Airborne introduces Automated Preforming in composite manufacturing

Composites play a vital role in their potential to reduce vehicle mass. Whether for increased performance in the motorsport, luxury and premium segments, higher fuel economy for combustion vehicles, or weight offset and increased range for the fast growing battery or hydrogen market, composites are displacing metals as cost and production rate challenges are solved.

As frontrunner in automated solutions for composites manufacturing, Airborne (The Hague) has developed a fully automated and flexible manufacturing process for creating composite preforms in dry fibre and thermoplastic composite: the Automated Preforming system. For many moulding processes, a tailored blank is needed and to create this preform efficiently has been a bottleneck in the industry for a long time. With the unique Airborne Preforming technology customers will have the full freedom to create any shape of preform and benefit from the high output the system offers.
