In cooperation with the Institute of Textile Technology (ITA) of the RWTH Aachen University, Up2-Tec has initiated the research project "Composite Thermo-Flex-Forming" CTFF. The implementation of this research project is to be carried out as part of the funding program "Central Innovation Program for SMEs - ZIM" of the BMWi.
Development of a mold based on a flexible pressure membrane with a dynamically adjustable heat output distribution through the integration of a modular textile resistance heating system.
The aim of the research project is the development of a heatable elastic pressure membrane as a flexible method of economical process engineering for the production of structurally applicable fiber composite components of high surface quality.
Further information on this research project will be published shortly.
