Daher and Luxembourg’s LIST Will Develop Welding Technology to Assemble Aircraft Substructures Produced with Thermoplastic Composites May 23 2022

2022 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, May 23, 2022

Daher has established a large partnership with the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) to mature and optimize a welding technology that enables the assembly of primary aircraft substructures produced with thermoplastic composites.
Signed at JEC World 2022 trade show in Paris, the three-year bilateral agreement will focus on an infrared welding technology suitable for thick parts with large dimensions, to be used in high volume manufacturing and providing high reproducibility as well as excellent quality.
“Bringing together the new welding technology with automated assembly of aircraft substructures is an enabler that will open the full potential of thermoplastic composites for aviation,” explained Cedric Eloy, the Deputy Chief Technology Officer at Daher.
Applying this technology will expand the welding solutions for thermoplastic composites offered by Daher and KVE Composites – a Dutch company specializing in the design, manufacture and assembly of high-performance thermoplastic composites.
The newly signed partnership will benefit from the expertise of Daher as a designer and manufacturer of aircraft aerostructures, as well as LIST’s know-how in material science and process development.
