diginova

Diginova

The aim of the Diginova Project (Innovation for Digital Fabrication) was the analysis of existing digital production methods and creation of a roadmap. This roadmap further shows the path of digital fabrication.

 

 

prolibat

ProLiBat

The task in ProLiBat was the developement of a full production structure for Lithiumionbatteries.

 

 

regac

REGAC

In the REGAC project, the task was to develop and improve a high precision registration for R2R processed printed electronics. Next to the improvements of the camera system improvements in the true running accuracy of the rollers also lead to an improved accuracy for the overall deposition.

eelicon

EELICON - Enhanced Energy Efficiency and Comfort by Smart Light Transmittance Control

EELICON is concerned with an innovative switchable light transmittance technology developed previously in projects co-funded by the EU Framework Programmes. The core of this development are mechanically flexible and light-weight electrochromic (EC) film devices based on a conductive polymer nanocomposite technology with a unique property profile far beyond the current state-of-the art, opening the possibility to retrofit existing windows with a electrically dimmable plastic film.

According to life cycle assessment studies, considerable energy savings may result when such films are included in appliance doors, aircraft cabin windows, and automotive sunroofs, and the comfort is significantly enhanced. The development has been driven to the pilot-line production stage, however, the decisive step from research to innovation could not yet be accomplished for a number of technical and economic reasons. To overcome this gap, EELICON will tackle existing drawbacks by removing equipment limitations, automating processes, and establishing a high-throughput prototype production for a cost-effective high performance EC film technology in Europe.

Inline evaluation of transparent film coatings by fluorescence detection

The aim of the project is to develop a new, inline-capable detection method for quality assurance of functional coatings on films or shaped bodies. The basis for the detection is the fluorescence of organic dyes, which are added in small amounts in the coating solutions.
