Abstract:

The objective of this PRAM project was to develop a depainting process that eliminates the use of chemicals to depaint aircraft. Additional goals were to replace cost and prevent the generation of large volumes of hazardous waste. The new process must be able to remove paint from aircraft efficiently, economically, safely, and without any damage to the aircraft surfaces. The PRAM project is envisioned as having three phases a laboratory development phase 1 current phase, a production validation phase 2 procure a mechanical movable model, and phase 3, a fully robotized system to optimize and maximize production output.
