Virtual Optimisation for the right heating Concept

Virtual optimisation for the right heating concept

Gerade bei komplexen Bauteilen besteht die Gefahr, dass der Start der Produktion durch benötigte Änderungsschleifen des Werkzeugs nach hinten verschoben wird. Mit Hilfe moderner Simulationsansätze lassen sich Werkzeuge und Prozesse komplett am Computer auslegen, wodurch teure Nacharbeiten am realen Werkzeug entfallen. Im Falle eines komplexen LSR-Bauteils wurde das Heizkonzept so optimiert, dass das Werkzeug ab dem ersten Einsatz auf der Maschine gute Bauteile produzierte. more...

Adhession between LSR and Thermoplastic

Long-therm stability of the Silicatization and the Influence on the Adhesion Properties between Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)-Thermoplastic Composites

The focus of this research project is on the adhesion properties between liquid silicone rubber and thermoplastics. By silicatization of the thermoplastic surfaces an adhesion between both components could be produced or improved. more...

Influencing the anisotropic material behavour of TPV

Characterization of anisotropic material behavior of injection moulded TPV-products

Thermoplastic vulcanizates show a strong anisotropy in their material properties after injection moulding. For example, mechanical properties like stiffness or strength can differ longitudinally or transversely to the flow direction by a factor of two. In a research project important factors (process, material, geometry) influencing the anisotropic material behaviour of TPV were identified. With the […] more...

Projectile injection technique – Injection moulding of fibre-reinforced, elastomeric media hoses

For the manufacturing of fibre-reinforced, elastomeric media hoses the projectile injection technique, a special injection moulding process, is examined as an alternative to established extrusion process. Our investigations show that in an one-step injection moulding process complex, fibre-reinforced media hoses can be made of liquid silicone rubber. Process parameters can be used to adjust specifically the part quality such as the residual wall thickness. more...

Plasma Coating

Production of rubber/thermoplastics composite parts using the plasma coating

Next to established adhesion promotion methods like primer systems or the chemical modification of the base materials, plasma-polymeric interlayers can be used to improve the adhesion of rubber thermoplastic composites. Our studies show that excitation type as well as deposition parameters have a significant influence on the composite adhesion. more...
