✓ Use cases and value chains with special consideration of HP-SMC, Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) for specific production and application scenarios ✓ Established best practice solutions will be demonstrated ✓ Fields of action for targeted development will be defined with remaining key challenges ✓ New scenarios to solve the key challenges will be developed
During our final project meeting of the joint partner market and technology study “Energy Storage Systems” on November 27th 2018, AZL resumed the project results comprising all relevant energy storage systems and their function principles, used materials and production technology as well as the supply chains and markets. During the final meeting together with the[…]
Managing Director Dr. Michael Emonts was invited to the African Advanced Manufacturing & Composites Show at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in South Africa as an international Keynote speaker. Dr. Michael Emonts’s keynote speech “Lightweight Production: a unique approach for the close collaboration between research and the international lightweight industry” represented the AZL and brought our[…]
AZL is expanding its existing Workgroup “High-Speed RTM Matrices” to a new Workgroup named “Advanced Thermoset Production”, based on requests from various AZL Partners. The extension was motivated by numerous innovations in the area of thermoset processes which only can be partly covered by the so-far workgroup focus on RTM. The Workgroup “Advanced Thermoset Production”[…]
The next meeting of the AZL Workgroup “Composites in Buildings & Infrastructure” is taking place at BAU 2019 in Munich to closely involve representatives of the building industry and to network with end-users and architects. After a successful second workgroup meeting, the AZL is taking the next meeting directly to the source of new input[…]
For the 5th time already, JEC and AZL join forces to realize a special exhibition during JEC World 2019 – We are looking forward to meeting you at “Composites in Action” in Paris. The purpose of the partnership is to jointly promote actual developments and insights regarding integrative lightweight production technology at JEC World to[…]
In a study, AZL together with multiple companies identifies potentials and challenges of using thermoplastic tapes in injection molded components. In a follow-up project, AZL together with the established and extended consortium from the first project continue the development of a game changing machine system for manufacturing tailored composite blanks in high volumes at medium[…]
Composites offer a broad potential to be used in furniture parts and structures. This is why, AZL together with companies from the composite and furniture industry will launch a new Market and Technology Study to identify potentials and future applications for composites in furniture. The study will start with a kick-off during Composites Europe in[…]
Our partner, the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) of RWTH Aachen University is installing a new ENGEL injection molding system in its technical center.
AZL and IKV are starting a new Joint Market and Technology Study “Potentials and Challenges of Thermoplastic Tapes for SME Injection Molders.
The AZL together with 12 Partner Companies completed a Joint R&D Partner Project to develop a new machine prototype allowing the ultra-fast manufacturing of tailored composite blanks. The follow-up project will start on October 10th, 2018.
