Airborne Introduces The World’s First Portal to Print Composites Parts

September 30 2019

Airborne has created the world’s first portal to design and print composite parts, produced by industrial and qualified automated manufacturing systems. Instead of using new processes like 3D printing that are still under development, Airborne wants to enable printing with existing, industry-proven and qualified automated manufacturing processes.

Airborne has created a web-based platform where anyone can design composite parts and get direct feedback on performance and price. With this feedback the user can optimize the design for his or her specific use-case and order the part. The first application of the portal is for thermoset laminates manufactured in prepreg material by the Automated Laminating Cell (ALC) technology of Airborne. Airborne plans to add its other automated solutions to this portal as well. This robotized system combines three functionalities in one system. The first is to create the laminate by Automated Tape Laying. The second step is to cut the laminate into the required shapes and this can be used to nest multiple parts in one larger laminate. The third step is pick & place which can be used to place local patches on the laminate, or to combine sub-laminates into new, larger structures.
