Hawthorn Composites (Xenia, Ohio, U.S.), a division of Spintech Holdings Inc. that specializes in manufacturing of low-cost composite moldings and assemblies, reports that it successfully achieved AS-9100D and ISO 9001:2015 certifications on March 19, 2021.

Hawthorn Composites combines low-cost raw materials (dry fiber and liquid resin), resin infusion techniques, automated dry fiber preforms and over braiding and novel manufacturing methods to deliver aerospace-quality composites at price points that are said to be significantly lower than can be obtained using traditional manufacturing methods (see "Braided preforms and resin infusion for next-generation aerocomposites").

Using a combination of real-time document control and digital work instructions, Hawthorn Composites reports that it has established a completely digital workspace for manufacturing and eliminated the use of paper for all processes. This combination reduces waste, increases efficiency and improves quality.
