AAT Award Achieved
AAT Composites won Silver at the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Awards which formed part of The African Advanced Manufacturing and Composites Show held in Port Elizabeth, 7-8 November 2018.
We received the prize for the following: Polymer 3D printed autoclave moulds for use in the aerospace industry. Historically the prepreg is imported in a -18Deg cold chain. Has just a few days working life at room temp, tricky when making large moulds/parts. The project aimed to 3D print autoclavable moulds. There are fewer steps and enhanced lead times with the 3D printed mould and costing just 60% of the prepreg mould manufacture process.
