TOD – THERMOPLASTICS ON DOORS
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. The proposition of TOD project is related to the following:
- Optimization 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.
