Exelis-LogoITT Exelis has expanded its Salt Lake City-based composite design and manufacturing facility as part of a multi-phase development plan intended to meet demand in the military and commercial aviation sectors.

Exelis installed an automated tape layer for the fiber placement and precision hand lay-up system to develop components for business aircraft and large commercial planes, the company said Tuesday.

The company develops wing skins, horizontal stabilizers and fuselage panels in Salt Lake City.

Composite structures serve as an alternative to metals for commercial and military aircraft manufacturers, according to Exelis.

The new site also houses autoclaves, machining centers and inspection equipment for these structures.
