Composite and Metal Bonding
The Atlas Group has a lead position in the engineering and manufacturing of structural composite assemblies for aerospace critical applications. Atlas produces metallic and composite aerostructures for military, commercial, business and private airplanes and helicopters.
The company ensures the use of the latest industry technology and equipment for the production of composite parts, and control of composite time and temperature materials. Composite parts can be built from an existing design or modified if required, or a new composite solution can be designed to suit. The use of innovative materials is tailored to fit a customers specific needs and challenges.
Metallic parts, skins and honeycomb cores are prepared and treated prior to bonding and assembly. The assembly is then cured at a specific temperature and pressure using autoclaves prior to final assembly and the application of finish paint.
