Advanced composite technologies for complex ad integrated aerospace parts
Coordinator : Sonaca
UCL promotors : Christian Bailly (IMCN / BSMA), Thomas Pardoen (IMMC)
The global objective of TECCOMA includes the development of a comprehensive set of technologies needed for large scale substitution of metallic parts by composite ones in aeronautical applications. The innovation centers on the design of integrated parts and the development of the necessary processing technologies and tools. The goal is to shorten product cycle times through the integration of structures within the curing cycles, leading to simplified subsequent assembly, but also integration of new functionalities, process automation, optimization of RTM and SQRTM cycle times, automation and reduction of non-destructive inspection protocols.
