PAC Group design, manufacture and install carbon composite preformers and resin transfer infusion systems, which have been purchased by globally leading automotive and aerospace companies, such as McLaren, Bombardier and Spirit AeroSystems.
The Group holds 42 patents on the hardware and software, which is used in the production of carbon composite structures and components – reducing the number of component parts, overall manufacture time, and energy consumption during manufacture in comparison to traditional techniques. The machines are an integral part of the manufacture process of the Airbus A220 wings, the first time a certified commercial aircraft wing has been made using resin transfer infusion. The composite wings are 10% lighter than their metal counterpart, which reduces fuel use in flight and contributes to a reduction in carbon emissions.
