Fiber Patch Placement – Innovation
in composite automation

Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) enables a new combination of productivity, flexibility and costs. This technology offers efficiency even at low volumes through flexible and scalable automation. Adapted to the size and complexity of a component, the technology works additively in “sensible increments”, so called fiber patches. This enables automation for complex 3D shapes, multi-material laminates and locally reinforcements, resulting in efficient lightweight solutions with a remarkably improved buy-to-fly ratio, also due to the low process related material scrap.


Your benefits with FPP

100% Raw material and placement control

20% – 60% Cost saving compared to hand lay-up

Multi-material Lay-up capabilities (carbon, glass, adhesives, etc.)
