Case Study: Ultra High Rate Composite Deposition System for NCC
The National Composites Centre (NCC) needed a way to revolutionise the production of commercial aircraft wings; to build wings 10 times faster than what was possible with existing methods. The system also needed to be flexible, to provide opportunities for other applications and sectors.
Loop Technology, with support from consortium partners Güdel and Coriolis, designed, manufactured, installed, and commissioned the Ultra High Rate Composite Deposition system. The system can process components up to 20m x 5m x 1.5m in size – one of the largest of its kind in the world.
