    Cut the prepregs,
    To create pieces of "infinite" length thanks to an automatic conveying system,
    Plate the fabrics during the cutting with a vacuum pump,


The dimensions of our machine are as follows:

    Cutting table: 1m90 x 1m30
    Table picking - kitting: 1m90 x 1m30


21.07.2017 / On the handlebars of a solar bike, students from Issoire (63) will cross Norway

A small lightweight panel, less than 4 kilos ...


This panel is primarily intended for use by the military and will allow troops in operational theaters, such as Afghanistan, to be fully autonomous. The General Directorate of Armaments needed solar panels on the roofs of the tents of the military, notably to light them at night or to cool them down. But also to equip other equipment, such as drone and radars.


Before being used thus, solar panels have a more playful function. They feed an electric bicycle, that of the high school students of Sévigné in Issoire. With, they will try to cross Norway. They will be eighteen students to take up this challenge in July 2018. Meanwhile, they test and prepare their bike.


Four students and their teacher decided to leave Issoire to join Arlanc where the headquarters of the company that creates the solar panel is located. It was designed at the premises of the company Auvergne 2CA or Concept Composites Auvergne. The panel is designed with a honeycomb material, it has the distinction of being ultra light and very robust.

11.05.2017 / Acquisition of a portable 3D CREAFORM Handyscan 700 scanner

2CA is able to offer you today from the services of 3D digitization or 3D digitization, Photogrammetry, dimensional control and / or retro engineering.


All or almost all projects are developed on 3D software, and engineers are confronted with interface concerns between different parts of a set.

Digitization or 3D digitization is one of the solutions that makes adjustments easier.

Optimization requirements mean that adjustments between these various parts are increasingly tight, on certain projects, some elements do not have their 3D equivalent and taking dimensions on complex surfaces, remains with conventional tools, very complicated to relieve.


For measurements of a body, an aeronautical assembly, etc ... Photogrammetry coupled with laser scanning offers fast and accurate possibilities for dimensional rib survey or even re-construction (retro design, or retro engenierie ) In digital format of surfaces directly on most CAD software.


This equipment, based on dynamic optical triangulation coupled with a laser scanner, offers the possibility of acquiring a point cloud (scan), thus recreating the mesh surface with an accuracy of less than 3 hundredths.

In the case of a large volume to be digitized, photogrammetry allows us to quickly read the position of a multitude of points of an element or a set of elements, such as a body ...

This lightweight, portable and flexible equipment adapts easily to different situations and allows the digitization or digitization and then the retro design of mold, body, casing, model, prototype, event elements of small or large cut...

Based near Clermont-Ferrand, we can move easily and quickly, for on-site scanning.


20.04.2017 / 2CA now has a 2.5 kW Prima Platino laser cutting

This ensures the realization of sheet metal and thin sheet metalworking, especially for working sheet metal (all steels, stainless steel, aluminum ...)


We produce in-house the metallic and metallic parts necessary for the realization of your assemblies and parts of high precision.


Cutting, punching, forming, bending, riveting and painting are carried out in our sheet metal workshop.


Our ever-evolving machinery and the experience of our teams allow us to save time in implementation and quality to deliver high-performance finished products.

13.03.2017 / Revolutionary photovoltaic panel to equip the bike

The Journal LA MONTAGNE Issoire of March 13, 2017, publishes an article "A revolutionary photovoltaic panel to equip the bike"


High school students will be at the forefront of technology with their bikes.


It will be equipped with a revolutionary photovoltaic panel, Operasol, three times lighter than a conventional panel. It was designed and is about to be industrialized by 2CA, based in Arlanc. Its director, Gilles Duissard, himself presented this innovation to the students in the company of Isabelle Moniot, co-director of Rexiaa group, of which 2CA is a member.


"Everything started from a need of the Directorate General of Armaments to equip the tents of the soldiers of solar panels, to gain space when they are in Mali or in Afghanistan", relates Gilles Duissard.


Robust and effective, the panel is distinguished especially by its very low weight. And this, thanks to the use of composite materials, specialty of the company 2CA. "Our first order is for shelter containing rations for the military. The panels will power the air conditioning. "


Drones, radars, roofs ... Operasol is brought to equip everything that needs lightness. On the other hand, its price, 10 times higher than a Chinese panel, makes it difficult to market it to private individuals.


The high school students of Sévigné are therefore little lucky. The meeting between Gilles Duissard was made through Isabelle Moniot, whose son participates in the adventure. The company manager gladly agreed to help the students. A visit of the company 2CA is also on the program.

"The objective is also to give them a taste for the industry," emphasizes Gilles Duissard. They like technology, they get caught up in the game. We'll follow them. "
