The newest innovation from Ingersoll is the “domes on” capability of the Ingersoll Automated Fiber Placement Machine (AFPM).

The latest generation Ingersoll AFPM can place material completely over the end of a part rotating on the centerline of the headstock and tailstock, making it possible to create composite fuel tanks, and other barrel-shaped objects, complete with integral domes. This particular machine feature is currently not available on any other fiber placement machine in the world.
