Thanks to the Starplast process developed to manufacture glazing for helicopters and airplanes, Vitalo is able to manufacture translucid parts in very large dimensions, and with very good optical quality, in polycarbonate or PMMA. We know how to make parts up to 4.5 meters long by 2 meters wide and 1 meter high and to cut them with a 5-axis robot.

OEM key requirements:
  • Optical Quality
  • Mastery of the process, from the acceptance control of the material to the final control of the manufactured parts
  • High dimensional accuracy
  • Implementation of specific organization to adapt to the seasonality of the market
The Vitalo response:
  • Co-design and Co-Engineering
  • Development of material specification with increased UV resistance
  • Process specific to Starplast
  • Trimming on 5-axis robot
  • Investment in appropriate resources
