Complete Automation for Composite Preforms

FibreLINE automates the entire preform process for the manufacture of composite structures. It provides a radical increase in the production rate for aerostructures, wind turbines, automotive parts, train carriages and more.

This high-rate composite manufacturing system is comprised of our next-generation robotic end effectors and automation solutions. At the centre are both FibreFORM and FibreROLL, capable of picking and placing large carbon fibre pieces with millimetric accuracy without damaging the material. They do so at deposition rates up to an order of magnitude greater than traditional methods. FibreLINE is based on our suite of products and available in configurations that meet different customer requirements.

Key capabilities

Delivers unrivalled composite material deposition rates of up to 200kg per hour.


Provides millimetric precision and repeatability when measuring, cutting, shaping and placing material.


Handles large plies without damaging them which drastically reduces number of components in manufacturing.


FibreLINE is available in different layouts and configurations for both small and large structures.

FibreLINE is configured from our suite of products:


State-of-the-art end effector that picks composite sheets (plies), forms them into a multitude of complex 3D double curvature profiles and places them at incredible speed.


Pick and place of composite material using storage rollers. Capable of transferring large plies up to 20m long despite being smaller than similar automated systems.


A comprehensive system for sorting, sequencing and storing composite plies. Designed for optimal material utilisation to save time and money.


A modular composite tacking system designed to secure plies in place during layup process.


A cutting-edge inspection system that uses triangulation techniques to ensure integrity of the composite material during the preforming stage.


An ultrasonic system designed to make high quality cuts on composite material.


An offline programming tool that simulates and configures the pick and place of composite plies.

FibreLINE 2X1

FibreLINE 2X1 provides composites automation for smaller parts than our standard FibreLINE system. Using a single robot equipped with an automatic tool changer, the system uses a variety of our products to complete the preforming process. It is ideal for the production of carbon fibre car parts, train doors and aircraft wing components such as fairings, ailerons, nacelles, cowlings and wing tips.

From deposition and cutting through to shaping, tacking and consolidation, this system lays up on to a 2 metre x 1 metre tool, making it a compelling option for manufacturers looking for a compact and affordable solution.
