7 October was the kick-off for the FIXAR project. The main question is ‘How can the aviation- and windenergy sector make composites repair economically viable by applying automated technologies?’ To answer this question, TPAC, part of Saxion University of Applied Sciences, joined a consortium with Dutch aviation- and wind energy SMEs, CompositesNL, and the InHolland and Amsterdam Universities of Applied Sciences. They will embark on a 2-year applied research project FIXAR: Future Improvements for Composites Sustainable Automated Repair. TPAC will lead the workpackage aimed at reapir of thermoplastic composites.
