Il progetto europeo RECOTRANS per i materiali compositi nel trasporto


In particular, two technologies will be developed: microwave-based pultrusion and RTM processes for long fibre thermoplastic composites, and laser bonding to allow addition of metal inserts in composite parts. Using these technologies three demonstrators will be manufactured: the cabin pillar for a Mercedes Benz truck, the roof cover of a train manufactured by Stadler, and the skin of a car door manufactured by Gestamp. During the first stage of the project, work will focus on the definition of the materials’ requirements and on the manufacturing system for the three demonstrators, as well as on the selection and adaptation of materials. The project, which lasts 42 months, involves 13 partners from seven countries and has received funding from the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
