ENLIGHTEN staat voor Enabling Integrated Lightweight Structures In High Volumes
Hieronder de tekst in het Engels
Thermoplastic composites (TPCs) are on the verge of unprecedented growth in structural applications in the aerospace sector likely to be followed by high volume automotive applications. While the manufacturing of individual parts is at a proper level of maturity, the integration and assembly of these parts is far less well developed. This urgently calls for rapid technology development in fusion bonding. This program will establish the principles for advanced assembly and integration manufacturing methods of TPC’s. (See the appendix for more information on the first ideas).
We seek for parties that play a role in development and/or application of thermoplastic composites and that are potentially interested to join this initiative. Currently interested are, among others: UT, TUD, TU/e, BMC and TPRC.
