The LOCOMACHS project

LOCOMACHS (LOw COst Manufacturing and Assembly of Composite and Hybrid Structures) is a collaborative research and development project coordinated by SAAB AB,  gathering 31 partners including the European key players in the aircraft industry.

Faster and more cost efficient assembly of composite structural parts is a key enabler to high rate production. The LOCOMACHS objectives are to combine existing and innovative technologies to remove non-added value operations, which are time consuming and induce recurring costs, within composite production lines.

LOCOMACHS is supported by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme, grant number 314003. With a project budget of 33M €, the project is implemented during 3.5 years (2012-2016).
