Thermoplastic on Doors

TOD

Thermoplastic on Doors

Call for proposal: 
H2020-CS2-CFP07-2017-02
Link to CORDIS:
Objectives: 

The Regional Aircraft IADP will bring the integration of technologies developed in phase one within the Green Regional Aircraft ITD to a higher level of complexity and maturity via two flying test-beds and three large integrated ground demonstrators. The overall goal of the TOD project is to demonstrate rapid manufacturability and validation of a full scale thermoplastic composite door including its surrounding, sub-structure for regional aircraft fuselage barrel. This will be achieved by a tangible step beyond the current state of the art of several thermoplastic manufacturing technologies, some of which are already implemented in other certified aircraft parts. 3 reputable European partners, with a very well-known track-record in their respectively area of expertise, aim to use their background to address the objectives set out in this project. 

Methodology: 

The proposed approach includes:

  • Optimisation and validation of component manufacturing using thermoforming and, joining processes such as, Induction Welding and Resistive Implant Welding, which will enable light weighting by removal of mechanical fasteners.
  • Take advantage of technology advancement in industry 4.0 automation and on-line monitoring to support higher production rate with high quality performances (Zero defect) and robust control.
