  • Publication number: 20190366599
    Abstract: A matched compression die apparatus comprising an additively manufactured core member and an additively manufactured cavity member may be used to manufacture compression-molded parts, such as thermoset and/or thermoplastic panels for aircraft interiors. The apparatus may include generic frame structures configured to support different additively manufactured core and cavity members configured for molding different panels. The additively manufactured core and cavity members may be made of metal and/or a polymer material. The apparatus may include a heating mechanism (e.g., heat blankets) configured to heat the core and cavity members sufficiently to mold a workpiece into a desired shape.

  • Patent number: 9321533
    Abstract: Aircraft passageway storage units are disclosed herein. An example apparatus includes a storage assembly to be supported on a floor of an interior of a fuselage of an aircraft. The storage assembly has a corner to be adjacent a passageway of the interior of the fuselage, and the passageway is to extend around the corner. The example apparatus also includes a door coupled to the storage assembly. The door extends from a first side of the storage assembly to a second side of the storage assembly and defines a portion of the corner. The door is to cover an opening of a compartment of the storage assembly when the door is in a closed position, and the opening is to extend from the first side to the second side.
