MTorres has reached an agreement with GKN Aerospace to supply Automated Fiber Placement machines (AFP), TORRESFIBERLAYUP, to manufacture the composite A-350 wing rear spar

The AFP machines will be installed at GKN Aerospace’s recently acquired facility in Filton (UK).

Mr. Juan Solano, Sales Director at M Torres said “We believe the high productivity level that TORRESFIBERLAYUP offers has led GKN Aerospace to select our Automatic Fibre Placement Technology.
This is the first time that AFP technology is going to be used in the manufacture of wing spars components, saving process time and reducing overall cost.

This agreement strengthens even further the M. Torres position as a world leading supplier of advanced composite manufacturing equipment for the aerospace industry.
