Aerovac Kitting Services: Efficient Solutions for Manufacturing Complex Parts
In composite manufacturing, the preparation work can be as significant as the manufacturing process itself, requiring skilled technical operators to ensure the materials are tailored to fit the mold. As with any process that requires a hands-on approach, there is an ongoing opportunity to take steps to improve process inconsistency, quality variability, and efficiency of the operations for ultimate cost and resource savings.
Pre-cut for savings
Aerovac Composites One’s kitting solutions provide customers with pre-cut process materials from the wide range of vacuum bagging products manufactured and supplied by Aerovac. Kitting process materials are ideal for simple predetermined shapes and dimensions, as well as complex multi-layer integrated vacuum bag assemblies. By offering pre-cut solutions that require less handling, the result is better quality laminates along with health and safety improvements throughout the parts manufacturing process.
Kitting solutions are fully designed and supplied to meet customers’ specific requirements. With this added efficiency, customers can focus their efforts on core manufacturing needs while our experts take care of preparing and cutting consumables. Customized kitting solutions represent a real opportunity for cost and time savings for composites manufacturers in aerospace, wind energy, marine, and other industrial applications that require complex parts to high-volume production needs.
The wide range of process materials available for kitting offer benefits and applications that allow customers to optimize processes, increase productivity, improve quality of parts, and increase manufacturing efficiencies. Aerovac’s highly skilled engineers are well versed in designing complex, tailored kits, and bag assemblies to simplify the manufacturing process for composite structures, regardless of their size and quantity.
