MAPICC 3D

The MAPICC 3D project and concept aims at developing manufacturing system for 3D shaped, multilayered products based on flexible materials.

 ENSAIT was ccordinator of the project

The ultimate goals are:

> The development of integrated and automated process chain able to produce from hybrid thermoplastic yarn to 3D complex shaped thermoplastic composite structure in single step thermoplastic consolidation process.

> The development of flexible industrial tools, able to produce customized final composites: possibility to reinforce the preform by coating, weaving multilayers, by injection of foam, by introduction of sensors (control quality of preform during the production or monitor the integrity of composite during use)

> The development of modelling tool in order to help understanding of the mechanisms involved in the new technologies and to prototype virtually 3D preform, predictive tools to evaluate the physical and mechanical properties of final 3D preform and final composites structure and at the last step reverse engineering.
