Reinforced injection materials for application in the aeronautical industry
Open CHALLENGE: Aerospace Sector: AIRBUS SPAIN.
The potential implementation in the aeronautical industry of the manufacturing process by means of injection of short fiber reinforced plastics is being studied in parts of low structural responsibility as hulls belonging to the horizontal and vertical stabilizers due to its attractiveness in recurrent costs and its production rate widely demonstrated in the automotive industry. The main challenge that arises during the activity is the development of a material, suitable for the production process, that presents the ideal balance between its properties of rigidity, as well as the resistance to impacts that this type of parts can suffer during the operational life of the aircraft.
