Ingersoll Machine Tools Inc. (Rockford, IL, US) highlighted its recent successful partnership with the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM, Blairsville, PA, US) and Orbital ATK (Dulles, VA, US) on an automated inspection system completed for the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL, Dayton, OH). The newly developed Automated Composite Structure Inspection System (ACSIS), which consists of a camera, lamps and a line scanner mounted on the layup machine gantry, scans the layup to identify and flag flaws. This allows inspections of parts made with automated fiber placement (AFP) in real-time while the composite structure is being fabricated, so defects and anomalies to be detected and repaired during the fabrication process.
