Simulation

Get your part's production simulation with AFP - just send a part file (Non-disclosure Agreement) or request for a trial license for simulation software.

Turbofan

01. Turbofan

Most of today's airliners are powered by turbofans. Such engines have many components and we will focus on the components that are made using continuous fiber composites.

02. Feasiability and Resource

Complex geometrical shape made using composite require feasiability and resources estimation before proceding to invest in the resources

Collision

03. Hydrogen Tank

Going into green economy requires storing the H2 in lightweight and extremely safe tanks overboard. See how such a tank can be made with tape winding.

Material Evaluation

Developing a new material and would like to run the production trial with AFP?

 

01. Thermoplastic

Thermoplastics, like metals, softening and melting as more heat is applied, and re-hardening with cooling.

02. Dry Fiber

RTM and VARTM require the placement of dry fiber without excessive manual labor. Addcomposites's AFP-XS is the first AFP being used for placing cross-weaved fiber tapes with a hot-air gun.

Pilots

Run a pilot production with AFP to evaluate the capability at Addcomposites facility or virtually using AddPath.

01. Snowboard Manufacture

The current manufacturing process is analyzed and compared to an automated approach using Addcomposites' solutions. 

02. Hands-on Experience

Students were able to access AddPath during the COVID lockdown and further their education of advanced manufacturing technology.
