FACC Selects MAG's CHARGER™ SFTL And ACES® Software

Erlanger, Ky.-based MAG IAS LLC — a global developer of automation technologies for the production of composite structures, and a supplier of machine tools and manufacturing automation systems for durable goods applications — reports that Austria-based FACC AG — a Tier-1 supplier of composite components to the aerospace industry — has purchased a CHARGER™ small flat tape layer (SFTL) and MAG's modular Advanced Composites Environment Suite (ACES®) software for tape laying and fiber placement.

The Charger SFTL features a bed-type configuration; integral vacuum layup table; MAG's CM100 computer control designed for automated composite production; and a simplified, versatile tape head that consistently compacts layers of carbon/epoxy tape, according to the company. The head enables quick, easy side-loading of tape rolls measuring up to 300 millimeters (mm) wide and 650 mm in diameter, and layup of 150- and 300-mm-wide tape with minimal changeover time. The tape head also features tape flaw detection, integrated ultrasonic laminate cutter, laser trace inspection and cutter depth-setting assistance.

MAG's personal-computer-based ACES software supplies a range of path generation types and supports part programming, part simulations, productivity analysis and production animations to verify that a part can be produced before shop-floor production begins.

MAG will ship the SFTL system to FACC in the first quarter of 2013 and will finish installation by May.
