This work deals with the fabrication of an innovative hybrid thermoplastic prepreg by continuous hot forming process. The material, suitable also for Automated Fiber Placement process, is produced through a consolidation of commercial PEEK-Carbon Fiber prepreg sandwiched between two amorphous PEI films. Consolidation is performed by a purpose-designed automated prototype equipment operating on defined pressure and thermal cycles. Then preliminary tests on first trials produced were carried out. These activities have been developed in the frame of the NHYTE project, a Research and Innovation Action funded by the European Union's H2020 framework programme, under Grant Agreement No 723309 NOVOTECH acting as Coordinator presents this paper on behalf of all Partners of the project. The proof of NHYTE project concept is the manufacturing of a fastener free and high performing fuselage portion demonstrator.
