Depending on the customer required specifications, Loiretech design and manufacture special purpose machines for a large range of applications. Most of them are focused on automated assembling, trimming or inspection operations.
A few typical examples are listed below :
Dry preform cutting machine
This machine has been designed to ensure the precise trimming of dry carbon preforms after forming operations to remove extra material. The cutting is performed by special knifes actuated by high pressure pneumatic cylinders. The machine cycle time is nearly 20 seconds and compatible with high rate operations.
Stringers assembling machine
This machine has been designed to ensure the acurate bonding of stringers into a composite fuselage panel. The main dimensions of this tooling are 6 meter long by 4meter wide. It is able to assemble at the same time a set of 50 stringers.
This machine has been designed to assemble inside equipment on both side panels of a fuselage section.
