CCS and partners develop a new method to create high-performance composite structures with thermoplastic tapes

PRESS RELEASE

Singapore 19th November 2014: Composite Cluster Singapore (CCS) has developed a concept that aims at manufacturing high-performance composite structures in shorter time and with significantly reduced cost. The groundbreaking concept builds on market proven thermoplastic tape placement technology and integrates it with advanced robotics and laser technologies to overcome limitations of current solutions. CCS will continue the development in a project, jointly with its partners HOPE Technik Pte Ltd, KUKA Robot Automation (M) Sdn Bhd, SGL Group and TRUMPF Pte Ltd.

Article in Aerospace Singapore Magazine

Singapore, June 2014: The article "Trends in high-performance composites", written by Prof. Klaus Drechsler and Dr. Florian Doetzer from CCS has been published in Aerospace Singapore Magazine's May-August Issue Volume 7 / No.2 / 2014.

The article points out implications and associated trends of recent years' sharp increase in innovation and research and development (R&D), which has been driven mainly by two major industrial developments: the decision to use composites for primary structures of large airliners and the introduction in mass market automobiles.
