Cgtech, the developer of Vericut CNC simulation, verification and optimisation software, has joined Wichita State University’s National Institute of Aviation Research (NIAR) to participate in Automated Technologies Laboratory for Advanced Structures (ATLAS). ATLAS investigates development of manufacturing protocols for AFP and ATL for aircraft systems.

The partnership between Cgtech and NIAR combines Vericut’s programming and simulation capabilities for automated fiber placement (AFP) and automated tape laying (ATL) with ATLAS’s advanced robotics capabilities, including a thermoplastics-capable Coriolis robot and an EI AFP robot, said Cgtech in a press release.

“Working with NIAR will help leverage our expertise in AFP and ATL manufacturing,” said CGTech’s Composites product manager, Andre Colvin. “Together with the ATLAS programme, we will advance the capabilities of advanced automated composites manufacturing.”

“Partnership with CGTech enables us to develop a multi-disciplinary manufacturing environment and an engineering education programme to prepare engineers and educators for the factory of the future and to aid the current workforce in seamlessly adapting to advancements in the workplace,” said Dr. Waruna Seneviratne, director of ATLAS.

ATLAS recently received a $2 million grant contract from the US Economic Development Association to develop and demonstrate advanced composite material manufacturing technology. (PC)
