LACE - Lightweight All Composite Elevator
The innovation is an elevator with the
following internal dimensions: 1.1 x 1.4
x 2.05m (height), completely made of
composite materials, including the doors
(cabin and building doors). The elevator
is basically made of a floor and a ceiling
panel in the shape of a trough. The
troughs are manufactured from CFRP
sandwich panels, 4 wall-corner elements
(also manufactured as CFRP sandwich
panels) and 3 design wall panels manufactured as translucent GFRP panels.
With this construction, all the vertical
loads from the ceiling are transferred to
the floor panel by the corner elements.
The design of all the parts is specifically
optimized for the use of fibres. The outer
side of the 4 CFRP wall-corner elements

is covered with very thin silver GFRP
sheets in order to generate an eye-catching look. All the parts are manufactured using the Vacuum Assisted Process
(VAP®) technology. In comparison with
common lift car designs, the general
design of the car is aligned on the special
needs of composite design, avoiding the
common car and sling design as the car
and the sling are combined. This way, the
rope suspension uses 4 ropes in the corners of a chassis that is isolated from the
car itself and avoids any impact sound
transferred from the ropes. Therefore,
no bending forces are transferred to the
car itself. The car is directly guided in 4
(instead of 2) guide rails on the car walls,
using the load-bearing feature of the
composite walls. This results in a consi-

LEEToRB - A lightweight, energy efficient tooling
for rotor blade manufacturing
This project consists in the development of CFRP RTM tooling with
integrated electrical heating for the
manufacture of helicopter rotor blades.
The tooling consists of a CFRP shell
structure mounted on a steel frame,
which ensures the connection to the
RTM press. The electric heating layer
is integrated in the mid-plane of the
CFRP shell with a constant distance to
the tool surface. The key characteristics
of the tooling are: closed mould with a
length of 5m, a width of 1m, a maximum tooling temperature of 180°C and
a maximum heat-up rate of 10°C/min.
Tooling is of major importance in
CFRP part manufacturing. Contrary to
manufacturing processes for homogenous solid materials, CFRP materials
are created inside the tool from their
two components: fibre and matrix. Therefore, the tooling material and design
affect the laminate quality and the
geometrical tolerances of the part. The

advantages of using CFRP as a tooling
material and heating layer material are:
similar thermal expansion of the tooling
and part, low weight resulting in a low
thermal mass, fast and dynamic heat-up
and easy manageability of the tooling at
reduced costs.
This new type of RTM tooling offers
new possibilities for large-scale manufacturing of high-performance composite parts. The unique features of
the tooling are a similar coefficient of
thermal expansion (CTE) of tooling
and part, a homogeneous tooling
surface temperature distribution and
a dynamic temperature control. Thus,
large parts with high geometrical
tolerances can be manufactured while
still meeting aeronautic standards. This
tooling technology is much cheaper,
with costs comparable to invar and even
aluminium or steel tooling. Additionally, the light shell structure of the
tooling makes it easy to handle in a

elevator. The size of the elevator shaft is
reduced to an absolute minimum and is
thereby currently unique.

production environment. A stand-alone
solution without a press is also possible.
This leads to very low initial investment
costs. In combination with the very low
operating costs, a powerful package of
advantages is generated by this tooling
concept.
