Automated Dynamics' composite structures are most suited when solutions are needed to replace metal, reduce weight, isolate electronics, or offer a high level corrosion resistance.
Our continuous fiber/PEEK, PPS and other thermoplastic matrix parts have unmatched mechanical properties when compared to conventionally molded thermoplastic parts.
Automated Dynamics' composite production processes include fiber placement, filament winding, thermoforming, compression molding, autoclave and hand lay-up enabling it to manufacture a wide range of thermoplastic and thermoset composite structures in the most cost effective manner possible.
Advanced Thermoplastic Fiber Placement is our proprietary, patented technology which uses uni-directional pre-preg material (continuous fiber reinforcing in thermoplastic resin matrix) with high heat and pressure to consolidate the structure 'on the fly' (in-situ) or as it is manufactured. There is no post-processing (oven cure) which allows for greatly reduced residual stresses.
This technology allows us to orient the reinforcing fiber from 0 degree (axial) to 90 degrees (hoop) and anywhere in between. The result? A well-consolidated structure with excellent continuous fiber distribution and superior wet-out for a high quality, high performance part. And our robotic in-situ process provides the repeatability and accuracy you need for production runs.
Many structures in our photo gallery represent our fiber placement technology capabilities in both size and shape. We have also included a video gallery to help demonstrate the benefits of in-situ fiber placement. And lastly, there is a wealth of technical support at Automated Dynamics which is evident in the technical papers that are available for your review.
Automated Dynamics provides a wide range of products for the Aerospace, Industrial, Semiconductor and Oilfield markets and offer full engineering, proof of concept, material selection, development, prototyping, initial order and full production capabilities with over twenty years of proven experience and state-of-the-art technology.
