Automated Dynamics’ New Thermoset Fiber Placement Head

23 March 2001

Automated Dynamics has introduced a new 12 tow thermoset fiber placement head for aerospace and industrial applications.

The new fiber placement head can place up to 12 thermoset tows (0.125 in/3.175mm tow width) simultaneously. Each tow can be started and cut individually while the head is in operation on the tool, thereby allowing greater design flexibility and reduced part weight and material usage. The new fiber placement head can be supplied on a number of commercially available platforms including filament winders, gantries and articulated arms. New software capable of handling designs from a number of different CAD packages is supplied with the new fiber placement head. Interested parties should contact Mr. James Martin, Automated Dynamics, 407 Front Street, Schenectady, New York, USA, 12305; phone: 1-518-377-6471; fax: 1-518-377-5628; Automated Dynamics is a supplier of thermoset and thermoplastic fiber placement equipment to many of the major companies in the world .
