AVIO COMPOSITE SRL
Aeronautics Composites Division
AVIO COMPOSITE SRL is specialised in producing products in composite laminates and plastic. It was established in 2010 and has a 500 square-meter plant with ten operational units and personnel with 25 years experience in the aerospace composites sector.
The company is divided into two principal sectors:
– producing end-to-end composite products, involving special processes (lamination, polymer processing and finishing)
– mechanical trimming and drilling processes using traditional methods
The majority of the materials used, have a limited life span and must be conserved at low temperatures in an industrial cold room. The -18°C cold room has a 12 square-meter capacity, while the 0°C cold room has a 10 square-meter capacity.
The lamination phase takes place in a 120 square-meter clean room that is certified by AleniaAermacchi: JST-D-105 (EF2000 CFC PROCESS SPECIFICATION).
The clean room is pressurised with temperature and humidity control.
The PANINI autoclave is certified by AleniaAermacchi: JST-D-105.
General notes on the machinery: effective diameter 1.6 meters; effective length 4.5 meters; design pressure 10 bar; working temperature 200 °C; data is recorded through a Eurotherm software review (3.11.7 version); data is inalienable and encrypted.
Autoclave equipment: 1 temperature sensor; 1 pressure transmitter; 2 ambient temperature sensors; 12 product temperature sensors; 1 autoclave pressure transmitter; 10 bag connection pressure transmitters; 10 bag connection pressure gauges.
The finishing phase takes place in an aspirated area.
For the trimming and drilling, traditional machinery is used, otherwise production is out-sourced.
Stress tests and dimension reports are outsourced.
