Injection moulding process optimization by online material monitoring

Injection moulding process optimization by online material monitoring | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it

Injection moulding is a complex process. The properties of the produced parts are directly dependent on the quality of supplied raw materials and process variables including temperature, pressure and speed, among others. OPTIJECT project is based on the feasibility of using spectroscopic probes in injection moulding machines for monitoring material parameters but also processing conditions. This real time control is expected to hold significant benefits for injection moulders in terms of improved quality, higher productivity and cost reductions.

Composites: Airbus continues to shape the future

Composites: Airbus continues to shape the future | Industrial subcontracting | Scoop.it
Composite materials have been called the shape of aerospace’s future. With their winning combination of high strength, low weight and durability, it’s easy to see why. For more than 30 years, Airbus has pioneered the use of such materials in its commercial jetliners, from the cornerstone A310’s vertical stabiliser to today’s A350 XWB – on which more than half of the aircraft’s structure is composite.
