The curing process for composite materials carried out in Roaches autoclaves is fully controlled by the PC based Adaptive Control System (ACS) that has been developed over many years. Using ACS software all the parameters involved in the cycle such as temperature, pressure and vacuum can be programmed and controlled to the most precise level
and accurately repeated week after week.

Vacuum levels on each individual zone can be monitored and
controlled and in the case of bag leakages which can result in a drop in vacuum to critical levels, can be isolated, preventing the failure of other components that may be in the same cure process.

The accurate control of all these variables is critical to get the repeatable qualities required in the manufactured components and parts.
