20 years of automating composites
Accudyne Systems provides solutions to complex processing challenges, like its recent Small Parts Laminator that picks, places and forms plies in one minute.

Automated Stringer Former keeps rotorcraft flying
Accudyne Systems equipment has been producing V-22 Osprey composite stringers for over seven years.

Automating the CH-53K’s composite flexbeams
Accudyne doubles the part production rate and eliminates layup errors through stepwise automation of this primary structure’s complex hand layup process.

Composites automation: Trending smaller and robotic
Although AFP and automated tape laying (ATL) lamination technologies are widely used in the aircraft industry, market conditions in the past few years are driving some changes in composites equipment supplier product lines. Consultant Carroll Grant explains why.

JEC Composites show produces flurry of composites news
Amber, Axson announce cooperation agreement; DSM, BÜFA launch two joint ventures; Hexcel will use Imperium ultrasonic cameras for NDI; Umeco reorganizes to create two primary business groups.

ATL and AFP: Defining the megatrends in composite aerostructures
Automated tape laying and automated fiber placement technologies take a key enabling role in production of today’s — and tomorrow’s — composite-airframed commercial jets.

Managing multi-axis manufacturing
Much early computer numerically controlled (CNC) machinery served short-run military and space programs where cost per part was too high to be acceptable in the manufacture of commercial aircraft. Now, Automated CNC machinery moves toward volume production and part-specific design.

Part-Purpose Manufacturing Simplifies Composite Part Production
The historically high cost of prepreg-based composite parts is often due to the painstaking hand layup that is required to create them. “It will be impossible to sustain composite part manufacturing levels that meet stringent quality standards if commercial OEMs rely only on manual labor,” contends John Melilli, VP of
