FibreKIT

Composite ply storage and kitting system

Other Products

The best kit on the composite market

Our ply kitting systems are designed for use in combination with one of our robot or gantry mounted deposition systems.

Nested plies of carbon fibre can be picked from the cutting table or conveyor and sorted into discrete kits in reverse lay-up order. Each part of the kit is logged via a RFID system so its position is known.

Specific and bespoke designs available to your particular requirements while considering the fibre deposition system being used.

Key capabilities
FULL TRACEABILITY

Fully programmable RFID system can be used to track contents including Kit IDs, missing plies and ply life data.

EASY TO INTEGRATE

Our system can be run fully automated or operator assisted to suit your needs.

PORTABLE

Portable models are available with simple and highly accurate positioning systems.

Storage Options

Available for storing flat plies or a more compact rolled solution. This is dependent on the deposition method selected.
