Quilted Stratum Processes (QSP) for low cost and eco thermoplastic manufacturing of complex composite parts


The QSP provides low material scrap, short cure cycle, competitive cost, multi-thickness part and multi-orientation part in comparison to traditional thermoplastic processes. This "no-scrap" approach is highly eco-friendly with cure cycle times in the order of a few minutes and allows multi-material assembly. This call is for the manufacture and evaluation (including an assessment of the life cycle costs) of a high quality thermoplastic window frame for a regional aircraft fuselage.
