  • EFFICOMP dedicated Session @ the 8th EASN-CEAS International Workshop

    The EFFICOMP project is pleased to announce its participation in the 8th EASN-CEAS International Workshop on “Manufacturing for Growth & Innovation”, which will take place between 04 and 07 September, 2018 at the University of Glasgow, UK . Over the years the EASN conference has been established as a major European Dissemination event. The 7th international gathering of the EASN Association was attended by approximately 400 researchers from various disciplines who presented their high quality recent achievements and new upstream research ideas.

    We will be glad to welcome you in our EFFICOMP dedicated session which will take place all allong with the  ECO-COMPASS project on the 6th of September, 2018 at Sir Charles Wilson building, Lecture Theatre, from 10:40 until 13:00. The session will be co-chaired by Patrice Lefebure (AIRBUS / EFFICOMP) and Jens Bachmann (DLR / ECO-COMPASS). Our current progress and upcoming results will be introduced through the following presentations:

    • Development of Innovative Curing Technologies within H2020 EFFICOMP Project, for Manufacture of HIG Performance CFRC Parts - P. Lefébure, J. Cinquin
    • Characterisation of the forming properties of wide unidirectional prepreg tapes using the advanced Ply Placement (APP) Process - K. Heudorfer, M. Engelfried, J. Fial, S. Carosella, P. Middendorf
    • Investigation on ultrasonic welding of CF/epoxy and CF/PEEK composites - E. Tsiangou, S. Teixeira de Freitas, I. Fernandez Villegas and R. Benedictus 
    • Assessment of manufacturing a leading edge using hybrid heating -  P. Hilmer, A. Lami, M. Buggisch

    We will be more than happy to meet you there and show you our latest achievements!

  • EFFICOMP @ the 7th EASN International Conference

    The EFFICOM project is glad to announce its strong participation in the 7th EASN International Conference on Innovation in European Aeronautics Research. More specifically, a dedicated EFFICOMP session has been scheduled, during the event, on September 26th 2017 at the Conference Centre of the Institute of Aviation in Warsaw, Poland (Room: BRAVO), from 15:10 until 16:30 and it will be chaired by the EFFICOMP Coordinator, Dr. Jacques Cinquin from AIRBUS Group Innovation. 

    Over the years the EASN conference has been established as a major European Dissemination event. The 6th international gathering of the EASN Association was attended by more than 220 researchers from various disciplines who presented their high quality recent achievements and new upstream research ideas. The conference will include Plenary Talks by renowned guests and Roundtable Discussions with key-figures from the academia, industry, research community and policy makers.

    The EFFICOMP project will present its current progress and upcoming results through the following presentations:

    1. Assessment of Hybrid Heating for Curing of CFRP Structures (Philipp Hilmer),

    2. Development of new processes for aerospace structural composite part manufacturing with affordable cost and high ramp up capability within EFFICOMP project (Jacques Cinquin, Patrice Lefebure),

    3. Investigation of a new out of autoclave placement process, mould concepts/release strategies and reusable heated bagging material (Klaus Heudorfer, Mathias Engelfried, Julian Fial, Stefan Carosella, Peter Middendor) and

    4. Investigation on Energy Director-less Ultrasonic Welding of Thermoplastic to Thermoset Composites (Eirini Tsiangou).
