Smart Susceptor system makes repairs easier through advances in control and heating technology–as well as enables repair that previously were not possible.
a new aircraft composite repair system that enables repairs that were not previously possible with traditional hot bonding technology. The Smart Susceptor uses self-regulating heat blanket technology to improve thermal uniformity within composite curing, ensures that composite materials are properly cured and repaired.
“Existing composite repair equipment relies heavily on technician experience to achieve temperature uniformity when repairing complex structures on new aircraft models such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350,” says “We are excited to announce the introduction of our Smart Susceptor technology that helps make the technician’s job easier by incorporating advances in control and heating technology for these types of repairs.”
the Smart Susceptor system includes a full kit of accessories and the company’s hot bonder software. The system is offered with several available heat blanket designs in various sizes and temperatures, which are sold separately. Although the system is more expensive than a traditional hot bonding system, “pays for itself by enabling repairs to be performed which would not be possible otherwise.”
