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 new intelligent and environmentally-friendly concrete mixer is a system for preparing a concrete provider with just-in-time control of the dosage and water-sand-cement mixing of high quality and safety.
Development of a new, ultralight aircraft prototype using new materials and an innovative aerodynamic design.
Explosive concrete spalling at high temperatures results in serious economic and human safety problems. A research programme will study innovative concretes using new fibre types able to exclude toxic effects and avoid spalling.
The aim is to understand the behaviour of filled thermoplastics during injection moulding process in order to be able to enlarge the use of thermoplastics in car parts from bodywork to structural design.
Development of new thermoplastic honeycomb sandwich core materials and their production process. The innovative new folded honeycomb core enables a fast core production from a thermoplastic sheet.
The aim of the project is the development of new plastic materials.
Development and implementation of innovations in process design, optimisation and control of the ring rolling process for many strategic industrial sectors (e.G. Transport, energy, aerospace) to improve competitiveness, increase product quality and reduce waste.
New bioactive nanostructured composite implant materials will be developed for human bone substitutes. Development is based on the plasma processing of ceramic nanopowders and chemical technology for the production of nanosized hydroxyapatite powders.
