Kitting stations

The KS-B100 reduces errors in lay-up order and pre-preg weights. It also reduces handling damage and particulate contamination. Ergonomically designed to maximize kitting efficiencies and increase lay-up throughput. The modular design fits many application layouts.

Advantages of the KS-B100

The C.A.PICARD kit station provides manufacturers the ability to greatly improve the productivity of their lamination process. The system is used to easily kit pre-preg and inner layers. Through the thoughtful ergonomic design, kitted lay-up is greatly simplified. The result is increased operator productivity, reduction of lay-up errors, handling damage, and particulate contamination.
