Application: Composite manufacturing system and method (Patent ID: US20230415429A1)

The patent filed by The Boeing Co. describes a composite manufacturing system that includes a lamination tool with locating targets and a computer-aided measurement system to generate master surface-data and master target-data. The system uses a computing device to establish a spatial relationship between the target-data and surface-data, allowing for precise measurements and associations with the lamination tool. The system also includes a numerical control composite placement machine to perform composite placement operations based on the data generated by the computer-aided measurement system, ensuring accurate and efficient manufacturing processes.

Furthermore, the patent outlines a method for composite manufacturing that involves measuring targets and line profiles of a lamination surface, generating master surface-data and master target-data, and creating a master file to establish spatial relationships. The method also includes dividing the master file into zones, remeasuring targets, determining profile positions, comparing deviations, and compensating for any discrepancies during the composite placement operation. Additionally, the method involves inspecting the composite laminate formed on the lamination surface and identifying anomalies, allowing for targeted adjustments and improvements in the manufacturing process. Overall, the patent details a comprehensive system and method for composite manufacturing that prioritizes precision, efficiency, and quality control throughout the production process.
