Fraunhofer researchers have partnered with industry experts to develop highly durable thermoplastic foams and composites that make the blades lighter and recyclable Offshore wind turbines are becoming ever larger, and the transportation, installation, disassembly and disposal of their gigantic rotor ...

Efforts to produce lighter vehicles necessarily include engine parts, such as the cylinder casing, which could shed up to 20% of its weight if it were made of fibre-reinforced plastic rather than aluminium – without added costs. Such injection-moulded parts ...

The FORTAPE project, being let by CTAG is to last 3 years and has a budget of around €5 million. It will look into the manufacture of complex parts based on unidirectional tapes for the automotive and aerospace industries. Along ...

With new emission standards in Europe and North America, automotive manufactures are looking for new and innovative ways to make vehicles both lighter and stronger. Advanced composite materials like carbon fibre are being used increasingly to replace standard materials like ...

A new collaborative agreement between Momentive Specialty Chemicals and the Fraunhofer Project Centre for Composites Research

Antennas that are capable of transmitting radio waves turn components into intelligent objects. Researchers at Fraunhofer have now found a way to embed these antennas in fibre composites
