Aerospace 4.0: Next Era for Commercial Aircraft Manufacturing Ecosystem

10/21/2019 13:40 - 14:15

The research presentation is titled “Aerospace 4.0: Implications to the New Manufacturing Ecosystem” and will focus on the next generation single aisle aircraft (late 2020s) that will be adopting advanced manufacturing robotic applications (Cobots, Mobots), automated fiber placement, additive manufacturing and thermoplastic composites. The next single aisle aircraft design will be standardizing the processes and practices of additive manufacturing components (3D printing) and thermoplastic composites for aircraft structures.
