Enabling Efficiencies in Composite Part Manufacture

Composite parts help reduce aircraft fuel costs and emissions while enabling longer flights and lower maintenance as compared to aluminum. The percentage of composites content by weight in aircraft continues to increase, examples include the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A350 at greater than 50% composite materials. Now composite part manufacturers can become more efficient and deliver even higher value to their customers through Wesco Composite Management Services.

Wesco Composite Management Services provide aerospace manufacturers with both highly efficient process material and structural pre-preg kits for simple to complex parts. Our kits include a custom vacuum bagging system and dynamically nested structural kits that reduce material usage, process times and labor, while enabling composites part producers to fulfill the significant increase in demand. We deploy proprietary software for dynamic nesting, batch traceability and material life management, adding efficiencies and reducing your capital outlay.
