Manufacturing of a Composite Luggage Tool
(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)
Since 1983, we have been providing custom aerospace products based on customer-supplied designs. At West Cobb Engineering And Tool Inc., our solid reputation is reflected in our AS9100 REV C and ISO 9001:2008 certifications.
For this project, we were contracted by an aerospace customer to manufacture a composite tool for a luggage compartment. Our company was pleased to accept this project, and we began by creating a 2D CAD drawing using our customer's specifications. We employed our Gerber Cutter and vacuum bag molding capabilities to fabricate this tool from Airtech TMFP glass. It was then autoclave cured to Airtech specs, and finished with a Chemtrend sealer and release system. The completed tool measured 49" in length, 40" in width, 14" in height, and weighed 55 lbs. Vacuum integrity testing was performed to ensure that the tool was of the highest quality and met all the necessary standards. When all necessary finishing, testing, and inspection processes were completed, the composite luggage tool was shipped to our client in Wichita, Kansas.
