Intelligent Composite Flexible Tooling System

Technology Overview

Intelligent Composite Flexible Tooling System.
Intelligent Composite Flexible Tooling System.

The machining process for composites currently requires a fixture to support and clamp parts. Different types of parts need specific fixtures, which increases manufacturing costs. The flexible tooling system technology developed by ITRI uses an ideal CAD model and optimized software to generate flexible holding fixtures for composite material parts with variable supporting pitch. The machine tool company CMS has already developed a customized flexible tooling system solution which makes use of such fixtures. ITRI technology provides an improved solution for composite parts with anti-deformation optimization function to maintain deformation below 0.5 mm and reduce production line change times by more than 70%; it is therefore highly useful for machine tool companies operating in the composite manufacturing equipment market, doubling the selling price for machine tools while leading the way for product upgrades in the market.
