Ecobogie is a novel bogie that will deliver environmental benefits for freight vehicles by decreasing noise emissions by at least 10 db and reducing mass by up to 1000 kg per bogie thus reducing the carbon foot print and track damage and increasing the capacity of existing rail infrastructure
The automotive sector requires high throughput production based on a flexible solution capable to manufacture different parts without cost associated to hard tooling. This project will develop and validate the technology required to manufacture blanks by means of high speed laser cutting.
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.
Development of a new honeycomb sandwich core material and related process. This innovative new folded honeycomb core enables fast core production from one continuous sheet and produces reliable core-skin bonding.
The aim is to develop a system solution for high-speed cutting machine tools which will include a new spindle system with active magnetic bearing and adaptive process control, using the spindle signals.
The aim is to develop new materials for a barrel and screw which are the most essential parts of a (twin) screw extruder and carry out research and development to find new drilling technologies.
The r&d project proposes the development, production and marketing of a competitive system of two linked groups of new, high performance flooring materials for the repair of damage to industrial floors of every thickness.
Select alloys for electronics production. Investigate consistent production/rework/repair processes. Modelling deformation/degradation behaviour of selected alloys. reliability testing recommendations.Reliability estimations.
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 aim is to develop a new range of thermoplastic composite sandwich panels (which are more cost-effective, lightweight, high impact and inherently recyclable) and their use in a range of lightweight structures.
