TWI’s Adhesives, Composites and Sealants Senior Project Leader, Sofia Sampethai will be presenting at the 10th EASN Virtual Conference on the 3rd of September 2020.
Sofia’s presentation will focus on the progress of the activities of the TOD project, which is part of the Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking initiative. Thermoplastic composites can reduce cost and save weight in aeroplane structures. However, there is no thermoplastic door currently available on the market for commercial aircraft.
The overall goal of TOD project is to demonstrate and validate the manufacturing process of thermoplastic door components, induction welding assembly process, additive manufacturing and metallic parts of door mechanism, metallic and thermoset parts of surrounding structure of the passenger and service doors of an aircraft.
