Project duration

1.1.2016 – 31.3.2019

Initial situation

  • Helicopter rotor blade in prepreg construction very expensive and high manual effort
  • Potential of innovative process chain (RTM design) could be demonstrated
  • Robustness still questionable and economic efficiency or necessary degree of automation (4 sheets for the price of 5)


  • Optimization/ proof of the robustness of the production process chain
  • Mapping and optimization of the material flow / production layout
  • Testing of different production scenarios ((partially) automated, supplier scenario, etc.) with regard to economic optimization potential
  • Validation of economic efficiency
