Objectives of the DFP project

Robotized machining of large size and complex shape workpieces made of dry fiber composites.



  • Better understanding of thermo-mechanical phenomena and laster/fiber interactions
  • Innovative tools for the deposit of the first fiber layup
  • Vision-based servoing of a robot for the deposit of the fibers.
