In nationally or European funded projects, we develop new functional coatings, process simulation and monitoring methods and new materials and components for 3D-Printing to expand our knowledge and expertise for our customers in new segments.
AAC has long heritage in research in aviation. Since its foundation, AAC works in a number of national or EU funded projects either as coordinator or as partner. On top of and combined with technical work, AAC may offer also the coordination of projects including writing proposal towards public calls (FFG, EU). AAC here also offers to bring together “producers” with “end users”, to run such developments with proper targets towards first applications.
Main scientific focus areas of Aerospace and Advanced Composits Gmbh in aeronautics:
- Since 2008 AAC has been active in the field of passive coatings and anti-icing measures in the form of active heating systems and electromechanical actuators. In this context profound experience has been gained in course of the participation in more than 8 national and European projects, involving leading industrial companies like wind park operators (WEB) and aircraft manufacturers (Diamond Aircraft, Airbus)
- Jointly with our project partners of the aeronatics industry AAC is developing large 3D printed high temperature alloys for aviation. In order to be able to speed up the characterization procedures a high speed measurement method to allow high temperature tensile testing up to 1,300 °C was developed by AAC.
- AAC is developing methods and sensors for production process monitoring as well as concepts and algorithms for the off- and online damage detection, quantification and residual life time prediction for composite structures based on passive and active ultrasonic methods
