FLEX project: Clean Sky EU funded project – GA number 821488
Flexible RTM tool with automated distortion correction
The FLEX project developed a tool with in-situ, automated correction of distortion caused by the internal stresses build-up during composites processing. The tooling concept includes process automation and optimisation elements in order to offer an RTM manufacturing solution that can meet the present-day production outputs required by the aerospace industry. The project main goal is to offer a tooling solution that automatically corrects part distortion and incorporates enabling technologies for increased productivity (almost double of the SoA) with traceable aerospace quality of the produced parts.
