New generation of forging tools
Integrated monolithic GaN laser bars for industrial applications
Friction stir welding (fsw) will be applied to a range of materials/be researched to achieve high welding speeds in increased joint thickness. Processes will be industrialised for real components and applied in commercial production.
Pulsed laser deposition (pld) is a well-established laboratory coating technology. Up to now pld has not become a standard industrial coating technique. The aim of this project is to optimise the suitability of pld for industrial applications.
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.
Increasing the productivity and reducing energy consumption in the production process of thin sheet metals, while preserving the highest requirements regarding mechanical properties, for a variety of applications including the automobile industry.
Introduction of steel panels into ship structural designs to reduce manufacturing costs, increase internal space and increase the resistance of the structure, which improves safety in relation to environmentally hazardous cargo.
By improving the riveting technique and the fatigue life prediction codes, we will increase the operational life and the safety of the aircraft structure.
Development of the new approach for tanker structure protection by coating of internal space of tanks with polyurethane layer? For fulfilling of international anti-pollution requirements.
