Industrialization with Apodius
for the future of the fiber composite lightweight construction
Apodius knows the characteristics of composite material precisely and supports your industrialization projects with measuring and inspection technology for quality assurance and direct process improvement.
With measuring technology for FRP to industrial success
High component costs so far prevented the breakthrough of fiber composite materials in series production. In addition to the fibers themselves manufacturing processes currently used are responsible for most of the component costs. The basic requirement for significant cost reductions is to further automate processes that have been derived from the common manual production for small series composite products. Apodius pursues the goal to provide the necessary measurement technology for automated fiber composite production and thus replace the current manual operations by capable processes. Our customers have already been experiencing today, that in addition to the reduction in their cycle times, especially reproducible component quality and thus the scrap and rework rates are minimized. Upon reaching stable processes a consistent lightweight technology becomes possible – the previously required over-dimensioning of components can be reduced. Last but not least lead raw material and time savings to an immediately more efficient production.
Apodius at Experience Composites in Augsburg
Thank you for visiting the Apodius booth at Experience Composites in Augsburg.
Apodius presented new solutions for three-dimensional part digitalisation such as the innovative AVS 3D PORTABLE as well as the hand-guided AVS 3D COBOT. These AVS 3D systems on new carriers broaden the scope of the known AVS product family by adding new dimensions of safety, user-friendliness and flexibility.
The AVS 3D PORTABLE allows the user to digitalise and evaluate every part geometry and carbon fiber surface in order to measure fiber orientations and detect defects without the use of robots and their time-consuming offline programming.
The collaborative AVS 3D COBOT system not only guarantees a safe cooperation between humans and robots, but also increases the measurement quality due to its self-aligning functions and high accuracy.
Quality in automation drives productivity

Winner of JEC Innovation Award: "Apodius Vision System for 3D Composite Inspection
Apodius was able to prevail the competition proclaimed by JEC and wins the for the composite industry most important innovation award. The AVS 3D convinced the jury in the category "Quality Control" regarding all selection criteria, eg. technical excellence, exemplarity of the chain of partners, market potential, and originality. The JEC innovation program takes place for already 17 years and is a highly regarded awards program. Among a total of 1,800 participating companies worldwide, Apodius is now one of 177 winning companies that have proven their capacity for innovation through significant developments.
Product innovation AVS 3
Apodius introduces the innovative measuring system AVS 3D, which enables the complete digitization of large preforms and components for analysis measurements. Captured geometries are wrapped with the component's surface texture. Fiber orientations are calculated, compared with reference values and color-coded in case of deviation.
