Shanghai Aircraft has selected the MAG Charger low-rail gantry composite tape layer to produce main wings, stabilizers, and central wing boxes for COMAC C919 and C929 commercial passenger jets. The tape layer deposits composite tape at industry-leading speeds, while achieving aerospace grade-placement accuracies on complex contours. The machines lay 75-, 150-, or 300-mm carbon/epoxy tape with any orientation and number of plies, over tool surfaces with contours, flats, and changing geometries, producing consistent quality, part shape, thickness, and strength. MAG-designed controls and software make the multi-axis movements easy to program and control. ACES programming software translates CAD or CATIA tooling and laminate data into multi-axis machine commands. The platform is designed with high structural stiffness for good reliability and fast, accurate lay-up.
