The ADDIFLY project consists of the study and development of additive manufacturing technology SLM (Selective Laser Melting) and its application for design and manufacture of highly complex aeronautical components.
The objectives pursued by the ADDIFLY project are the following:
Reduction of the weight and size of Hybrid Laminar Flow systems taking advantage of the advantages offered by additive manufacturing technologies.
Development of a new process of forming by electroplasticity.
Development of technologies for joining by welding of parts manufactured by additive technology.
Reduction in the weight and cost of manufacturing small, highly complex metal subassemblies.
Project CEMTAURO: Development of Multiprocessing Cells for Aeronautical Operations of Robotized Manufacturing, Assembly and Inspection.
Participating Companies: Aernnova Andalucía (Leader), Sofitec and Airgrup.
The CEMTAURO project focuses on the development of different technological solutions aimed at improving efficiency and productivity in the assembly of different low and medium cadence aircraft structures.
The project objectives are focused on the development and validation of specific technologies for:
The robust robotization of aeronautical assembly processes.
The automation of TIG welding processes for the manufacturing of aeronautical conduits for the transport of fluids.
Assistance to the operator through vision and projection systems in the execution of aeronautical manufacturing and inspection processes.
Project FADO: Additive Manufacturing by laser of large parts.
The FADO project focuses on the development of a highly productive laser additive manufacturing process for large components in the aeronautical industry.
The objectives of the project are:
Development of a flexible additive manufacturing process for large components by combining wire feed and powder input parameters.
Development of an experimental model for the determination of deformations.
Development of enriched CAD-CAM software.
Development of an on-line control system for the additive manufacturing process.
Airgrup participates in the following project, which has the financial support of CDTI through its program for strategic research projects within CIEN consortium:
Project ESCAPHIB: Tail Structures and Systems for a Hybrid Propulsion Passenger Airplane.
Participating companies: Airbus Operations SL (Leader), Altran Innovación SA, Compañía Española de Sistemas Aeronáuticos SAU, Alava Ingenieros SA and Airgrup.
The ESCAPHIB project ultimate objective, is the investigation of four new key blocks of electrical technology that will be tested in a hybrid aircraft demonstrator (E-FAN X) developed by the Airbus Group.
These new blocks to be developed will focus specifically on the high-power cooling system, the intake and exhaust of a high-power generation system, the battery protection system, and the development of new configurations in tail cones. , reaching the validation and verification of these systems on the ground and some in flight.
The project has a duration of three and a half years, to be executed between 2018 and 2021 and is developed with the support of several research organizations and technology centers.
