Composites Australia is delighted to provide suppliers and manufacturers with the opportunity to tour Australia’s first automated composites manufacturing research facility, recently opened at UNSW Australia.  Featuring ATL (automated tape laying) and AFP (automated fibre placement) capabilities, a major focus of the new facility is to facilitate industry access, enabling the Australian composites industry to develop automated manufacturing capability.

The development of automated manufacturing capability in Australia has lagged significantly behind other nations, and is further complicated by the lack of industry and research access to a suitable development facility. UNSW Australia led a successful bid involving 19 Australian and international research institutions and two commercial companies to build a new facility with ATL (automated tape laying) and AFP (automated fibre placement) capabilities.

Presentations will detail the opportunities for industry to access the resources of this facility, the likely directions for automated composites manufacture in the near term and the aims of the partner research organisations.

This will be followed by a tour of the facility and networking over refreshments.  Composites Australia is extremely grateful to the UNSW Australia for providing this opportunity.
