Improvement of shaping systems for the deposition of semi-molten materials, applicable mainly to plastic, metallic or mixed materials (plastic, metallic, ceramic and inorganic). The FUSE3D project develops new technologies for the deposition of semi-molten material with the aim to improve the adhesion between layers of material and increasing its strength, combining [...]



New manufacturing process that allows to use high-performance thermoplastic matrix composite materials reinforced with carbon fibre in the regional aircraft construction. The utilization of these thermoplastic matrix composite materials in the construction of regional aircrafts is limited due to the complexity of forming of these materials and the high costs that [...]



Development of regional aircraft thermoplastic composite windows frames using advanced and innovative industrial processes and Out of Autoclave composite manufacturing (OOA – alternative to autoclave process commonly applied for the aeronautic industry for producing high performance composite materials) with the aim of reducing the weight of the window frames and their [...]



New manufacturing process for carbon fibre fuselage frames to be able to apply these materials in the construction of regional aircrafts. The new manufacturing process developed by COFRARE 2020 marks a new milestone for the aeronautical European industry and for the construction of lighter and more sustainable planes, through the integration [...]



Development of new models and methods to improve the design capabilities of the hybrid boxes, such as the wings of the airplanes, formed by metallic panels and composite materials components. INNOHYBOX project, coordinated by Eurecat, investigates the thermo-mechanical behaviour of hybrid boxes with the purpose to optimize them by developing a [...]



Innovative and affordable solutions for advanced car body shells manufacturing and lightweight material strategies for railways, innovative doors and train modularity. The CARBODIN project, coordinated by Eurecat, has the objective to contribute to the next generation of passenger trains that will be lighter and more energy and cost efficient than the [...]



AMFEED aims to design and manufacture new materials to be used with additive manufacturing techniques to create metal and ceramic parts characterised by their controlled porosity level through sintering processes. These pieces are designed for high-added-value applications, such as healthcare or microelectronics. The project uses methods based on the FFF (Fused [...]



ECOFIBRA is designing and testing a composite material with advanced mechanical properties made in an additised thermoplastic mould from recovered cellulose fibre. The project will also examine options regarding the application of cellulose fibre to new products and new circular economy business models and will optimise recyclable paper’s journey from the [...]



AIRPOXY reduces the production and maintenance costs of composite parts in the aeronautic sector by introducing a novel family of thermoset composites that preserve all the advantages of conventional thermosets but can also be reprocessed, repaired and even recycled. To achieve so, project partners develop and validate a family of ground-breaking [...]



Jif2Land project aims to evaluate laminar flow wings technology and to reduce the amount of combustible needed and, ultimately, the environmental and footprint of air transport. The project contributed to the development of the natural laminar flow wing technology and to test the technology on an Airbus [...]
