Project description

The aim of the MRO-PrinE research project – Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul of Printed Electronics – is to develop suitable and fast maintenance and repair processes for printed electronics on interior components. In addition to the damage patterns of printed electronics, the influence of damage to the sandwich substrate materials on the printed electronics is also considered. In addition, procedures are being developed that enable the separation of substrate and printed electronics and thus ensure recycling of the raw materials.

The research project focuses on the following topics:

  • Detection of damage mechanisms, both for cabin components and for applied printed structures
  • Concept development for rapid damage detection
  • Development of fast and efficient repair and maintenance concepts for local damages of functionalized cabin components
  • Reliability investigation for printed structures with and without damage and repair measures
  • MRO instructions for functionalized interior components
