The objective is to develop an innovative Stamping die concept based on a modular / reconfigurable and low cost approach for the manufacturing of aluminium hot stamped wing ribs ready to fly.
Technologies applied shall consider:
§ Economic and environmental sustainability: moulds at an affordable cost using materials and processes sustainable with the environment (e.g. less raw material)
§ Productivity: reliable moulds that allow increasing the productivity and reducing maintenance periods / costs.
§ Monitoring to control process parameters and also health monitoring of the mould itself.
Flexibility (different shape configurations of the mould), facilitate mounting and dismounting, customization and functionalization.
