The spanish company idec (with its rtd subcontractor tecnalia) and the austrian company fill, will develop a fully automated rtm process fr automotive and aeronautic applications. The goal is to generate a solution being a demonstrator equipment prototype ready for operation.
Development of a new hss roll grade for improved productivity, surface quality and operational safety in a hot strip mill
Tools aims to develop new technologies in tool manufacturing to improve their efficiency in the production of composite parts. In order to enhance tooling behaviour, tools aims two main purposes: optimization of tooling material and geometry and development of more intelligent tools
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.
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
