Agile Ultrasonics is focused on enabling advancements in advanced material applications while replacing existing composite manufacturing processes. Several problems exist with established industry best practices. One challenge is air becoming trapped between layers of composites as they are formed. This causes critical components in armor, aerospace and automotive to be overbuilt to compensate, making them heavier and more expensive than necessary. Agile Ultrasonics eliminates 99.9% of all air pockets during the layup process.
