Goodrich Aircraft Wheels and Brakes manufactures carbon-carbon composite brake disks for use on commercial and military aircraft. ME-6’s primary project focus is in the beginning fabrication of the composite brakes, specifically increasing efficiency and building on the previous projects to implement automation in the textile department. Through the use of a double bobbin fixture over a single bobbin fixture, we aim to increase line efficiency while still maintaining and improving current ergonomics for operators and seamlessly integrating with the current and new systems.
