Enabling mass-production of composite parts
THe new preforming technology
We have developed a technology capable of manufacturing complex carbon fiber parts with high productivity and fiber orientation quality
A breakthrough towards massive implementation of automotive & aerospace composites
High Fiber orientation quality
Almost any raw material:
Non Crimp Fabrics, Unidirectional, Dry / Prepreg, Conventional fabrics, Glass / Aramid / Carbon
Cycle time shorter than 1 min
Any lay-up configuration:
Quasi isotropic -45º/0º/90º/45º
Complex parts in 1 step
A part no longer requires to be divided into several sub-preforms
A 2D ply stack turned into a 3D Shape
in a matter of seconds
2D PLY STACKING
Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) or CNC Trimming
Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) or Prepreg Compression Molding (PCM)
The result: A high quality complex preform even with prepreg
- 30% part cost reduction
- Simplification of car factories: massive reduction of investment
- Enable the use of recycled plastics
- Reduction of car & aircraft CO2 emissions
- Enhance the electric vehicle market
- New markets opened for mass produced composite parts
AEON-T Composite Technologies is incubated by the Business Incubation Center of the European Space Agency (ESA BIC Madrid Region), and it is the result of more than 5 years of technology development in an ambituous research project together with leading research institutions in Madrid: Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and Institute IMDEA Materials.
The company has a clear mission: to industrialize production of lightweight composite parts in order to bring to the industry and the society the benefits of these materials: lower CO2 emissions in transportation, less fixed and investment costs in factories and increased range of electric vehicles.
Our new preforming technology makes this industrialization possible, allowing to manufacture complex parts in just seconds. While other state of art technologies such as double diafragm or press preforming bring up defects that forces designers to divide a complex parts in simpler elements, our technology avoid said defects producing the part at once. The result: a huge manufacturing simplification and part cost reduction.
Dr. Enrique Chacón
Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Technical University of Madrid, accumulates more than seven years of expertise in prototype development, collaborating with companies such as Repsol, Gamesa, John Deere or General Electric. He is co-founder of AEON-T, being responsible for the technical development of subsystems.
Automotive engineer by the Technische Universität München, he started his career in Audi, and accumulates more than 3 years building prototype cars with composite materials to participate in international competitions. Together with Prof. Enrique Chacón, he founded the research project SIRA in 2014 that was later transformed into the company AEON-T.
Mechanical engineer expert in industrial manufacturing and project management, with deep knowledge in IATF 16949 and ISO 9001 Quality Management Standards demanded by the industry. As a part of AEON-T, he is in charge of the industrialization of the progressive draping technology and its integration with other state of art technologies.
