R&d of an innovative on-line colour mixing system, indlucing fluid colorants and the required process equipment, which enables the plastics industry to colour thermoplastics during the moulding and extruding processes.
The aim is to develop a compartment cassette and specially designed handling device for airfreight and the loading and unloading of (principally) narrow body aircraft.
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.
The objective is to optimize the design procedures of aluminium moulds, considering new methodologies, as a way to increase the productivity, efficiency and quality of the manufacturing and injection mould process.
The aim of this project is to develop a time-dependent, feature-based method for dies including the possibility of inserts, using profile-geometry representation and extrusion simulation methods.
Research and development of new cast and wrought machinable brasses with reduced lead content. The new materials will exhibit very good machinability and be used for the fabrication of parts by cutting on automatic machines.
Software and hardware systems for power supply quality and status monitoring and bakc-up powered equipment for consumption control.
Study to develop/commercially validate an inter-modal system for trans-european freight transfer between nordic region and s.E. Europe whose central building block will be a "blue shuttle train" connecting two inter-modal centres.
The aim of the project is to prolong the life-time of p/m ledeburitic steel tools by upgrading the tool material and applying various surfacing techniques.
Development of a rail mine locomotive for hazardous environments with methane explosion risks. Optimization of some segment parameters so final emissions achieve a 50% maximum of permitted limits.
