TenCate signs thermoplastics aerostructures agreement with Fokker and Airbus. | aeronautic | Scoop.it

TenCate will supply thermoplastic composite materials for the construction of several aircraft components by Fokker Aerostructures.

At the Paris Air Show in France on June 19, TenCate Advanced Composites (Nijverdal, The Netherlands) and Fokker Aerostructures (Hoogeveen, The Netherlands) signed a long-term agreement to provide thermoplastic composite materials of TenCate for the construction of several aircraft components by Fokker Aerostructures for the international aerospace industry.

The agreement covers the supply of continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic laminates and a range of semipreg composite materials that are used in commercial, regional and military aircraft built by OEMs like Airbus, Boeing, Gulfstream, Dassault and AgustaWestland. Advantages of the application of these light-weight composites are, among others, the saving of kerosene, and the ability to produce large volumes in series.

This long-term supply agreement is an important step forward for the close cooperation between TenCate Advanced Composites and Fokker Aerostructures. Frank Meurs, group director of TenCate Advanced Composites, explains: "The new agreement emphasizes the success of our advanced thermoplastic composites in general, and in particular of our productive relationship with Fokker within the innovative Dutch aerospace industry. This agreement also underlines the continuation of our close partnership since the early 1990s for the supply of thermoplastic composite materials, designed for the part production of Fokker Aerostructures for the international aerospace industry."

TenCate and TAPAS partners towards next phase of collaboration with Airbus


Today at the Paris Air Show in France the Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs, Henk Kamp, is signing a letter of intent (LOI) for the proposed extension of the Thermoplastic Affordable Primary Aircraft Structure consortium (TAPAS), in which eight Dutch companies and institutes from the aviation industry have been working with Airbus on groundbreaking technological innovations for aviation since 2009.

An innovative fuselage panel for Airbus, which is made of thermoplastic composite from TenCate Advanced Composites and produced by Airbus, Fokker Aerostructures and other TAPAS partners, is also being unveiled at the Paris Air Show.


The companies and institutes forming the TAPAS consortium work closely with Airbus in the field of design and material, production and assembly technologies, supported by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs among others. Under the leadership of Airbus, the partners recently produced a demonstration model of a fuselage panel for passenger aircraft. The technological process was characterized by press forming, welding and co-consolidating the thermoplastic composite into a double-curved fuselage panel, including welded omega stringers and butt-jointed Tstringers. It is the first time that such a large-scale fuselage panel has been made of thermoplastic composite. Thanks to its unique properties – such as high stiffness, fire safety and excellent processability – this advanced material is a prime contender for selection as the material for the entire fuselage of future aircraft.


The LOI to be signed by Minister Kamp aims to extend the existing research agreement of the TAPAS consortium and focuses on the continuing development of thermoplastic composites for wing and tail applications, for support structures for engines, and for fuselages. TAPAS 2 will be the successor of TAPAS 1, which was initiated in 2009 with the aim of expanding the development of thermoplastic composites for Airbus aircraft design and bringing these materials to a higher technology readiness level.

How The American University was Killed, in Five Easy Steps | The Homeless Adjunct Blog

How The American University was Killed, in Five Easy Steps | The Homeless Adjunct Blog | aeronautic | Scoop.it

A few years back, Paul E. Lingenfelter began his report on the defunding of public education by saying, “In 1920 H.G. Wells wrote, ‘History is becoming more and more a race between education and catastrophe.’ I think he got it right. Nothing is more important to the future of the United States and the world than the breadth and effectiveness of education, especially of higher education. I say especially higher education, but not because pre- school, elementary, and secondary education are less important. Success at every level of education obviously depends on what has gone before. But for better or worse, the quality of postsecondary education and research affects the quality and effectiveness of education at every level.”

 

In the last few years, conversations have been growing like gathering storm clouds about the ways in which our universities are failing. There is talk about the poor educational outcomes apparent in our graduates, the out-of-control tuitions and crippling student loan debt. Attention is finally being paid to the enormous salaries for presidents and sports coaches, and the migrant worker status of the low-wage majority faculty. There are now movements to control tuition, to forgive student debt, to create more powerful “assessment” tools, to offer “free” university materials online, to combat adjunct faculty exploitation. But each of these movements focuses on a narrow aspect of a much wider problem, and no amount of “fix” for these aspects individually will address the real reason that universities in America are dying.

 

To explain my perspective here, I need to go back in time.

Bob McEwan is the general manager for the New Product Introduction (NPI) at GE Aviation:

 

"We’re planning to produce fuel nozzles tips using this manufacturing technique, and these parts will be a part of the LEAP engine, due to go into planes by 2016. There are 19 nozzles in each engine, and two engines per plane. We anticipate that by 2020, well over 100,000 parts in GE and CFM engines will be produced through additive manufacturing."
