Implementing Digital Manufacturing is the latest trend, but what does it mean in practice and how can you use it for composites? Find out how digital manufacturing can enhance your composite parts production, whether that means creating that crucial edge over your competitor, or making manufacturing much easier for yourselves.
In composites prodution it’s vital to reduce waste, both from cost and environmental perspective. If we zoom in on the cutting & kitting operation, we discover that Automation unlocks the potential of smart nesting and optimisation algorithms to minimise the material waste. Want to know more?

Using our proprietary Automated Kitting solutions have many advantages, and this webinar will answer questions such as: What is Automated Kitting? How can I determine if it is the right solution for me? What are the benefits that I can expect for my production?
In this paper we take a look at the traditional kitting process and the opportunities for and advantages of automating the kitting process. And, as a next step, we discuss how the automated kitting process could be extended to include pre-forming as well.
We have developed a plug and play kitting & sorting system for composite plies. The system is offered in variants:
Interested in how to improve your potting work stream? Whether you produce interior parts or structural components using honeycomb material, this is the webinar for you. We discuss a great way to improve your local reinforcement application or edge sealing process.
Our Automated Honeycomb Potting system automatically applies potting material for local reinforcements in honeycomb sandwich panels. The system is offered in three standard offerings:
Our Automated Honeycomb Potting solution is designed to fill honeycomb blanks efficiently and accurately with potting compound.
Implementing Digital Manufacturing is the latest trend, but what does it mean in practice and how can you use it for composites? In this webinar you will find out more about the digital capabilities we developed at Airborne and how to use them in actual cases. The webinar contains a demo of one of our capabilities: the Automated Laminating Cell which will give more insights in digital production in action.
Our Automated Laminating Cell 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.
Our Automated Laminating solution is a low-cost platform that combines three functionalities: tape laying, laminate cutting and pick & place for offloading the laminates to the next process step.
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. Although the forming processes are usually efficiently automated, the blanks or preforms going into these processes are often produced manually. By automating the production of preforms, you can match the rate of follow-on processes and significantly reduce manual labour.
To reduce touch labor and to radically improve clean room efficiencies, our automated ply picking and sorting solution places the cut composite plies into kits in the right order.
In the space market, there is an increasing demand for small satellites: in the next decade many thousands of these smallsats must find their way into Earth orbit. But without access to launch, how can newspace companies get their smallsats to space and meet demand?
As European market leader of substrate panels, find out how we make spacecraft components much more affordable while increasing quality as well as production rates.
In the space market, there is an increasing demand for access to space for small satellites. In this video Space Business Unit Director Sandor Woldendorp explains how this demands new and affordable launching solutions.
