|Composite manufacturing Airbus start-up is now part of TESTIA, an Airbus Company, complementing its
portfolio of Aerostructures inspection services and products|
As of September 19th 2018, InFactory Solutions has been incorporated into TESTIA, an Airbus Company, with a newly appointed Managing Director, Mr Mohamed Sayeh.
Created in 2016, InFactory Solutions specializes in in-process control for composite manufacturing with a focus on two major technologies:
AFP (Automated Fiber Placement) Monitoring
CFF (Cure & Flow front) Monitoring
David Rottembourg, Managing Director of TESTIA, an Airbus Company says: “ Of course complementing our offer to the benefit of our customers is the obvious rationale, but just as importantly we are welcoming unique competences and talents in the fields of machine learning, mechatronics and data analytics. ”
This acquisition is a strategic move for TESTIA, an Airbus Company as InFactory will add to its current portfolio focused on post-process control products and equipment. Thanks to this addition, TESTIA, an Airbus Company aims to ultimately correlate Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) data with manufacturing data, enabling step changes in manufacturing process control. InFactory was originally a start-up nurtured by Airbus’ Chief Technology Office before its incorporation into the subsidiary TESTIA, an Airbus Company.
