Composites repair


Composites repair specialist BCT (Dortmund, Germany) will feature at JEC Europe 2013 equipment for automated scarfing in repair applications. Stationary and mobile automated scarfing solutions from BCT reportedly can reduce aircraft on-ground times and improve the quality of patch repair preparations. BCT’s recently developed 5-axis mobile milling machine is equipped with an optical scanner and adaptive machining software and is able to automatically prepare composite structures with eligible shape for patch repair.
