A NHYTE related article has been published in the January issue of the European Aeronautics Science Network Newsletter highlighting the significant progress of the project.
"NHYTE (New Hybrid Thermoplastic Composite Aero-structures manufactured by Out of Autoclave Continuous Automated Technologies) has now entered the second semester of its three year lifetime. The main expected outcome of the project is the development of concepts and methodologies enabling the realization of innovative and green integrated aero-structures made by a new recyclable hybrid thermoplastic composite material with multifunctional capabilities. This new hybrid material will be fabricated by an innovative working cell implementing advanced and continuous automated production processes. The typical aero-structure (part of wing and fuselage) will be manufactured by robotic machine using new process as Automated Fibre Placement (AFP), continuous forming and will be assembled by induction welding, like the process that is currently followed in the automotive industry ".
