Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI, Ankara, Turkey) has announced plans to build a 95,000 square-meter composite plant for structural aircraft parts that will reportedly become the world’s fourth-largest composite plant.

The new “smart digital factory” will reportedly use autonomous systems and augmented reality applications to ensure accuracy and high productivity. TAI says production processes and productivity will be monitored in real-time using thousands of sensors and advanced machining, measurement and calbration systems will be used to ensure precision. Parts will reportedly be inspected using ultrasonic and X-ray non-destructive testing (NDT) systems to ensure quality.

TAI says engineering and R&D activities will occur concurrently with production and claims that the new facility will manufacture 2 percent of the world’s composite aerospace components.
