New uses for environmentally beneficial moulding material binders (alkali silicate basis) for the foundry industry with optimal properties for moulding material preparation and used moulding material regeneration/recycling.
Will support further development of abatement strategies within europe by providing an improved scientific basis for the quantification of source-receptor relationships for photo-oxidants and acidifying substances.
Optimized discontinuous duplex/multi-functional coatings, combining a pulse-plasma nitriding, implantation, pvd, which boosts blanking tools performance as improved mechanical support of coatings enables them to withstand higher loads.
The aim of the project is to develop multi-operational rotor die-forming technology and suitable equipment, combining compacting, sintering, coining, retreating and control for production of precision parts from powder materials.
Optimisation technology of continuous steel casting, ensuring billet quality for subsequent casting. Development of original models and systems for the required assortment and their verification in industrial operation at the ccm.
Project aim is to implement ethoxylated fatty acid methyl esters as a new bulk production, non-ionic surfactants and their commercialisation in the detergent industry.
Crane bridge control system with in-built intelligence sensitive to both device and crane track running conditions and environmental influences. Expected outcome: improved crane reliability, safety and accuracy.
Development of technology for the manufacturing and processing of wires and rods designed for the manufacturing of high-strength pressings in strength class 800-1200 mpa (mega pascals) without final heat treatment.
The focus will be on both on eco-design and end-of-life management, particularly because of the legislative impact of the european commission's new directive (dg xi), which will probably come into force in 2003.
Ledeburitic steels prepared using the rapid solidification effect, as well as those with the addition of ceramic particles, will be developed. The coating of final steel and hard materials will be investigated.
