Fiber Patch Placement, a solution for the automated production of complex composite parts, convinced the jury. The additive fiber layup technology enables the automated production of complex fiber composites, and therefore extends the industrial application of composite lightweight technology to more and more components.
The 2019 edition of Industry of the Future Challenge was organized by ArianeGroup, Issy-les-Moulineaux/France, Atos SE, Bezons/France, and SKF, Gothenburg/Sweden, in partnership with Techniques de l'Ingénieur magazine. The challenge was set up to promote industry 4.0 solutions that make tomorrow’s industrial production smarter, the materials used more sustainable, and thus increase the potential of tomorrow’s industrial facilities.
