JEC Award 2011

Compose was the co-recipient of JEC Innovation Award 2011 - Aeronautics category

Within the framework of an R&T project launched by Latécoère in 2007, Compose developed a large & complex RTM tool used to inject one-shot a 3D dry stitched preform.

Compose, in charge of designing and manufacturing the tool,
succeeded to:
• manage thermal expansion properties of the tool
• optimise the tool weight and dimensions
• integrate sensors to monitor and control the moulding cycle
• design movable inserts to release undercuts
The tool design is patented.

 

 

 

 

In 2011 , this project led to the one-shot injection of a full scale passenger door demontrator displayed at the Paris Air Show.
