Prototyping & Industrialization

From CAD data to workshop gate, a composite product typically undergoes multiple production and assembly steps, which should all be properly monitored. At CCS, we rely on state-of-the-art machines and the strength of our network to deliver high-performance parts. We are working with advanced composite processes to bring your projects to life, such as Automated Fiber Placement (AFP), Braiding, Tailored Fiber Placement (TFP), Vacuum Assisted Process (VAP), pre-preg layups, etc. For additional information, consult our Technologies section. Our manufacturing activites include:

Composite Prototyping

  • Processes implementation based on composite engineering
  • Robotic end-effector design
  • Prototyping and delivery of small size series
  • In-house Advanced Manufacturing: robotic process (KUKA arm), advanced preforming and infusion methods (TFP and VAP®), prepregs
  • Network of close partners for other Advanced Manufacturing processes: autoclave, AFP, FPP, Braiding, Filament Winding
  • Fastening systems engineering (bonded and bolted joints)
