Development of innovative welding systems for structural joints of Thermoplastic matrix based Composites


The objective of the topic is to achieve a structural bond of small/medium reinforcement parts to the primary structural elements to achieve highly integrated subassemblies. Reinforcement is made of Carbon fibre with thermoplastic matrix. The welding systems shall be capable of welding different types of Thermoplastics and shall be energy efficient, quick in execution, minimal tool dependant and able to be inspected with current state of the art non-destructive technologies.Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
