COBRACOMP - Braided textiles to improve the competitiveness of composite materials industry in NWE
The North West Europe zone is a key region for the global composite materials value chain. The composite market is growing (5% / year) and end users are looking for parts produced in large series. In Northwest Europe, this manufacturing industry suffers from a lack of competitiveness and is subject to competition from low-cost countries.
However, it is possible to reverse the trend by strengthening the competitiveness of companies, allowing them to innovate through rapid, automated and repeatable manufacturing processes. In particular, it is necessary to innovate on the manufacturing and processing of textile reinforcements.
The objective of the Interreg NWE COBRACOMP project is to develop, test and validate a new automated textile braiding process for the production of preforms for composite materials reinforcement. Eight industrial, academic and cluster partners gathered in a partnership lead by Euramaterials to implement the project activities.
During the project, two innovative braiding machines will be developed to manufacture two innovative textile braid architectures, as well as digital simulation and part design tools. Two technological demonstrators will be manufactured to validate the technical and economic feasibility of the new process, from the textile reinforcement to the final part.
The creation of a transnational network on the theme of composite materials using braids will help to disseminate information to all project targets. This network will also help sustain the use of project results after its completion.
The COBRACOMP project will strengthen the competitiveness of companies in the composite materials production value chain
