Expanding its footprint in the aerospace industry, Bilsing Automation GmbH (Attendorn, Germany) announced on Feb. 11 that it has invested in a Conbility Pre-Pro 3D automated tape placement and applicator machine for Advanced Fiber Placement (AFP) and Advanced Tape Laying (ATL) applications. As manufacturers strive to reduce aircraft weight through production of composite structures, Bilsing plans to use this new machine for producing interior parts including galley, seat and overhead bin components.

The Conbility PrePro system is capable of processing thermoplastic, thermoset and dry fiber placement and winding, including prepregs, with up to 50 millimeters of tape tension control. Bilsing says a notable feature of the equipment is its ability to directly produce complex, 3D preform structures as well as tubular components. The advanced laser technology accommodates a wide range of process temperatures.

This service is provided at Bilsing Automation Turkey, which holds aviation industry certifications in EASA Part-145, FAA 14 CFR 145/43, GACAR Part 145/43 and SHY Part 145.
