Automated Dynamics issued patent for composite lightning strike solution
The manufacturer of composite structures and automated fiber placement (AFP) and automated tape laying (ATL) equipment, announces that they issued the patent that covers methods to automate incorporation of lighting strike protection layers into composite structures.
This development promises to lower production costs throughout several industries where such protection is necessary, including but not limited to: aerospace, oil and gas, wind energy, and countless others.
“The necessary trend toward lower density LSP solutions have complicated integration of an automated manufacturing solution,” said Ralph Marcario, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Automated Dynamics. “This technology enables automation of this critical step and provides significant improvements in production time and dramatic decreases in production cost.”
