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.
By a systematic study of the relations between coating characteristics/their performance on forming tools,optimised coatings will be developed to enhance the reliability and technical possibilities of cold forming processes.
Development of a breakthrough laser cutting system for thin metal sheet replacing standard punching techniques. The foreseen development requires the achievement of very high cutting speed (up to 100 m/min) and advanced control concepts.
Development of a salt bath based dense carbonitriding process for piston rods of rear shock absorbers, destined for the original equipment market, guaranteeing strength and dynamic durability.
The project aims to develop a smart active system to reduce the harmful chatter vibrations that appear in high speed milling machines and limit their precision and productivity
To research and develop a prototype for a new generation of extrusion machines in the chocolate industries that can extrude three or four layers on each other, consisting of different fillings with various properties and inclusions to a max. 6mm, without deviation.
The project aims at developing a new technology for welding hand tools without open flame. The project deals particularly with the welding of modified bituminous membranes for roofing.
The design, development and testing of a high-speed, precise and robust module for integrated and automated wafer handling, inspection and laser drilling; a necessary part for an economic production process of the back-contact photovoltaic cells of the future.
Development and demonstration of a tool, which can be used by several companies involved in the development of a wind turbine. It will allow sharing of information on vibro-acoustic component behaviour in early stages of the product development process and thus minimise developing time.
