Introduction to Automated Fibre Placement

Monday, 03 Feb 2020

Offering greater precision, repeatable processes and quicker cycle-times, Advanced Manufacturing processes like Automated Fibre Placement are growing in popularity.

This is a highly interactive course, which uses the NCC's very own state-of-art equipment to introduce delegates to advanced manufacturing techniques.  You'll learn more about the equipment, the processes and their application.

What we'll cover

  • Advanced manufacturing technologies
  • Materials used for advanced manufacture
  • Applications in industry
  • AFP and how it works
  • Automated Deposition technologies (Accudyne, Coriolis Composites, Electroimpact & our Ultra High Rate Deposition cell)
  • The differences between AFP and commercial machines
  • Using a multi-materials decision making tool
  • How to approach a complex part
  • Dry fibre processes for AFP

Who should attend

We recommend this course for delegates who are familiar with composites, but want to develop a better understanding of advanced manufacturing techniques


  • 1 day


  • Individual price: £400
  • Closed Course (up to 10): £3,200
