Development of a breakthrough laser cutting system for thin metal sheet replacing standard punching techniques. The foreseen development requires the achievement of very high cutting speed (up to 100 m/min) and advanced control concepts.
The development of a mobile self-erecting tower crane, which excels with high load capabilities and a high performance all-terrain base. The crane will be equipped with advanced control systems for automation and an anti-sway control system.
The aim of the project is the development of new plastic materials.
Development of a lubricant for the warm compaction of metal powders, together with the associated mixing technology, in order to produce powder metallurgical components with a very high density (98% of wrought density).
Development and implementation of innovations in process design, optimisation and control of the ring rolling process for many strategic industrial sectors (e.G. Transport, energy, aerospace) to improve competitiveness, increase product quality and reduce waste.
Cost effective lifetime enhancement of forming tools will be achieved through the application of advanced materials and processing technologies, the design of dies and inserts, and the optimisation of forming technologies.
Development and elaboration of prototype production of multilayer packaging materials consisting of paper coated with new polymers from renewable resources.
Development of an excavation system (tunnel boring machines and lining) to construct tunnels through rock deformations that are unavoidable within the alpine region. By reducing production costs, european traffic routes will be considerably extended.
To increase our market share in the heating - sanitary equipment - plumbing distribution network in the area of towel driers.
Study and development of innovative electric power train systems that will be integrated in personal mobility devices for helping postmen with their mail deliveries in urban areas.
