New Product from HEATCON Could Help Revolutionize the Repair of Composite Materials

april 16 2012

HEATCON Composite Systems has launched a new product that improves process control in the complex repair and manufacturing of composite materials. The network controller is designed to maintain uniform temperatures as multiple hot bonders are used to repair large areas of composite parts.

Hot bonders, heat blankets and other equipment from Seattle-based HEATCON are used to repair composite aircraft components that require bonding processes. The network controller was designed to address advanced repair designs required for the newest airplanes and helicopters. The increased use of composites for commercial airlines has created a need for equipment to address the challenge of ensuring proper cure cycles over large repair areas, which supports processes from manufacturers and regulatory agencies as they become approved.

The geometrically complex shapes in later generation aircraft, which use increasing amounts of composite materials, will require more sophisticated repairs. Many of these advanced repair techniques can be better addressed using the network controller.
