This innovative r&d project will be executed by two parties in order to share the technological and financial risks involved in developing a ground-breaking helmet platform with increased protection against rotational force to the brain.
Plant Hybrid Model
Efficient ceramic materials machining
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 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.
There are two main challenges: 1. To become sustainable by reducing resource consumption, managing transport and utility networks in a sustainable way, reducing environmental and man-made impacts, improving safety and security and protecting cultural heritage; 2. To become a demand-driven sector.
Pro-factory is a european network that aims to bring forward and coordinate applications-oriented, bottom-up, collaborative r&d projects in production and robotics for greater competitiveness and sustainability.
The main purpose of the project is the definition, development and verification of new polymeric nano-composite materials for use as structural profiles in facades as a substitution for metallic profiles. This will lead to several advantages.
The scope is to develop and verify a new lwpt design platform for large production equipment that provide solutions for aircraft industry by being cost efficient and providing performance superior to existing systems based on metals.
