EMOTION - Enhanced Mould for Thermoplastic Fuselage in and out of Autoclave Consolidation
This project aims to develop our innovative mould for efficient high-volume production of thermoplastic fuselage skin. Within the work of this project, first a process and mould will be developed for in autoclave consolidation, including automated layup, assembly, and transport. Second a mould usable for out of autoclave consolidation e.g. in situ consolidation with enhanced functionality for heating and cooling will be developed. Consolidation of thermoplastics at process temperatures of 400°C new challenges, such as large thermal expansion, temperature stability of sealings and cables. However, it offers opportunities to reduce significantly the cycle time and energy consumption, thereby improving the competitiveness.
