Our expertise and laboratory are available for members and non-members. We offer consultancy and smaller-scale, application-oriented research projects. The content of such bilateral and multilateral projects can be fully tailored to fit your needs!

Your project, our expertise

The bilateral and multilateral project work at the TPRC contributes to a proper fundamental understanding of thermoplastic composites and drives innovation. The expertise and laboratory at the TPRC facilitates many different projects related to thermoplastic composites processing technologies, such as (out-of-autoclave) consolidation, fiber placement, forming, tailored blanks, overmolding, compression molding, recycling, welding and hybrid joints. Possible research and development topics include:

  • Material characterization under processing conditions
  • Mechanical testing of thermoplastic composites
  • Development of predictive models and simulation tools
  • Process simulation and optimization
  • Development of processing guidelines
  • Tool design and demonstrator development
  • See other research topics

We can be an extension of your R&D department.
