Quatro Composites Provides Panels for Use in Drill Qualification

16 December 2007

Quatro Composites has been awarded three contracts to supply carbon fibre panels to airframers and tier 1 suppliers for drill qualification and assembly training. ""As the airplane manufacturers make the radical shift from aluminium to carbon composite materials for the primary structure, much support is required to address the new techniques of drilling, fastening and bonding."" said Steve Roesner, Chief Operating Officer at Quatro Composites. Quatro supports the manufacturers of composite fuselage and wing skins by supplying carbon/epoxy panels that are built to the aircraft manufacturer's process specifications . In an effort to meet increased demand, Quatro has recently added an additional 30% of manufacturing space to its Orange City, Iowa facility for the manufacture of carbon fiber panels, as well as structural aerospace composite brackets. “Quatro’s expertise, enthusiasm and flexibility allow them to rapidly respond to customer’s requirements and to provide cost-effective solutions,” says Tom Yip of Boeing Phantom Works. Most of the panels Quatro produces are made with Toray T800 carbon epoxy prepreg.
