The basic definition of "composites" is a combination of unique, individual elements - fiber and matrix to create a lightweight and strong component. 

For higher rates of manufacturing, we introduce some of the equipment-intensive processes, such as LRTM and VARTM among others.

With the advancement of the robotic technology, we discuss the different levels of automation, its associated parameters and requirements. 

Taking full advantages of the composite materials' mechanical properties with the different reinforcements and matrices available.

For larger or more complex shapes, this is where positive, as well as negative pressure, considered as "heavy machinery" - includes presses and high-pressure machinery work. 

Addcomposites now offers other services - anywhere from cell design to material evaluation and more. Let us help you to achieve your goals. 

The most common method of manufacturing is a manual method called hand layup - done without shifting the fiber due to the directional strength discussed previously.

Together we explore the benefits of pick-and-place robots aiding in the manufacturing process without the risk of injury for humans. 

Manufacturing has seen a major shift due to advent of new material, computational processing technology and an increasing adoption of these technology.
