IKV to present its research at International Motor Show in Frankfurt 

  • New processes for the large-volume production of fibre-reinforced plastic parts, based on the example of the production of an engine hood by the gap impregnation process
  • Interactive repair workshop of the future for electric vehicles with CRP materials as part of the project “Leading technologies for SMEs”
  • Efficient production of complex composite parts by 3D fibre spraying and process integration through laser-based functionalisation
  •  Production of complex plastic optics taking the examples of an LED focus lens made of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and the multi-layer process
  • Physical foam injection moulding process “ProFoam”
  • Variothermal mould temperature control in injection moulding for outstanding surface quality on interior and exterior parts
  • Integrated design and production of hybrid plastic/metal structural parts, based on the example of a near-series front end
  • Integrative simulation of the mechanical behaviour of short and long fibre-reinforced thermoplastic parts
  • Predicting the damage behaviour and designing fibre-reinforced plastics in the event of a crash and under fatigue load

are the main topics of the Institute of Plastics Research (IKV) in Industry and the Skilled Crafts at RWTH Aachen University at the 66th International Motor Show, due to be held in Frankfurt am Main/Germany on September 15 – 27, 2015. The institute will present a holistic view of the entire value chain, from design and simulation, via material technology and production engineering, to the analysis and testing of plastic parts for automotive construction.
