Automating the layup of advanced composites has never been easier.
Begin production on the day of arrival.
Implement aerospace-grade manufacturing into your production line for the duration you need. The plug and place methodology behind the AFP-XS allows for same-day installation, calibration, and production. Sounds unbelievable, but the AFP-XS was designed for just that. This is the only AFP system that is capable of being employed for the duration of a specific project or for continuous production.
High Quality, Repeatedly
The AFP-XS is derived from the high standards of aerospace quality, delivered in a package for SME's and R&D applications. Vigorous tests prove the AFP-XS offers:
+ Gaps less than 2mm, without overlaps
+ Pass beginning and ending within +/- 2.5mm
+ Speeds up to 1m/s
Compact & Versatile
The Plug and Place capability of the AFP-XS is made possible by its size and versatility. The benefits of the system can be realized through:
+ Small size
+ 16.5 kg weight
+ Mounts to a wider range of robots
+ Dismount easily, experience robotic freedom
One Tool; Different Applications
AFP is traditionally deployed in aerospace applications for wingspans and fuselages. We enable smarter manufacturing for SME's working in different areas:
+ Space: dish antennas and satellite structures
+ Auto: door panels and spoilers
+ Marine: hydrofoils and masts
+ Sports: Snowboards and paddles
