The purpose of the Core Manufacturing Cell is to develop concepts in manufacturing ranging across the potential spectrum of routing, drilling, laser ablation (suitable guarding required at a later stage) part assembly (Ply layup) and beyond.
This is a multi-function cell which will be primarily used to test core member concepts and processes. With this firmly in mind the flexibility and capability of the cell is key to delivering the core members aspirations.
This is an R&D cell in an R&D facility but here the emphasis is on productionisation of and development of conceptual manufacturing processes. To this end the cell must be specified as a manufacturing cell.
