The Centre de development des composites du Quebec (CDCQ) at Cage Saint-Jerome (Quebec, Canada) has installed an automated fiber placement (AFP) robotic cell developed by automation specialist Effman (Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada) with the help of the FANUC robot and AFP head from Addcomposites (Espoo, Finland).
