Flexible communication network in the field of industrial production systems integrated in company operations to develop competitiveness in mfg. Methods/design, mfg.Systems/ technology and organisation/human resource development.
By a systematic study of the relations between coating characteristics/their performance on forming tools,optimised coatings will be developed to enhance the reliability and technical possibilities of cold forming processes.
Aims to develop a class of new mortars based on mortar 'portland + inert' and combined to different kinds of resins polymerising 'in situ' with improvement of some mechanical characteristics of concretes.
Development of new types of coatings to be applied to extrusion tools for bricks and tiles. This will increase the life of tools, improve the efficiency of the extrusion process and thus reduce the associated costs.
Development of an innovative coating process for pressure die casting dies that will, for the first time, use thin nano-crystalline diamond layers on steel parts. Application industries include autmotive, aerospace and domestic appliances.
The use of new, low cost processing agents in polymer processing as a way of reducing flow instabilities. This will improve the quality of the parts made and will increase the rate of production.
Development of a parallel kinematic machine based on 3 linear motions. As linear motors, the three ones of a 3-axis cnc milling centre are used. Project includes also the elaboration of an off-line programming /simulation software for various multi-axis cutting processes.
The target is the manufacturing of efficient aluminium (al) engines, cylinders, disc wheels, etc. The substitution of automobile steel parts with corresponding ones manufactured using al will be investigated.
Development of a new cad system for garment design which aims at offering a modern and robust 2d/3d geometric modeling environment. The envisaged 2d/3d garment cad system will take full advantage of robust 3d geometric modeling and 3d body scan technology
To compare various techniques that involve joining components, and to investigate the possibility of applying these advanced processes with a focus on the jewellery industry.
