Hitco Carbon Composites Inc. of Gardena, CA, a subsidiary of SGL Group, on Jan. 26 announced it had entered into a long-term strategic agreement with Denel Saab Aerostructures Ltd., a subsidiary of South African and Swedish aerospace manufacturers, to collaborate in composite components manufacturing for the Embraer C-390 military transport aircraft. Denel Saab and Hitco intend to produce composite components such as the aft fuselage. Enhanced, automated manufacturing solutions will be employed. Hitco took delivery of a Viper 6000 automated fiber placement machine in October 2008 from Mag Cincinnati. That machine complements Hitco's existing automated tape-laying equipment.
