We build trust by having open and honest communication and reaching those deadlines we set. We also have a unique business offering for technical centers, R&D facilities, and universities, where they are able to rent the system for any period of time (minimum 4 months) to test it out before deciding on a purchase. This allows them to get the system in their door without the need for a large CapEx budget and the freedom to experiment with technology they wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford. The system also creates high quality laminates, that would pass aerospace quality control. Anything that is used in aerospace industry is unreasonably expensive, so that’s where we separate ourselves from the competition.

Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) has become an increasingly popular method of manufacturing in composites R&D projects as well as production. In a process that was reserved for aerospace structures for more than two decades, more and more SMEs are able to gain access to the benefits of AFP, such as:

However, the physical tool is only half the equation. Programming the robot is done through a process called Offline Programming (OLP). A proper OLP software allows the user to visually and intuitively program the robot to perform the required task, as well as evaluate the outcome through animation with spacial recognition.
