New generation of forging tools
Novel methods of heat treatment and thermo-mechanical treatment of tools and machine parts
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.
Development of manufacturing technology for a new generation of tools coated by chemical vapour deposition system to increase their service life and strength.
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.
By improving the riveting technique and the fatigue life prediction codes, we will increase the operational life and the safety of the aircraft structure.
The aim is to focus on and study contamination control mechanisms and technologies of fibrous engineered textile products and to develop new types of fibrous products, active finishings, their processing and new business service activities.
There are two main challenges: 1. To become sustainable by reducing resource consumption, managing transport and utility networks in a sustainable way, reducing environmental and man-made impacts, improving safety and security and protecting cultural heritage; 2. To become a demand-driven sector.
The project aims to develop gap with a low structural defect level by using the vgf procedure. This advanced material targets micro lenses for deep infrared sensors used in monitoring of stressed structures.
