Starburst and Cevotec collaborate

The global aerospace accelerator Starburst with offices in Los Angeles, Paris, Munich and Singapore identifies jointly with leading Aerospace corporates promising startups. Munich-based Fiber Patch Placement technology company Cevotec has been selected as an innovation leader and will be supported by Starburst going forward.

“Our business model, and above all our production system based on the Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) technology, convinced the Starburst team,” reports Thorsten Gröne, CEO of 2015 founded Cevotec. Cevotec offers the preforming system SAMBA, a fully automatic and quality-monitored solution for the serial production of complex fiber components. To complete the package for composite manufacturers, Cevotec provides ARTIST STUDIO, an integrated CAD-CAM software platform that significantly simplifies and shortens product development cycles.

„Together with the most prominent aerospace accelerator for start-ups, we now look forward to establish the advanced fiber preforming technology in the aviation sector”, adds Gröne. The partners are eagerly awaiting the JEC World 2017 in Paris at end of March. At the world’s largest trade fair for composites, the preforming system SAMBA and the CAD-CAM software ARTIST STUDIO will have their official product launch.
