FUSINBUL consortium has achieved the first bulkhead made by automatic lay-up with preimpregnated carbon fiber material to obtain a full scale pressure bulkhead inside of REG IADP Fuselage Demonstrator of LEONARDO Aircraft with Fidamc, Metitalia and Sertec.

In the framework of the Clean Sky 2 European project; the pressure bulkhead with a dimeter of 3.5m has been manufactured using a cobonding process to integrate the precured omegas with the fresh skin of preimpregnated carbon fiber made by automatic lay-up in AFP machine. This has been an important achievement for Fusinbul project and also for composites technology, obtaining a high dimension structure with good quality results according to aeronautical standards.

             “The project leading to these results has received funding from the Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement n° 831946”.
