Abstract

In order to meet the repetability and reliability required to tape-lay aircraft structures, the BMO Group has developed an automated tape layup system composed of two machines working in succession.

The first machine cuts the tape courses for complete part and store them in tape reel cassette.

The second machine lays the cuts from the cassette onto the mold at high speed.

Examples of productivity and accuracy achieved by this technology are given in this paper.
