Innovative mould for thermoplastic skin of the lower fuselage demonstrator


Research for an innovative mould is needed for efficient high volume production of the thermoplastic fuselage skin. This call topic aims to develop such mould for skin consolidation in autoclave, including automated lay-up, assembly, and transport for the large lower fuselage demonstrator. The heated and cooled mould is aimed to be used as well for smaller demonstrators, including out-of-autoclave consolidation (e.g. in-situ). Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
