Composites embrace mass production
Composite materials have been widely adopted across varied industry sectors. A major reason is that they are extremely lightweight. This is great for aerospace and automotive manufacturers looking to boost their fuel efficiency. However, current manufacturing methods need to be scaled to make composite parts part of regular production. AEON-T, a spinoff of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, was one of the ten finalists in the JEC World completion who showcased innovative composite projects. Now with EU funding of the SIRA project, the company is introducing its SIRA machine in the manufacturing line of the leading composite producer company Voith Composites. The machine is paving the way for mass production of composites for automotive and aerospace applications.
