Double vacuum bagging – the engineering challenge

One technique used to make composites (or “laminates”) is called “double vacuum bagging”. Thanks to this method, extremely light and strong composite materials can be manufactured, used for high stake applications like those in the (aero)space industry.

Double vacuum bagging forms the composite, while shaping the material at the same time. The laminates are manufactured by applying heat, pressure and vacuum in exactly the right quantities. This means stable flows of heat and vacuum are indispensable.
 
Thanks to Atlas Copco’s centralized vacuum systems and integrated monitoring equipment, all the crucial parameters can be kept in check at all times.
