[16/07/2020] - RECOTRANS progress at AEMAC Magazine
The collaboration among our partners AIMPLAS, TECNOCLAD LASER SOLUTIONS, ARKEMA and FRAUNHOFER ICT within the RECOTRANS Project has made possible the publication of the article "Hybrid laser joining of thermoplastic composites with stainless steel" on the last issue of the AEMAC - Asociación Española de Materiales Compuestos magazine Vol-4 num.3 pgs. 115-120.
[31/03/2020] - RECOTRANS article published at Compositi Magazine
Publish an article in a magazine in an opportunity to reach a broader audience. The RECOTRANS project has been published in the Italian magazine Compositi Magazine, number 55 pages 31-33 .
With the title of Resin Transfer Moulding and Pultrusion Manufacturing of Recyclable Multi-Material Component for the Transport Sector, Rocío Ruiz, Researcher at AIMPLAS, has explained the project, its objectives and and how they will contribute to the composite industry mainly in the transport sector.
The article can be read in two languages: Italian and English.
The magazine AUTOREVISTA, on its may number page 46, includes an article about several EU projects (including RECOTRANS) reflecting the evolution of of advanced plastics and composites in the autmotive sector in which AIMPLAS has contributed withits experience and knowledge.
[01/05/2019] - Compression RTM of reactive thermoplastic composites using microwaves and cure monitoring
Scientific papers publications give the
opportunity of showing promising results of research. This is the case of the
paper called “Compression RTM of reactive thermoplastic composites using
microwaves and cure monitoring” published in the Scientist Direct journal. This
paper shows the advantage of three key drivers: the thermoplastic resin
(ARKEMA), the microwave (MW) curing technology (Fraunhofer-ICT) and the on-line
monitoring curing control (Synthesites). The combination of these aspects
brings about improvements on the current manufacturing process of composite
parts which use thermoset resin and long curing process. Apart from that, the
advantage of the on-line monitoring of the resin curing process allow to
optimise the process itself and obtain a high-quality product.
[31/01/2018] - D1.2 Report on regulatory, standardization and safety issues
In the present deliverable a complete survey on regulatory issues to be treated, internal policy as well as all standardization requirements and safety issues related to the transport industry is reported.
Specific rail and road requirements were clearly identified. Materials and technologies determined and used in the project were subject to a scientific analysis to determine the regulatory risks associated. This study also identifies the possible issues regarding the materials to be used within the project in order to anticipate future restriction and/or "interdiction" due to regulations and risks associated with future production parts.
