Project Details


The project aims at designing and manufacturing a batch of composite panels incorporating thermoplastic composite window frames (for regional airplane) made following an innovative manufacturing process, called QSP that allows lighter mass with cheaper cost and shorter manufacturing cycle time of parts than existing processes. The project will contribute to the reduction of the environmental impact: - Weight saving of parts manufactured by the use of net shape and multi-thickness preforms with the right material at the right place, will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions. - Significant reduction of waste material by exploiting the composite at the maximum of its possibilities. It will help the industrials to be more efficient and performant: the above points automatically result in cheaper cost of the parts (less expensive material used by a better exploitation of materials, less composite waste implies therefore a better valorization of costly noble materials).
