  • Dismantling technologies: Resistance welding debonding & abrasive water cutting

    Nowadays, composite materials are gradually gaining relevance in the aeronautic sector. Their excellent mechanical properties, as well as their reduced density make them a suitable material to reduce the aircraft weight while respecting the mechanical requirements of the metallic materials they are replacing.

  • Ecoxy

    Fibre reinforced thermoset composites (FRTCs) are attractive materials for high demanding sectors, such as automotive or construction, due to their lightweight and excellent mechanical properties.

  • Falcon

    Fully automated, controlled and versatile system for low cost, high rate and energy efficient production of highly loaded aeronautical structural parts.

  • HELAC’s Composite reprocessing: selective water cutting and resistive welding

    These days, metal is the main component of aircraft parts but, for the last few years, the aeronautical industry has been incorporating new materials, such as thermoset compounds. They require a recycling system that allows the extraction of the reusable components (carbon fiber), to produce less waste of this composite material, which is hardly recyclable until now. HELACS offers a technological solution to recycle both thermoset materials and thermoplastics, which are currently booming and are considered to be the materials of the coming future for aircrafts.
