BladeMakerFollowing commissioning of the production portal last spring, Fraunhofer IWES has now reached the next milestone in the BladeMaker joint research project: the integration of the process steps as the basis for a prototypical end-to-end process is now under way.

The first step is production of the first shear web with direct infusion, followed by shear web manufacturing with PUR foam core elements, the production of the first half of the form tool, and the testing of a new gripper principle for the handling of cuttings. By completion of the project at the end of this year, all of the optimised processes will be merged and adapted to the production sequence. The project partners are BASF, EMG, EEW Protec, Faserinstitut Bremen (FIBRE), Fibre-tech composites, Fraunhofer IFAM, Fraunhofer IWES, Henkel, Hexion, PD Group, Schmalz, Siemens AG and Siemens Industry Software, Sinoi, University of Bremen/BIK and 2KM.
