AG Composites – Technology
AG Composites (AGC) specializes in the design, development, and production of high-performance composite parts. The technology behind our products is based upon modern design, test, and production technologies.
AG Composites uses Solidworks 3D CAD software to virtually design each part and mold we make. The use of advanced CAD software allows AGC to explore mechanical design options and thoroughly investigate the mechanical characteristics of telescope designs before any carbon fiber fabric is cut or metal machined. This approach helps AG Composites reduce design complexity when appropriate and design systems that can be repeatedly manufactured and assembled to high levels of precision and tolerance.
Carbon Fiber Components
Behind each AG Composite part is a commitment to uncompromising quality and best-in-class customer service. Rigorous testing and quality control processes ensure that each and every AGC part will meet our customer’s requirements while respecting your budget and schedule objectives.
Materials and Processes
AG Composites uses dry and prepreg carbon fiber materials manufactured by reliable, established industry leaders. The wide palette of modern chopped, woven, and milled materials allow AG Composites to select the best material for your application.
AG Composites uses vacuum bagging and high pressure bladder molding processes. Our expertise in these composite manufacturing techniques allows our customers to focus on the design, feature, and performance requirements of their part rather than worry how it will be made.
Machining and Fabrication
AG Optical System owns a 3200 ft2 facility which houses CNC and manual maching equipment to include a vertical machining center, lathe, manual milling maching, and computer controled curing oven. Our in-house machining capabilities allow AG Composites to rapidly develop custom parts while keeping over-head costs low.
