The aim of the MONOCLE project is to develop a methodology for monitoring the infusion process for large, thick, unique or near-unique parts, and to provide operators with a decision-making tool.


Nowadays, NAVAL GROUP considers the infusion process for manufacturing composites of high mechanical performance at controlled costs. Infusion allows access to larger structures because the polymerization occurs at ambient temperature and is seen as a key process for the future.


Although simple, the infusion of complex parts exhibits several challenges, hence the need to develop tools to help operators in the decision-making process.



The results of the project will enable NAVAL GROUP to continue producing compliant large parts with high thicknesses using tools
that complement the experience and know-how of its operators. 


The methodology could be adapted to other industrial sectors (wind power, tidal power, marine, aeronautics) for large parts using other manufacturing processes.
