High performance and high productivity for hybride composites

ARIZONA : ARchitecture Innovante de la ZONe Auvent

OBJECTIVES

  • Propose to Automotive Carmakers some lightweight-solutions by the use of thermoplastic-composite-materials which enable a thin thickness and a high mechanical resistance thanks to continuous fibers.

WHERE DO WE STAND TODAY?

  • The consortium benefits from a prototype production line for thermoplastic composites.
  • The final prototype development of the 1.4m cowl panel is planned for 2015.
  • The project team worked on ARIZONA for two years: etablish the product specification; process and economic objectives; integrate design constraints due to composite specificities.
  • Thanks to this product line we will be able to characterize on a simplified shape, the product and materials with a full automatized process close to the final one.
