EADS is flying high

EADS Innovation Works has received two awards for its composites technologies.

Presented at JEC Composites in Paris, they are for the application of unidirectional braiding technology in the production of composite aircraft frames and a demonstrator for the assembly of composite aircraft structures using structural adhesive bonding.

’With these two projects, EADS Innovation Works has made significant steps in demonstrating solutions for two of the often-cited weaknesses of composite component production: the cost-effective manufacturing of high-volume components and integrated design and assembly,’ said EADS chief technical officer Jean Botti.
