Aernnova finalises the SIMPAFORM Project successfully
Aernnova has recently successfully completed the SIMPAFORM Project. SIMPAFORM funded in collaboration with the Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial (CDTI) and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the “Smart Growth” program.
The project through more than 16 months has had as main technological objectives:
- The generation of a new functional analysis methodology for the cold forming of light metal alloys to increase the precision of the results.
- Optimization of the parameterization process of the cold forming process with high reliability in the calculation of residual stresses for aircraft panels without integrated stiffeners.
- Establishment of a precise and repetitive forming coverage application process for large parts.
- Validation, experimentally and quantitatively, of the residual stresses previously estimated by numerical analysis.
During the last year, Aernnova has developed the Multidrill Project with the aim of increase its technological capabilities in terms of innovative technologies, increasing involvement in research and development projects, supporting the development of new technological capabilities. The objectives of this proposal was the development of new drilling condition (feed and r.p.m), drilling tools materials and […]
Airbus’ A340 laminar-flow “BLADE” test demonstrator aircraft (A340-300 MSN001) made its successful maiden flight for the EU-sponsored Clean Sky “Blade” project. The aircraft, dubbed “Flight Lab”, took off on Tuesday from the Tarbes aerodrome in southern France at local time 11:00, and after a series of successful tests it landed at Airbus’ facilities in Toulouse […]
Aernnova together with other leading aerospace companies in Europe, such as Airbus, European Space Agency, ITP-Rolls Royce and Thales Alenia, will participate in the second edition of IN(3D)USTRY, between 3-5 October in Barcelona. How is 3D technology being used today in the manufacture of aircraft, spacecraft and satellites? Aernnova, among others, will be revealing how […]
