DANOBAT is developing highly specialised solutions to automate manufacturing with dry composite material.
According to DANOBAT, it’s ADMP Automated Dry Material Placement is a proprietary technology used to automate the deposit of dry resin infused fabric to create a composite part, such as a wing skin or frame.
Asier Gandarías Mintegi, Chief Executive Officer of DANOBAT, said, “Current manufacturing processes for prepreg are labour intensive and costly. Using dry material we can manufacture highly integrated composite structures while reducing assembly costs, and replacing manual steps with automation. As a result, we can deposit fabric at a rate 100 times faster than current processes, we’ve also reduced material costs by 50 per cent. These are extremely significant results which have been demonstrated to work, and this is only the beginning. Our goal is to create more solutions that will shape industries with advanced automation. As a niche player we have the drive, knowledge and flexibility to build solutions that will turn the composites industry on its head.”
