Outer Wing Metrology (WIMO)

Start date: 01 Apr 2011, End date: 31 Dec 2016,

The demand for reduction of the fuel consumption of aircraft leads to new technologies. One of them is reduction of turbulences on wings by manufacturing the surface with high quality. This means with a low waviness and without gaps and steps. During manufacturing of this surfaces an adequate quality control is mandatory. At present no measurement system exists which is capable of measuring large ...

BLADE Wing Measurement Campaign (WiMCam)

Start date: 01 Oct 2015, End date: 31 Dec 2016,

"We propose to accompany the SFWA-BLADE flight test phase with adequate wing surface metrology, to measure profile, waviness, steps, gaps, 3D disturbances, and surface roughness. The envisaged metrology system already exists and its performance to the specifications stipulated in the call has been demonstrated on relevant reference artefacts. So far, we have successfully used it for on-site BLADE ...

Manufacturing Error-free Goods at First Time (MEGAFIT)

Start date: 01 Dec 2011, End date: 30 Nov 2014,

Today, Europe’s leading position in manufacturing of high-precision metal parts is being threatened by developed non-EU countries that catch up quickly on product quality at low cost. If no further action is taken, loss of jobs and GDP are at risk.To face global competition, a breakthrough is needed in tackling the following 4 challenges:1) High number of defects2) Many costly, energy consuming fi ...

... logy for drag reduction needs small holes for boundary layer suction. This proposal addresses the perforation and integration of inserts for flow tunnel tests. Therefore, an approved laser process at BIAS for drilling suction holes for flow meters shall be transferred to an adequate system technology for large inserts using a short pulsed fibre laser with high power as recently available on the la ...
