ATL

ATL ‘Automated Tape Laying’ technology is an industrial process in which a continuous strip of pre-impregnated material is deposited and added to the surface of a mould in a specific direction, building up several layers in different orientations. We are capable of offer highly customised solutions to meet clients’ enquiries, guaranteeing maximum quality and reliability. Markets where this technology has taken off are aerospace, automotive and the military.

The AFP ‘Automated Fiber Placement’ process is an advanced technology that enables the production of high-strength and lightweight components using a deposition technique like ATL, but with some fundamental differences. Due to its high efficiency and precision, AFP is ideal for manufacturing of components with complex shapes, difficult to achieve with other conventional processes. To ensure high-quality of the final product, we can achieve optimal repeatability with ideal deposition accuracy.

TFP Seagull Evtol

Through research and development, we have succeeded in developing the innovative TFP technology ‘Towpreg Fibre Placement’, which consists in parallel deposition of several impregnated carbon-fiber tows on a mould. With this solution, it will be possible to process both thermoset and thermoplastic composite materials, taking modularity of the heat sources and deposition head into account.
