Cevotec and Composite automation launch an innovative composite additive manufacturing technology
Cevotec, Munich-based Fiber Patch Placement specialist has signed an agreement with Composite Automation, to implement an innovative composite additive manufacturing technology on the North American market.
This partnership will aim to develop existing process technologies for fiber composites to North American manufacturers. “We are very happy to have John Melilli and his team at Composite Automation to introduce the benefits of patch technology to every composite manufacturer in North America. As a result of the positive feedback we received at CAMX 2017, we became convinced of the need to have a proactive presence in North America and Composite Automation is laser-focused on the markets we are pursuing”, states Thorsten Groene, Managing Director of Cevotec GmbH.

The process demonstrates that there is a clear demand for automation solutions in the composites industry. Increasing throughput, first pass quality, reducing waste and reducing reliance on touch labor are some of the key elements that enable to discover innovative automation solutions.
Based on additive patch technology, Cevotec’s composites-4.0-approach integrates a powerful software suite and focuses on especially complex parts.
“The full properties of the part are known before the part is manufactured. Reliable throughputs and material usage are empirically understood. This data is part of the justification for a machine acquisition”, adds John Melilli. “Fiber Patch Placement is a must-have technology for companies that want to be ahead of their competitors in the manufacture of composite parts.”
