Star-dip aims to research, develop and scale-up of an innovative dip-coatable multifunctional added-value sol-gel coating formulation and the corresponding dip-coating process to improve the corrosion resistance of different metal surface automotive and aeronautics components.
The companies gonvarri and fill will develop in the mutual research project "fit" a basic understanding of the heating, cooling and consolidation behavior of ud thermoplastic tapes and the use the examined heating concepts for the automation of thermoplastic fiber composite components.
Grinding is a challenging operation due to demanding specifications and difficult machinability of the parts. In this project, intelligent tools to prevent burning damage will be developed: wheel integrated temperature sensor, adapted machine, grinding model, and cnc software.
This project will develop a smart correction method for the purpose of zero-defect manufacturing that minimizes the thermally induced errors automatically during production. The method is based on innovative sensors that can detect structural deformations induced by all existing thermal effects.
An advanced tribological surface engineering solution based on ultrathick coatings (x10 conventional thickness) is proposed to increase in a 35% the lifetime of forming dies when extremely high demanding operations on high strength steels (hss) are considered
Cerplast project will obtain injection moulding tools for plastic industry through the development of advanced material formulations based on ceramics that will be processable by means of fused filament fabrication (fff) and jetting blinder, both technologies of 3d printing.
The development of new functional home textiles (bactericide/deodorant, antistatic and flame retardant) through inkjet printing direct on garment by means of eco-friendly hybrid inks that merge decorative and functional purposes.
