbon fiber prepreg & organic sheets
  • Recycled short or chopped carbon fibers
  • Carbon fiber UD tapes
  • Other technical non-wovens

Software & Handling

The EddyCus® CF control provides modules for data depiction, data storage, and data review. The system is connected to an industrial computer or MES via Ethernet, RS 232, or RS 485 connection for data exchange.
  • Real-time depiction of basis weight
  • Integration of panel to depict measurement values at any location
  • Direct communication via TCP/IP to MES or via software
