FARO Technologies Inc. is exhibiting its TracerM laser projector, a versatile, scalable and flexible solution that can handle small- to-large volume applications.
FARO Technologies Inc. is exhibiting its TracerM laser projector, a versatile, scalable and flexible solution that can handle small- to-large volume applications. It covers an envelope of 50 by 50 ft, with a 3D projection range of 6-50 ft, making it well-suited for short- and long-range projection. For large assemblies such as aircraft and shipbuilding applications or space-constrained areas, several TracerM projectors can be deployed for complete coverage.
Thermoplastic tapes are not new to composites, but they soon will join the primary aerostructures material palette and could be their future.
Spirit AeroSystems actualizes Airbus’ intelligent design for the A350’s center fuselage and front wing spar in Kinston, N.C.
There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. Here's a guide to selection.
