Facilities

At Aerodine, we can boast the best in up-to-date facilities tailored to suit the demanding needs of manufacturing advanced composite materials. Our original 15,000ft² adaptable facility contains the following areas:

White Layup Room
This area is for cutting, layup and bonding. All critical areas in the whiter layup room are Foreign Object and Debris (FOD) controlled.

Dedicated Areas
Our dedicated areas are self-contained to limit dust and other forms of contamination through process isolation and dust extraction. Facilities within these areas include:

  • 5-axis tooling and foam router
  • Demolding
  • Trimming
  • Machining
  • Frozen Storage

Processing composites can be a challenging process, and heat can cause unfinished material to degrade. Therefore our materials are kept at extremely cold temperatures until formed and finished for assembly. This area contains a 63in x 40in x 85in Walk-In Freezer and multiple chest freezers.

Coming Online Soon

New Larger Facility
Our new 50,000 ft² facility (currently still under construction) contains 34,000 ft² of climate-controlled production area and is located just minutes away from our current facility. Once complete, we will have:

  • An additional clean Room
  • A paint room
  • Dust extraction facilities
  • A 10′ x 14′ x 8′ industrial freezer
  • A chiller
  • A Kuka Arm Robot for precision manufacture
