Natural Laminar Flow

Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) has been identified as a key technology to contribute to the reduction of emissions in aircraft transport. However, the stringent NLF surface requirements are difficult to be reached with conventional manufacturing processes. Thus, the aim of NOGAP project is to develop a fully automated gap filler device that is able to performance in a 3D environment and achieve surface finish within NLF tolerances at high production rates.
