Daher’s Thermoplastic Composite Aircraft Wing Rib for Flight Testing

June 19 2017

Daher has designed and built its first-ever thermoplastic composite wing rib, applying the company's expertise with this technology for increasingly complex airframe components produced - offering aircraft manufacturers lightweight solutions that are alternative, or complementary, to metallic and more traditional thermoset composite parts.

The thermoplastic composite rib, to be displayed for the first time on Daher's exhibit stand at this month's Paris Air Show (Hall 2A, booth B253), is sized for a business jet and will be incorporated in a test wing box constructed during 2018 as part of the Composite Aircraft of the Future platform led by the French Civil Aviation Research Council (CORAC).
