The objective is to optimize the design procedures of aluminium moulds, considering new methodologies, as a way to increase the productivity, efficiency and quality of the manufacturing and injection mould process.
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.
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.
Research and development of materials and innovation of technologies for precious metal alloy processing, especially gold, for jewellery and dental purposes so as to increase production quality according to european union norms.
The aim is to develop a new paint stripping process capable of cleaning several dozen square metres per hour.
Development of lightweight, high-performance magnesium alloys for the automotive, electronic/ aerospace industries with maximum extrusion speed, meeting performance requirements/ considerable environmental benefits.
