A composite and engineering service team is dedicated to assist programming, operating and manufacturing process setup of your AFP Cell, and far beyond. We will support you from the reception of your AFP machine all the way to the manufacturing of your parts.
Learn how to operate the Coriolis AFP cell, manufacture parts and perform basic preventive maintenance.
The training program for your AFP machine:
/ Starting and stopping the cell
/ Navigating the operator interfaces
/ Manipulating the robot
/ Importing a program
/ Creating and modifying lay-up parameters
/ Carrying out manual and automatic probings
/ Performing a dry-run
/ Managing the spools
/ Laying up in automatic mode
/ Lay-up cycles and manufacturing orders
/ Resetting the numerical controller
/ Maintenance level 1
Coriolis Composites can provide programmer and operator assistance workshops: programming assistance, machine operation as well as serial production support. The expert team can also program parts on behalf of the clients directly with their original part design.
