Composite Processing System
MAG IAS (Erlanger, KY) addresses the aerospace industry's drive for economy and flexibility in composites processing by introducing the new GEMINI Composite Processing System, capable of switching in a matter of minutes from automated fiber placement to automated tape laying. The new system utilizes MAG's VIPER® automated fiber placement head, and CHARGER™ or the Forest Liné ATLAS automated tape laying heads. Head docking cradles outside the workzone allow efficient offline setup or maintenance of heads while the machine can continue to produce parts. Head changing requires about two minutes. A new wireless control pendant gives the operator greater freedom and convenience in working with the system.
