Demands on automated tape laying and fiber placement machines are growing. As parts become more complex, cost pressures are mounting, while environmental concerns are increasingly impacting business decisions. Composite manufacturing lines need machines that maximize productivity, flexibility and material efficiency, while reducing costs.
Our hybrid ATL/AFP machines step up to meet these challenges. Delivering exceptional flexibility – for example, with the dual-process Cincinnati GEMINI – and high speeds, as with the highly-configurable multi-lane Lund SLALOM ATL. We’re also pushing the boundaries of innovation with our MADRAS dry fiber solution. In short, we’re taking performance to the next level.
ONE PLATFORM, TWO PROCESSES
Combining automated tape laying and fiber placement applications into one machine, the Cincinnati GEMINI provides unmatched economy and flexibility. Switch seamlessly between ATL and AFP processes – even within the same ply – while achieving accuracy and repeatability.
CUSTOMIZABLE MULTI-LANE ATL
Laying from one to 27 lanes at a time, the Lund SLALOM delivers high repeatability and precision - at speed. In fact, it works at up to triple the rate of standard CTLMs. It’s also highly customizable to your specific needs. So whatever configuration you need for your composite manufacturing line, we can engineer a solution that fits.
DRY FIBER COMPOSITE MANUFACTURING
The MADRAS dry fiber machine is a highly-innovative solution for increasing production rates of large, lightweight parts. Developed originally for aerospace components, this machine can revolutionize the manufacture of wing components. But it’s equally suited to other industries with similar requirements, including renewable energy, automotive, shipyard and rail.
