Abstract:
A closing of the gap between the unit costs of composite parts and those of the competing metal parts as demanded by the market for years can best be achieved through use of automated systems. A unique automation solution for the production of composite parts is the Continuous Composite Preforming System (CCPS) by BROETJE-Automation (BA). This system permits the automated, continuous production of 3D shaped and curved composite profiles such as those requiredfor the frames and stringers of modern aircraft. At present such components can only be produced in a very time-intensive sequential manual or semi-automated process. The newly developed system provides a fully automated preforming process for curved profiles to ensure a cost efficient solution for composite frame production.
