JEC World, Paris, March 7, 2018 – Airborne and Gunnar are entering a business partnership for developing and supplying integrated automated ply cutting, handling, stacking and sorting solutions for composites and advanced materials. With this partnership, fully integrated systems can be offered to the composite manufacturing industry, enabling maximized composite material utilization at highest process secureness.

Airborne and Gunnar officially seal their partnership during the JEC World 2018.

Business Partnership
A partnership between the two companies is a logical step in the development of fully integrated systems as Airborne’s and Gunnar’s core competences are very complementary. Airborne’s expertise is the development and supply of automated and digital composite manufacturing solutions whereas Gunnar’s core competence is the process of composites cutting, including the peripherals of material feeding and nesting. Joining their strengths by partnering will enable an overall automated cutting solution to the global composites market, offering their customers significant cost reduction as static and dynamic nesting of plies can be fully optimized while the integrated system will operate at the highest level of process secureness.

Same roadmap for composites manufacturing processes
“Airborne and Gunnar envisioned the same roadmap for automated and digital composite manufacturing processes,” said Arno van Mourik, CEO Airborne. “By partnering we are able to offer our customers turnkey fully integrated cutting and kitting solutions based on a modular and scalable concept for highest process flexibility at a minimized footprint leading to significant cost reductions.”

Andreas Weissenberger, CEO of Gunnar, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Airborne as we got many positive feedback and interest from the market already. Integrated automatic manufacturing solutions are key to ensure maximum process secureness.”

The signing ceremony will take place at 11AM CET at the Airborne stand: F6, Hall 6.
