Automated tape laying (ATL) and automated fiber placement (AFP) are processes that use computer-guided robotics to lay one or several layers of carbon fiber tape or tows onto a mold to create a part or structure. Typical applications include aircraft wing skins and fuselages.
CGTech helps demystify the process of programming automated composite machinery by introducing the key components of machine independent off-line programming software.
A view of the trends in automated fiber placement and automated tape laying from inside the supply chain.
