“This machine fills a major void in the composites manufacturing market by providing economical, scalable solutions to small composites labs,” says Robert Langone, president of Automated Dynamics.

“It is designed to be wheeled through a standard door and is plug-in ready.”

The Research Workcell, a simplified version of Automated Dynamics’ AFP equipment, is said to be ideal for material testing of non-complex, small thermoplastic parts, including cylinders, flat panels and rings.

“No other machine offers the flexibility for smaller manufacturers and researchers to achieve results applicable to productions,” says Langone.

“It is built specifically for the research environment, is low cost and requires minimal training.”

Automated Dynamics is currently using a Research Workcell at its Schenectady, New York, manufacturing facility to support R&D projects involving a variety of heat sources and materials.
