Complex Cores for New Utilities

Project description

New tooling parts promise to make aerospace composite production less costly and complex

Resin transfer moulding is a closed-mould process for manufacturing high-performance composite components. It is a process suited for short and medium production runs and is employed in many different fields including the aerospace. The conventional process utilises multi-part metal core tools, which make it complex and costly. The EU-funded CoCoNut project will replace the use of metallic cores with water-soluble materials. Successful proof of principle of this technology on a large scale will enable the technology to move from technology readiness level three to six. Comparison of legacy technology based on metallic cores with the CoCoNut solution will enable researchers to prove the value of the latter for the production of aerospace composites.
