FIRST-TIER SUPPLIERS & AIRCRAFT BUILDERS
Autonational Composites’ filament winders, production lines and special machinery can help first-tier suppliers of composite parts to reduce their scrap (improved yield) and deliver higher quality and cheaper components to aircraft builders. The combination of specifically designed test and rework equipment with full Track & Traceability guarantees an optimal price-quality ratio and prevents the possibility of failures.
Advanced Composite Products for Aerospace applications
Composite fuel pipes, (flap) actuator shafts, control rods, struts, cones, launchers, canisters, and other cylindrical shapes are ideal to produce by our modular filament winding technology. Aerospace Manufacturers increasingly use advanced composite materials (containing fiber of glass, carbon, kevlar, etc.) to save weight and increase fuel efficiency. Also, RFID technology is increasingly integrated into high-end composite parts.
FILAMENT WINDING MACHINES & PRODUCTION LINES
Autonational Composites has experience with the development, design and manufacturing of production, testing and re-work equipment for high-volume, high-specification composite parts for aircrafts. Our expertise is filament winding but we are competent to automate any process (if possible). Our winding technology has been designed to wind non-cylindrical or asymmetric composite products as well. We have experience with validation processes of both composite part and production process & production line.
Autonational Composites has developed special tooling & molds to produce high-end complex shaped structural profiles and beams, suitable for serial production of thermoplastic prepreg composite products by use of Autoclave molding. We developed also production line concepts for semi-automated serial production of high-specification structural profiles and beams made of (thermoplastic) prepreg composite materials.
