Development of a Ecological friendly final consolidation step using Thermoplastic Fibre Placement for a helicopter door

Objective

The rapidly growing use of high-performance composites in helicopter applications shows the clearly need to demonstrate eco-friendly processes for specific structural components, based on innovative processes. In order to achieve a step-change in the processing of highperformance thermoplastic composites in larger-volume applications, DEfcodoor focuses on achieving radical advances in the final consolidation step of integrated structures. Subcomponents and feasible articles will be realized using a new consolidation process using laser assisted TFP (thermoplastic fiber placement) and a thermoforming process. The new process will be demonstrated on technology feasibility articles including the post-consolidation of customized blanks and pre-consolidated parts. Validation will be carried out in a comprehensive test series and input data for Life Cycle Analysis tools will be supplied.
