Manufacturing of complex parts based on unidirectional tapes for its application in the automotive and aeronautical industry, with the minimum use of materials and energy.

UD tapes manufacturing

Three different technologies for fibre impregnation will be researched to develop the innovative process to manufacture unidirectional carbon and glass fibre tapes with increased fibre content.

Automotive parts based on UD tapes

Adaptation of the conventional overmoulding process; use of injection-compression moulding (ICM) technologies.

Aeronautic parts based on UD tapes

In-situ consolidation without the use of autoclave.

Simulation and mathematical modelling technologies

Simulation and mathematical modelling technologies will be used to assess the design of the complex composite parts as well as the manufacturing processes.
