Final step on the project was the manufacturing of panels for mechanical and process testing. Flat panels with different stacking sequences will be used to cut coupons for mechanical testing (tensile, compression, ILSS, etc.). Skin with integrated stringers, infused with commercial material certifiable for flight, was used for process testing at Topic Manager premises, and […]
Included in WP9, further dissemination action took place at Airbus facilities, incorporating the main process and quality results.
With the presence of the main IIAMS-project involved staff from Airbus, as well as other non-participants (but interested in this new technology), detailed explanations on the project were shown. Presentation covered all the aspects of the project, from the design board to the manufacturing experiences. Infusion technologies have really interesting advantages (part integration, costs, investments, […]
Second full-scale dummy manufactured at Topic Manager industrial site, proving the easiness of transportation, equipment setup and process.
Further to the transportation and equipment setup, second full-scale manufacturing activities included in WP6 were resumed. The production cell was designed to be easily transportable, as it has been demonstrated. No other activities than electrical and pneumatic supplies are needed, as all the equipment are structurally consistent as well as plug and play. Same forming, […]
After the project hold due to Covid pandemic, activities have been resumed and remaining manufacturing means have finally been transported and installed at Topic Manager industrial site, thus completing WP5.
After the delay to May, 2020 JEC fair has finally been cancelled due to Covid pandemic.
Expected to be one of the main dissemination platforms for the project, unfortunately JEC has been delayed due to Covid pandemic.
With the first full-scale dummy manufactured and ready to be shipped to Paris, the outbreak of the Covid pandemic has forced the organizers of JEC to postpone the fair. This fair was a really important opportunity for the dissemination of the results of IIAMS, as well as an excellent platform for further technological and business […]
After final process tests and fine setup, infusion of the first full-scale dummy has taken place. Infusion of the part is one-shot, including not only the skin but also 6 stringers, front and rear spars as well as 24 stiffeners. The goal of complete and reliable part integration has been achieved, keeping assembly tolerances, resulting […]
During the last months, all the equipment and tooling have been manufactured and tested. This equipment includes carbon fiber molds, caul plates and forming bases, for both RH and LH parts, as well as the ACTII system (which is the brain of the process, providing the HMI during manufacturing, and controlling the resin dosing and […]
Work package 4 is ongoing, and a workshop meeting took place at project Topic Manager site in Cádiz (Spain). During the meeting, project progress was presented to the Topic Manager, and some points related to the technical solutions applied in the parts manufacturing process were discussed. A scale model was exposed, in order to validate […]
At the end of March 2019 the third work package (“WP3 – Full design of key turn innovative and flexible industrial means system”) of the IIAMS project has been finished. The main purpose of this work package has been to develop in detail the preliminary design of the system components, based on the previous work […]
