We develop new manufacturing methods, integrating processes, and components.
Novel concepts for safer, lighter, circular and smarter vehicle structure design for enhanced crashworthiness and higher compatibility
This destination includes activities addressing safe and smart mobility services for passengers and goods.
Europe needs to manage the transformation of supply-based transport into safe, resilient and sustainable transport and demand-driven, smart mobility services for passengers and goods. Suitable research and innovation will enable significant safety, environmental, economic and social benefits by reducing accidents caused by human error, decreasing traffic congestion, reducing energy consumption and emissions of vehicles, increasing efficiency and productivity of freight transport operations. To succeed in this transformation, Europe's aging (and not always sustainable) transport infrastructure needs to be prepared for enabling cleaner and smarter operations.
Europe needs also to maintain a high-level of transport safety for its citizens. Resilience should be built into the transport systems to prevent, mitigate and recover from disruptions. Research and innovation will underpin the three safety pillars: technologies, regulations and human factors.
PRESS RELEASE 01/2022
thermoPre ENGINEERING GmbH is pleased to announce the launch of the EU-funded Research and Innovation Action (RIA) SALIENT, which is synonymous for "Novel Concepts for Safer, Lighter, Circular and Smarter Vehicle Structure Design for Enhanced Crashworthiness and Higher Compatibility".
Production of unidirectional continuous fibre-reinforced thermoplastics for customer-specific series applications open to all industry sectors (acronym: FiberPre)
Together with our partner ERMAFA Sondermaschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH, we bring research results to economically viable industrial production.
The aim of the project is to set up a pilot line for single-stage direct processing for industrial use. The economic use is intended for bulk and high-performance plastics in combination with different reinforcement fibre types as well as with different reinforcement structures.
As a cooperation partner, thermoPre ENGINEERING GmbH contributes its expertise in the field of material, process and component development. A particular research focus is on the development of an online quality monitoring system for quality assurance of the semi-finished products produced with the pilot line, including the implementation of the required components into the pilot line.
