A French SME working in aircraft domain is looking for development of assembly techniques and technologies for wood materials for an innovative type of aircraft that will be environmentally friendly. Technical cooperation is sought with industry, technical institute or research laboratory to build the prototype.
A French SME is working on a new type of aircraft development For this development, the company needs new assembly techniques and technologies of wood materials. The requested partner will be selected for its ability to develop the prototype according to the specifications and its expertise. Facilities must be available for the characterisation and stress analysis.
As a first step, these technologies or techniques don't need to be certified for aeronautics.
These technologies or techniques might not be available on the market. That's why the company is looking for cooperation either with a company working on an innovative process to assemble wood materials or with a technical center or research laboratory possessing a strong technical expertise in the development of assembly techniques for wood materials.
- Skills for development and assembly techniques for wood materials
- Expertise for selection of materials and suppliers,
- Assembly process (glueing or other assembly process),
- Strength and ageing characterisation,
- Equivalent module for stress analysis,
- Quality assurance
Not necessarily certified as suitable for aircraft today but all design and process shall be made available for certification.
Type of Partner sought : industry, technical center or research laboratory.
In the initial stages of the collaboration, the focus would be on developing prototypes according to the requirements listed in the technical specification or expertise sought.
Tests will be carried out in order to prove the quality of the planned solution.
The company will focus for the selection of the partner on finding an optimum match in terms of weight, strength and ease of use.
Other parts of the aircraft / assembly chain which are not involving wood or wood based composites could be done by another supplier.
