Project FUSELAGE – IDI-20170990 (Automated manufacturing technologies and high integration of advanced aeronautical airframe structures)

The ultimate objective of the FUSELAGE – IDI-20170990 project (Automated manufacturing technologies and high integration of advanced aeronautical airframe structures) is the research of new design principles for disruptive architectures, development of materials and innovative technologies for production processes in a connected industry environment. By controlling and monitoring the process at all times, it will make it possible to manufacture large composite structures for the belly fairing and rear fuselage sections of the new generation of commercial aircraft, aimed at a more eco-efficient, competitive, reliable and resistant aircraft with a target rate of 100 aircraft/month.

This project is developed in consortium between AIRBUS OPERATIONS SL (project leader), UTINGAL SL, MB SISTEMAS S COOP, DANOBAT S COOP and LGAI TECHNOLOGICAL CENTER SA (APPLUS GROUP), with the support of several research organisations and technology centres. The project has a duration of 3.5 years, to be executed between 2017 and 2020.

This project has the financial support of the CDTI through its Programme for strategic research projects in CIEN consortium and was awarded in November 2017.

Macizado – automated tool for the solidification of aeronautical parts with high added value

The general objective/em> of the MACIZADO project is to generate a specific tool for the solidification process of high added value parts for the aeronautical industry.

This project is subsidised by the Axencia Galega de Innovación, has been supported by the Consellería de Economía, Emprego e Industria and has ERDF co-financing, OT1 “Promoting technological development, innovation and quality research”, P.O. FEDER Galicia 2014-2020./em>

Grooving

The main objective of the project is the development of an automated system for the grooving of NOMEX and similar honeycomb composite parts in different geometries and sizes.

The main challenge is to position UTINGAL as a company with high added value and high production and process capabilities before the large aeronautical corporations, differentiating itself from them by the possibility of integrating the maximum number of operations.

Utingal has carried out the project alone and has been funded by the CDTI under the “Proyectos de Investigación y Desarrollo PID” programme.

TACTIL

Utingal participates in the TACTIL project. R&D project financed by the CDTI in which Utingal, Integasa, Insega, Talleres Campiños and Aimen and the University of Coruña also participate.

The main objective of TACTIL is to develop new concepts of tubular heat exchangers, in which the current smooth/alloyed tubes are replaced by tubes microtexturised on their outer surface using laser technology, with the aim of improving the heat transmission coefficient through the functionalised surfaces, and therefore increasing the energy efficiency of this equipment.

For the development of the TACTIL project, the CDTI has awarded Utingal a grant under the FEDER INNTERCONECTA programme in the 2016 call within the State Plan for Scientific and Technical Research and Innovation 2013-2016.
