The experimental platform designed in this paper can simulate process of the ATL machine, including variable rates and forces the composite prepreg tape laid up. Thanks to the closed loops, the platform is able to ensure the accuracy of the rate and force. As the control unit of the apparatus, PLC has a capacity to deal with signals to meet the needs of the apparatus, such as controlling the rate and the force the prepreg tape laid up and the safety of the platform when wrong operations occur.
