Teijin is partner in the EU-funded project INFINTE
17. Mai 2023 | Blog
INFINITE is an EU-funded project aiming to develop sensors (and analysers) based on the usage of ferromagnetic microwires that are embedded in composite structural parts for SHM (structutural health monitoring). Teijin will be responsible for the insertion of microwires into the Tenax™ Dry Reinforcement Non-Crimp Fabric (NCF). Incorporating microwires within the composite will allow to wireless monitor orientation, curing temperature and strain-stress during processing and service life for high-performance composites.Show video
INFINITE project was featured as the EU Horizon 2022 project they are involved in that contribute to the development of sensors and analyser based on the usage of ferromagnetic microwires to be embedded in composite structural parts, in order to monitor manufacturing and structural health throughout the whole life cycle of the component.
The wireless monitoring system will permit producing digital signals and vast sets of data linked with the specimen to create an as-built digital twin of the structure that will also account for the whole history since it was manufactured through all maintenance operations performed. Teijin will be responsible for the insertion of microwires into the Tenax™ Dry Reinforcement Non-Crimp Fabric (NCF). Some people who visited the booths at the JEC in Paris found this new technology interesting, and asked us to keep them updated on any advances.
Take a look at the approach video about how INFINITE H2020 project deals with Aerospace composites digitally sensorised from manufacturing to end-of-life. What are the objetives of the project? See also more info at https://www.infinite-project.eu
