SPARTA Project - Scrap of thermoplastic composites materials

SPARTA project aims at designing and manufacturing a novel and eco-efficient scrapping methodology of reinforced fibre structures...

In the aerospace industry the reinforced composite materials are more and more demanded, where the end-of life (EoL) of the final product aspect is very debated point nowadays. The thermoplastic materials play a key role because of their recycle properties. This fact can bring about a challenge to design recycling techniques to extend the EoL of the reinforced composite parts. However, any of this current recycling methods can recover by 80% of the thermoplastic (TP)fibre and ensure the acceptable mechanical properties of the rCF(recycled carbon fibre). The project will provide a solution by developing a recycling method for the key process steps: scrapping by cutting mechanic, automatic deposition and compression moulding manufacturing.
