The MAT4RAIL project developed new formulations of hybrid resins that will make it possible to replace metal railways parts with lighter composite materials. Smart interior parts were also designed to increase capacity and provide greater passenger comfort.
Finite element simulation is a computer-aided mathematical method that allows solving differential equations related to physical issues on complex geometries, allowing to design and improve in advance products and applications in a virtual way.
The growing market of recycled plastics is increasingly adopting the use of testing and product standards that are used and interpreted by all the agents of the value chain.
The FLEXOTRÓNICA Project, funded by the Valencian Institute of Business Competitiveness (IVACE), will develop flexible electronic components and conductive plastic materials for the mobility and transport industry.
AIMPLAS has acquired recently two testing machines of great importance to characterise automotive parts with a painted surface. One of them is a car wash lab apparatus, which simulates the washing of automotive parts and the other one is a gravelometer, which simulates the impact of gravel when driving a car.
With the participation of AIMPLAS, the WaysTUP! Project aims to produce food additives, insect protein, bioethanol, biosolvents, bioplastics and other bio-based resources.
