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.
The aim is to further develop the use of fibre-reinforced plastics in rail suspensions and demonstrate the advantages of advanced suspensions using such materials.
Development of a new honeycomb sandwich core material and related process. This innovative new folded honeycomb core enables fast core production from one continuous sheet and produces reliable core-skin bonding.
The aim is to develop new materials for a barrel and screw which are the most essential parts of a (twin) screw extruder and carry out research and development to find new drilling technologies.
Development of a new, 6 metre ultra-light tender weighing only 50% of the existing model. To achieve this weight saving, a new hull, based on new composite technology with the propulsion system integrated in it, will be developed.
Explosive concrete spalling at high temperatures results in serious economic and human safety problems. A research programme will study innovative concretes using new fibre types able to exclude toxic effects and avoid spalling.
R&d of an innovative on-line colour mixing system, indlucing fluid colorants and the required process equipment, which enables the plastics industry to colour thermoplastics during the moulding and extruding processes.
The aim of this project is to develop a time-dependent, feature-based method for dies including the possibility of inserts, using profile-geometry representation and extrusion simulation methods.
Development of lightweight, high-performance magnesium alloys for the automotive, electronic/ aerospace industries with maximum extrusion speed, meeting performance requirements/ considerable environmental benefits.
The aim is to understand the behaviour of filled thermoplastics during injection moulding process in order to be able to enlarge the use of thermoplastics in car parts from bodywork to structural design.
