ACE (Applied Composites Engineering) are now exclusive PlyMatch agents for North America, bringing PlyMatch closer to US composite manufacturers.
PlyMatch is a technology ensuring accurate ply placement for hand lay-up manufacturing of composite parts, produced by Anaglyph. Part software/part hardware, PlyMatch is designed to replace or complement traditional ply placement aids, as it overcomes their limitations when it comes to highly curved or complex shapes. Additionally, the system can video record the ply placement procedure for quality control. PlyMatch has already been adopted by a number of manufacturers of composite parts in automotive and aerospace.
