Making Data Work for Carbon Composite Manufacturing

NLign Analytics software is the only data management tool designed exclusively for the unique challenges of carbon composite manufacturers. Vast amounts of data from the molding, curing, and inspection processes can be mapped to 3D models, making short work of analysis tasks that have traditionally delayed production for days, weeks, or even months.

NLign can automatically collect aircraft inspection data from NDI equipment, digital images, SAP systems, paper forms, and other process data. Sophisticated mapping tools make this consolidated data archive easy to view and analyze in two- and three-dimensional formats, dramatically reducing the time needed for reporting, trending, and coverage checking.

First pass yield improvements and other cost reductions realized by current partners suggest that NLign Analytics software offers a savings of as much as $5-$10 million per year.

The Future of Aerospace Composite Manufacturing

  • Full inspection confirmation

    Gaps in scan data are easy to spot, eliminating costly last-minute inspections.

  • Fast trend detection

    3D mapping enables quick analysis of multiple parts for trends and other meta-information. Early-stage problem detection offers millions of dollars in savings.

  • Improved first pass yield

    Streamlined root cause analysis and quick trend detection strengthen quality control, accelerating your time to market.
