Looking back at JEC 2015

The LOCOMACHS project participated at JEC Europe 2015. Representatives of LOCOMACHS partners involved in design, production and assembly of composites and composite structures were present in the LOCOMACHS booth during the JEC show. This allowed for networking, presenting results and performing live demonstrations. A composite wing rib produced by DLR was exhibited, together with an accompanying video showing the different steps of its manufacturing. Furthermore, LOCOMACHS partner SONAXIS performed live demonstrations of ultrasound probes for air-coupled ultrasonic testing through-out the event.

JEC booth

LOCOMACHS also co-hosted the Aeronautics session. The session was chaired by Maria Weiland (SAAB AB), the project coordinator. Five of LOCOMACHS partners presented their work for an audience of around 150 JEC delegates, as follows:  

  • Kevin Peters (GKN Aerospace): Integrated component design to support low cost assembly methodologies
  • Markus Kleineberg (DLR German Aerospace Center): Fully controlled production environment for autoclave injection processes
  • Hugo Falgarone (Airbus Group Innovations): Composite structural assembly simulation with geometrical variations
  • Mathilda Karlsson Hagnell (Royal Institute of Technology, KTH): Cost and weight modelling of composite structures within Aeronautical applications
  • Hervé Tretout (Dassault Aviation): Novel and lean NDI/NDT technologies for composite materials and structures

The presentations are available for download on the Publications page.
