EXPECTED IMPACTS

 

The development of Multipoint’s femtosecond laser system will improve the fabrication of HLFC (Hybrid Laminar Flow Control) structures and therefore, it will viable to apply them in the aerospace industry:

Reductions of at least 30% in the final cost in the fabrication of HLFC panels.

 

 

Less environmental impact due to the elimination of chemical post-processing procedures in the fabrication of HLFC panels.

 

 

Incrementation of the quality and performance of HLFC panels.

 

 

Fuel consumption reductions higher than 9% on commercial planes when HLFC panels applied.
