Current projects

Component and technology development for the digitalised and process-monitored production of complex closing wires with the associated "INNO-QS-SDK" QA system

The aim of this project is to develop a fully automated and functional manufacturing process for the production of closing wires with integrated process and quality monitoring. The aims are to reduce waste and energy consumption, conserve resources and increase productivity. Existing challenges in locking wire production are to be investigated and solved with the help of innovative optical monitoring as part of this research project.

Study on the development of a new type of weft laying system for filament-reinforced adhesive tapes

In order to achieve the goal of developing a new type of weft laying system for thread-reinforced tapes, packaging materials and adhesive tapes are systematized. Technologies and their requirements are then systematized.

effiLoad - Development of a research function pattern plant for the continuous production of near-net-shape, load-path-compliant and waste-reduced preforms for high-performance components

The aim of the project is to develop the effiLoad overall system and the modular overall concept of the basic machine to accommodate the modules for tape laying and the hybrid roving fixation of the basic system. In addition, research function samples are manufactured on the machine.

Study on the development of a test device for determining the puncture force in technical textiles

The objective of the innovation award is the development of a technology study and conception of a testing device for testing technical textiles and determining the penetration force. First of all, a systematisation of the already existing testing devices is to be developed. Furthermore, the standards that already deal with this topic are to be systematised and evaluated. Subsequently, a test device is to be designed with the help of which the testing of technical textiles and the determination of the penetration force is possible. Deviating tests or tests that are not possible on the test device are to be explicitly listed.

Study for the development of a fabrication device for braided structure

The objective of the innovation award is the development of a new type of finishing system for textile-based rope structures with automated solution concepts for the work steps of unwinding, wrapping, cutting and stacking. The functional focus of the development is on the manufacture of sealing and insulating tapes, which are used in large quantities in the production of stoves, chimneys, pipes and engine parts.

Development of new solutions for continuously depositing high-strength reinforcing fibres in areas of greatest stress and applying them as load-bearing structures to the basic structure.

On the basis of classical textile technology, new approaches are to be developed which make it possible to continuously deposit high-strength reinforcing fibres in the areas of greatest stress. In this way, cheaper reinforcing fibres with a lower property portfolio can be used as load-bearing structures and the expensive and high-strength reinforcing fibres (e.g. carbon, aramid,...) are continuously applied to the basic structure in a way that is appropriate to the load path.

Study on the development of a plant technology for Z-reinforcement of hybrid materials

The demands placed on fibre-plastic composite components are increasing. The focus here is on multi-material systems that are to be produced by using intelligent manufacturing and processing steps. Such new material systems or hybrid materials require the development of new manufacturing technologies and suitable plant systems. The aim of the development is a material-variable manufacturing technology which allows the flexible adaptation of the semi-finished product structures to the component requirements. One of these requirements is the Z-reinforcement of hybrid materials. Textile-based processes are used to produce reinforcing structures of variable thickness, which have to be bonded together in the Z-direction with additional materials such as foams, nonwovens and cover layers made of knitted fabrics, woven fabrics etc. The Z-direction is also used for the production of the Z-structure. The result is flat semi-finished products that meet the requirements of lightweight construction.
