Plyform Composites & CMS: case study

29/mar/2019

Plyform Composites and CMS have established a profitable and effective collaborative relationship for both parties.  

To secure a highly modular and efficient product, Plyform Composites has relied on CMS experience, gained over years of manufacturing special machines, suitable for the most diverse needs of customers.

The choice fell on Antares, the machining center with 5 interpolated axesand a monobloc structure.

Plyform Composites is a company established in the 70s and has now asserted itself as a leading company in the Aerospace (both helicopter and fixed wing) industry. The need to process components made of composite materials led the company to choose CMS, leader in the sector.
