Advanced Manufacturing Technologies

LMD-powder process: the DePÔz project has reached a new level of technological maturity through the design and manufacture of a unique demonstrator in record time.

The DePÔz demonstrator illustrates the growing maturity of the LMD-p process through the development of design and manufacturing rules, making the IRT Saint Exupéry a major player in the industrialisation of this technology. Laser Metal Deposition is a promising metal…

A look back at one of the activities of the IRT’s composites division: thermoplastic composites.

These organic matrix composites, 50% lighter than steel, with exceptional intrinsic properties such as good damage tolerance, more resistant to temperature, abrasion due to corrosive products and high pressures and with good recyclability have been seducing industry for several years.…

STIMPACT, a new shared platform for simulating and testing impacts on structural materials

In the face of strict regulatory requirements for aircraft and helicopters regarding the risks of impacts, manufacturers are coming up with specially adapted designs and using stronger materials. The Clément Ader Institute (ICA) along with two of its affiliated institutions ISAE-SUPAERO and University of Toulouse…
