Carbon Fibre Composite Autoclaves and Curing Ovens

Composite Autoclaves

Sistem Teknik specialises in manufacturing autoclaves for the curing of fiber and reinforced honeycomb matrix composite materials. Having produced some of the largest autoclaves ever manufactured in the world, we guarantee 21 bar and 450 °C operating values for the production of thermoset and thermoplastic composite materials. P 355GH high temperature carbon steel is used in autoclave bodies are designed according to the AD 2000 Code standard. 

As we apply the Curing Performance Monitoring System, the liquid, gel, and hardening phases of the resin can be monitored in real time for both composite autoclaves and curing ovens. With the patented semi-axial fan design we developed for autoclaves, ± 1.5 °C temperature tolerance can be provided easily during operation. 

Sistem Teknik’s autoclaves have become crucial for the civil and military aviation and space sectors as they are used in the production of BOEING 787, AIRBUS A350, AIRBUS A330, JSF F35, SIKORSKY S-76, MH -60, BOMBARDIER, AGUSTA AW139 as well as for domestic satellite production.

Composite Curing Ovens

Sistem Teknik produces composite curing technologies with the most advanced designs and analysis tools in accordance with specific customer requirements. Our strong know-how on composite systems allows us to meet the critical quality and persistency requirements of aerospace and defense industries. Our composite curing ovens (CCOs) comply with the AMS standards and meet the ones determined by our customers. 

Thermal curing processes for thermoset and thermoplastic materials can be carried out in CCOs cost-effectively. Multi-section vertical air flow systems grant excellent temperature uniformity. Part-based multi-point temperature measurement system allows for the control and regulation of the temperature of each part with the state-of-the-art mathematical model-based control system.

The complex quality reporting system follows every detail about production and prevents any mismatched quality requirements. Batch and recipe management systems with the integrated data redundancy system are also designed to control every detail of the curing process.
