Airborne is a technology leader in advanced composites, specialised in the industrialisation of engineering and manufacturing of durable fiber reinforced composites for Space, Aeronautics and Marine industries. With their 20 years heritage in composites, they provide their clients with high-end composite solutions either directly through advanced manufacturing of components or by developing industrialisation packages which are implemented at manufacturers of choice. Airborne’s focus is on high-end composite components, at high production rates at radically low conversion costs.
As the demand for industrialisation of composite production of small ‘table-sized’ parts is growing exponentially, Airborne brings the composites industry to the next level by applying digital manufacturing. Through a digital platform they connect predictive material engineering, product engineering, process engineering, dynamic machine programming and quality assurance. To shape the new composites future, Airborne has opened its Digital Factory Composites Field Lab in 2015 with partners Siemens and Kuka. During the lecture you will find out more about the digital factory but there will also be an opportunity to share your opinion on how you think that simulation of composite materials and the production process can be coupled to good control systems in the entire assembly process, possibly by making use of machine learning. Using machine learning in assembly processes that require the delivery of high quality products is not as straightforward as generally believed. We are curious about your view on this!
