During the negotiations with the Company management the problem of extending cooperation in the field of composite materials and structures production modernization was considered. In particular, it was decided to purchase an up-to-date installation for automated layering of tape-based prepregs. The parties fixed the date of starting the production of machine parts, preliminary tests and the date of putting the installation into operation (autumn of 2014).
ORPE Technologiya has already had experience of cooperation with MICROSAM. Last year the specialists of the Company modernized the installation Waldrich Siegen (Germany) at ORPE Technologiya. This has made it possible to refuse manual layering of prepregs and to lay up large-sized PCM components with the curved surface.
Both a new equipment and a modernized installation Waldrich Siegen will be used in the batch production of CFRP tailplane components for MS-21 aircraft.
