Airtech has introduced its Airsweep R2, a composite laminating tool for placement of prepregs and fabrics onto moulds.

According to Airtech, Airsweep R2 has been ergonomically designed to fit the hand more comfortably, so even pressure can be applied into sharp corners easily with reduced operator fatigue. Airsweep R2 is manufactured from abrasion resistant non-contaminating UHMW PE.

The benefits are described as:  

  • Apply even pressure accurately to tight corners to eliminate fabric bridging and avoid part rework.

  • Handle design applies palm pressure, reducing finger fatigue.

  • Non-contaminating material avoids FOD in layups.
