Engineering and consulting for composite parts

 

Missions

Our experts, engineers and technicians, assist you in your composite projects.

They are involved in short or long term projects, working closely with your design department, industrialisation, and R&D department.

composite prototyping From the technico-economical study to the development of prototype parts or series, we provide to our customers:

  • The definition and drafting of specifications, including objectives and constraints of the part;
  • The development and achievement of art's states of composite's progress for the intended application;
  • The study and the choice of materials and methods are able to respond to customer requirements - Techno-economic study, selection of materials and processes meet the best compromise between technical, economic, quality, qualification ... Achievement of FMECA
  • The definition and implementation of the experience plan for validation
  • Implementation of a pyramid test plan, from the coupons to the implementation of the part, scale 1.

These programs also include the accompanying, implementation of demonstrators, pre series and the definition of the associated methods / ranges.
These test campaigns can be carried out on our site. We have implemented TD / VT  means and a composite testing laboratory.

  • The support to industrialization
  • Support to the selection of suppliers / subcontractors. 
  • Achieving File Industrial Validation
  • Training - Our team is also able to train you in the implementation of different manufacturing processes on our means or on your site. Contact us. AIC is also accredited Research Tax Credit and training organization.
