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.
Demonstrate a novel form of hybrid electric drive line which combines the virtues of the bus and tram without the need for track or overhead lines and show how this introduces a modal shift away from the passenger car.
Development of a technology for aluminium alloy sheet production by continuous strip casting and cold rolling. material property optimization with respect to applications in transport components and systems.
Development of bonded abrasives technology via innovation of highly porous, unique class tool systems for ecological abrasive manufacture and design of ecologically compatible abrasive processes based on high-speed machining (>120 m/s).
Research and development of new cast and wrought machinable brasses with reduced lead content. The new materials will exhibit very good machinability and be used for the fabrication of parts by cutting on automatic machines.
Software and hardware systems for power supply quality and status monitoring and bakc-up powered equipment for consumption control.
Study to develop/commercially validate an inter-modal system for trans-european freight transfer between nordic region and s.E. Europe whose central building block will be a "blue shuttle train" connecting two inter-modal centres.
The aim of the project is to prolong the life-time of p/m ledeburitic steel tools by upgrading the tool material and applying various surfacing techniques.
Development of a rail mine locomotive for hazardous environments with methane explosion risks. Optimization of some segment parameters so final emissions achieve a 50% maximum of permitted limits.
