Flexible communication network in the field of industrial production systems integrated in company operations to develop competitiveness in mfg. Methods/design, mfg.Systems/ technology and organisation/human resource development.
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.
The objective is to develop a stamping process, using tools similar to those used in series production, capable of manufacturing prototypes of complex sheet metal parts in two weeks.
Development of know-how for innovative vehicles with high safety and ecocompatibility levels.
Development of the technological background to make a step forward in the manufacturing integration approach, including the assembling of metal components in bi-material mouldings.
Development of an e-government transactional platform to meet the goals of the e-europe 2005 plan regarding accessibility, interoperability and interaction.
Development of a new prototype of high cadence laser welding system for short stitches substituting resistance spots for 3d automotive components.
The main objective is the development of a new manufacturing process for low-medium series of plastic components, using polyamide and polylactame with low and longfibre reinforcement by centrifuged moulding.
New polymer composites reinforced with carbon nanofibres and nanotubes will be investigated. The goals will be optimisation of the production leading to the best product for mechanical properties and the development of prototypes.
Development of an innovative machining technology to solve the machining problem of highly hazardous materials like graphite, wood and fibre reinforced composites by extracting the generated chips through the tool and spindle.
