AEC designs, develops and manufactures a full portfolio of composite materials, products, and technologies. The core strength of our technologies is that we have the ability to control fiber reinforcement positioning and distribution – and thus strength and material properties – throughout each product that we design. This capability enables us to engineer composite products to meet specific functional requirements – be they complex load bearing requirements, thermal needs, specialized acoustic performance or a mix of properties. With this flexibility, our products can meet performance targets that are unattainable with conventional laminated composite or metallic components.
Our engineered solutions include and combine:
complex multi-direction reinforced and 3D woven composite products
non-traditional and traditional laminates, or 2D woven composites
complex geometry fabrication capabilities
steered woven, contour woven, and braided structures
sandwich reinforced structures
discrete through thickness reinforcement materials and technologies
preform and conventional fabric or pre-preg layup
multiple curing methods including RTM, VaRTM, autoclave, press, compression & oven cure processes
Our experience has shown that the most successful development and implementation of highly engineered composite products occurs when we have been able to develop strong partnerships with our customers. This approach ensures more open communications with those customers, which reduces product development cycle times and results in products that better fit our customers’ needs.
