  • AITIIP develops a robotic system to dismantle and recycle composite materials from the aircrafts of the future

    AITIIP Technology Centre leads HELACS, a European project which aims to develop a dual methodology of controlled comprehensive dismantling in order to make possible the classification, recycling and reuse of aircraft parts made of thermoset and thermoplastic composites that have reached their end of life. Annually, the aeronautical industry is depositing more than 40,000 tons of end-of-life composite material waste in landfills. Thanks to the recovery of materials, the technology proposed by HELACS will benefit the change towards an energy efficiency model.

  • Dummy Tool, the future of industrial robot programming system

    From some time now, robot teaching process was led by two techniques, always based on the displacement of the robot itself.

  • HELACS at Transfiere 2022

    HELACS has attended in this edition of 2022, within the stand of Aitiip Technology Center, which has participated as a member of the Spanish Federation of Technology Centers (FEDIT).

  • HELACS, at the Plastic Recycling Show Europe

    This year, the HELACS project has been present at the stand of Aitiip Centro Tecnológico, during its participation in PRSE 2022.

  • HELACS, starring in Advanced Factories 2022

    Advanced Factories reaffirms, once again, its position within the industrial panorama in southern Europe. It is already a benchmark event in the innovation calendar, and this 2022 has consolidated its success.

  • HELACS, Transforming the dissmantling process of the next generation of aircrafts

    The HELACS project has recently completed one year of life. During this time, the consortium partners have been making progresses in their research and in the development of novel robotics to recycle composite materials of large components. In this way, HELACS is consolidated as a revolutionary alternative to the problem of the end of life of this type of aircraft components, facilitating their recyclability and, therefore, making their recovery and reuse possible. helacs paves the way towards the green transition, which is now the main goal of Europe’s aviation industry.

  • INN-PAEK develops a 100% recyclable & lighter thermoplastic flange wheel for future aeronautics

    The development of a technology that allows the manufacture of flange wheels for the cooling systems of the aeronautics with 100% recyclable materials

  • INN-PAEK first birthday!

    The INN-PAEK team is celebrating! The project has completed its first year of lifetime in January 2022. It has been 12 months of hard work.

  • INN-PAEK goes through the insert testing stage

    As times goes, INN-PAEK team is making progresses within the geometries project research. Ten months after the project kick off, the INN-PAEK consortium is now preparing to start the testing stage with the required inserts manufacture the Flange Wheel demonstrator.

  • INN-PAEK starts the insert testing stage

    Ten months after the project kick off, the INN-PAEK consortium is now preparing to start the testing stage with the required inserts manufacture the Flange Wheel demonstrator.

  • INN-PAEK team validates the first salt-soluble inserts for the Wheel flange

    During the past months, Aitiip Technology Centre team has tested different inserts for the flange Wheel.

  • New Version! Get the HELACS’s updated brochure

    As the project moves forward, there is also advances in the dissemination material. Here you can get the new version of the HELACS’s brochure.

  • Valorisation of reusable parts in aviation

    For aircrafts that are no longer in service, the owner considers the trade-off between direct resale and disassemble & recycled. Besides that, HELACS project (Holistic processes for the cost-effective and sustainable management of End of Life of Aircraft Composite Structures) is focused on the study of the second one of these options.
