Development of a new generation of flat knitting machines, based on an innovative concept.
The aim is to produce a series of high speed spindles especially but not exclusively, intended for milling operations, with increasing rotational speed performances (up to 100,000 r.P.M) and power (up to 100 kilowatts).
The aim of this project is to define a new system for cutting clothes. This technology does not yet exist on the world market.
A new range of presses having: nominal force from 3,500 to 20,000 kn, impact energy from 46 to 300 kj, max impact speed from 800 to 1,100 mm/s and tool contact time not more than 15 ms.
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.
Collaborative industrial r&d programme dedicated to "software for software-intensive systems" that is being developed by the european information technology producers and users' industry to boost european competitiveness.
Evaluation to ascertain whether immunostimulating reconstituted influenza virosomes (irivs) containing hcv proteins or peptides induce a cellular and humoral immune response in vitro and in vivo.
The objective of this strategic project is to apply new biotechnological tools and agronomic technologies to improve the european forestry sector.
The aim is to study, develop and produce new tools and systems for quarrying and manufacturing of quality stones in order to achieve an ecological advantage and manage flexible integration in jit (just-in-time) enterprises.
Dna will be a r&d strategic eureka factory cluster on advanced competitive and sustainable processes for relevant european manufacturing sectors. Dna will launch and clusterise several projects with special attention to sme's.
