The MATCH II project aims to develop a manufacturing process (with control over the AFP preform, material health, and geometry) for thick thermoplastic composite parts used in primary aerospace structures.


In the aerospace industry, the primary industrial challenges involve integrating new technologies to reduce production costs while
maintaining structural performance.


The industrial significance of this project lies in the development of a differentiating technology that meets aerospace requirements:
cost-effective manufacturing, high performance, durability, and high production rates (60 to 100 per month), all while considering environmental constraints.


To address these challenges, the choice has been made to use high-performance thermoplastic matrix composites. This choice allows us to harness the advantages of composites, such as their lightweight properties, while also benefiting from their intrinsic ability to be recycled, reused, and assembled through welding
