Environmentally-friendly plant growth regulators and plant protection agents produced from different forest and field plant materials will be developed and evaluated for use in organic agriculture.
Development of the technological background to make a step forward in the manufacturing integration approach, including the assembling of metal components in bi-material mouldings.
Generation of a new set of internet tools with different functions to allow smes to work with software solutions of high utility that were previously limited to large corporations.
Development of new types of coatings to be applied to extrusion tools for bricks and tiles. This will increase the life of tools, improve the efficiency of the extrusion process and thus reduce the associated costs.
Development of an innovative coating process for pressure die casting dies that will, for the first time, use thin nano-crystalline diamond layers on steel parts. Application industries include autmotive, aerospace and domestic appliances.
The aim of the project is the development of new plastic materials.
Development of a processing technology for high temperature and (thermo)shock resistant ceramics. Successes have been claimed, however risks and costs have so far prohibited market applications.
Investigation of the formation of casting defects in light metal foundry alloys, including for example contraction behaviour, determination of mushy zone permeability and simulations of porosity distribution in castings.
Development of manufacturing technology for a new generation of tools coated by chemical vapour deposition system to increase their service life and strength.
Utilisation of new steel qualities and technologies will be applied for thin-walled high strength tube production. Trip effect assisted steels combined with bake hardening treatment will be utilised to achieve extraordinary properties.
