WiR - Wissentransfer Region Augsburg - Digital Engineering and Automation

Funded by: Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung

Program: Innovative Hochschule

Duration: 01.01.2018  31.12.2022

 

Content:

The WiR project deals with the possibilities for designing knowledge transfer and the establishment of an innovation laboratory in the field of "Digital Engineering and Automation". A worldwide unique test bench for robot-supported component testing and a demonstrator cell for the application of sensor systems for data fusion in real time will be implemented.

Relationship between the microstructure of materials and the formation of electromagnetic emission

Funded by: Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft

Program: Sachbeihilfe

Duration: 01.03.2018 -  28.02.2020

 

Content:

This DFG project is focused on investigating the fundamental relationships between the microstructure of materials and the formation of electromagnetic emissions during the fracture process. This is caused by a charge carrier imbalance during the breaking of bonds, which are stimulated by the dynamics of the fracture process.

MAI CC4 HybCar – Technologien zur effizienten Herstellung von hybriden CFK/Metall-Strukturbauteilen im Automobilbereich

Funded by: Bayerisches Staats­ministerium für Wirt­schaft, Infra­struktur, Ver­kehr und Tech­no­logie 

Program: Campus Carbon 4.0 – Neue Werkstoffe Bayern

Duration: 01.09.2017 -  31.08.2020

 

Content:

This project deals with the development of material systems which can be used as structural components (e.g. floor assembly) in future automobile series in the field of electromobility. The focus is on the characterization of the interface between metal and CFRP, as well as the forming behavior of the hybrid composite system.

MAI CC4 fastMOVE – Carbon-Hochgeschwindigkeits-5-Achssystem für die Bearbeitungsaufgaben der Zukunft

Funded by: Bayerisches Staats­ministerium für Wirt­schaft, Infra­struktur, Ver­kehr und Tech­no­logie 

Program: Campus Carbon 4.0 – Neue Werkstoffe Bayern

Duration: 01.09.2017 -  31.08.2020

 

Content:

Within the framework of this project, condition monitoring systems for machining systems such as CNC milling are being developed. The aim is to skilfully combine information from different sensor systems and to derive information on the condition of the CNC milling machine (Structural Health Monitoring) as well as on the machining process (Condition Monitoring).

MAI CC4 Hybrid – Hybride Verbundwerkstofflaminate und Fügetechnologien

Funded by: Bayerisches Staats­ministerium für Wirt­schaft, Infra­struktur, Ver­kehr und Tech­no­logie 

Program: Campus Carbon 4.0 – Neue Werkstoffe Bayern

Duration: 01.10.2017 -  30.09.2020

 

Content:

Hybrid metal-CFRP laminates have advantages over pure fibre composites in terms of impact tolerance and burn-through behaviour. However, up to now, these have only been laboriously produced manually and their range of applications has been limited. The use of thermoplastic matrix systems makes it possible to form and join composite laminates in the same way as classic metal beads. For this purpose, the material properties and formability of various material combinations are investigated.

MAI CC4 CosiMo  -     Composites for sustainable Mobility

Funded by: Bayerisches Staats­ministerium für Wirt­schaft, Infra­struktur, Ver­kehr und Tech­no­logie 

Program: Campus Carbon 4.0 – Neue Werkstoffe Bayern

Duration: 01.03.2018 -  28.02.2021

 

Content:

Within the scope of this project, new manufacturing technologies for future lightweight applications in automotive engineering are investigated on the basis of in-situ polymerization of PA-6. For this purpose, the infusion of the liquid starting material in particular is to be monitored in real time during infusion and polymerisation during production. Sensor systems will be developed and an evaluation strategy based on a digital process twin will be developed, which will allow real-time control of the plant.

Past projects

In the past, various projects were carried out together with research and application partners. The gallery presents an overview of the projects.

Dec. 31, 2015

Relation of electromagnetic and acoustic emission to temporal and spatial crack motion on a microscopic scale in polymers and carbon fibers

Within the framework of this project, the fundamental relationships of the formation of electromagnetic emission (EME) in polymers, reinforcing fibers and composites were investigated. At the same time, a measurement technique was established to record such EME in typical laboratory experiments and a theoretical model was developed to describe the EME source. (DFG)

MAI ZfP - Kombinierte zerstörungsfreie Prüfmethoden zur Qualitätssicherung von Faserverbundwerkstoffen

Within the MAIzfp project, round robin tests of NDT methods were organised, automated test solutions further developed and the modelling of NDT methods more closely examined. Particular attention was paid to the investigation of porosity, fibre waviness and impact damage in fibre composites. (BMBF, Spitzen­cluster MAI Carbon)

Dec. 31, 2015

MAI Plast - Entwicklung kosten­effizienter Ver­ar­bei­tungs­techno­lo­gien zur auto­matisierten Prozessierung von thermoplastischen Hoch­leistungs­verbund­werk­stoffen für Großserienanwendungen

Within the scope of the project the consolidation and deconsolidation as well as the forming behaviour of fibre-reinforced thermoplastics were investigated. For automated tape laying processes their implications were determined, and for PA-6 the influence of crystallinity on material properties was determined. (BMBF, Spitzen­cluster MAI Carbon)

Dec. 31, 2014

Forschungsverbund CFK/Metall-Mischbauweisen im Maschinen- & Anlagenbau - FORCIM³A

Interfacial modifications of metal-CFK hybrid layered composites were investigated. The use of modern coating methods significantly increased adhesion and prevented contact corrosion. (Bayerische Forschungsstiftung)

Dec. 31, 2013

ComBo - Effiziente Fertigungstechnologie fur Composite Boostersegmente

Within the framework of the project, manufacturing technologies for future boosters of the ARIANE-6 program were investigated. The main focus was on the production with automated tape laying processes for thermoplastic CFRP tapes, as well as the monitoring of material development with test methods such as acoustic emission analysis.
