Our automated solutions are efficient, easy to use and fully digital. We put all our composite
manufacturing know-how into the design of the systems and into the software, to deliver you an automated process that is reliable and fast, with the right quality. We offer a portfolio of standard solutions and can also develop a dedicated industrial manufacturing system for you.
Airborne Space is leading the way in the development and manufacturing of composite panels for satellites. Through industrialisation, digital and automated manufacturing and applying smart production process technologies, we are making spacecraft components more affordable for our customers.
Thermoplastic materials have tremendous potential for applications in many industries, but the lack of efficient manufacturing can hold back implementation. Airborne solves this challenge by offering automated thermoplastic processing systems for high volume and flexible, low- to medium volume applications.
Many companies need support in understanding the many interdependencies inherent in designing and manufacturing a composite product. Airborne gives support throughout the industrialisation journey – from concept to automated production.
Our Automated Kitting solution delivers fully sorted and sequenced composite ply kits to increase productivity, improve material utilisation and reduce work preparation.
Our Honeycomb Potting solution enables easy manufacturing of locally reinforced honeycomb sandwich panels, while reducing work preparation, material waste and the cost of quality.
Our Automated Laminating solution is a multifunctional system that combines robotised tape laying, laminate cutting and pick & place. It is much more affordable than conventional systems, has a small footprint and can easily be adapted depending on requirements.
Many composite forming processes such as press consolidation, press forming, vacuum forming or diaphragm forming are based on the use of tailored 2D preforms or blanks. By automating the production of preforms, you can match the rate of follow-on processes and significantly reduce manual labour.
We have developed a plug and play kitting & sorting system for composite plies. The system is offered in variants:
Our Automated Honeycomb Potting system automatically applies potting material for local reinforcements in honeycomb sandwich panels. The system is offered in three standard offerings:
