Adhesion promotion and new material combinations: overmolding of plasma functionalized surfaces
"Binding what does not bind" is the motto of plasma surface functionalization. Innovation often requires that two materials that naturally do not bond must be joined. Plasma surface functionalizations are an elegant solution to overcome this challenge.
Sustainability strategy for plastics companies
Through the Swiss Triple Impact programme, Swiss Plastics Cluster proposes a sustainability approach adapted to the challenges of the plastics industry.
New technique for welding thermoplastic materials by friction stirring
Discover the friction stir welding technique, its specificities and advantages. You will see how this technology is applied to non-fibrous or fibrous thermoplastic polymers and guarantees high mechanical properties of the welded joint.
Recycling of biosourced composites
Discover the research projects related to the recycling of flax-PP composites that allow Bcomp to orient its solutions towards a zero waste production.
Protect your materials from bacteria and viruses
Do you want to protect your materials from bacteria and viruses? In this speech you reserve impulses how this is possible without problems by adding additives.
Processing of biobased polymers
Bioplastics from agricultural residues offer clear advantages in terms of environmental protection. Like all products made out of natural elements, they are very variable. So how can they be processed? Find out more in the speech.
Industrial symbiosis from recycled coffee grounds
You will receive impulses about how Coffeefrom startup, together with its supply chain partners like Nexeo Plastics, has managed to create a new industrial symbiosis to transform coffee wastes into new valuable resources.
Consolidation of additive manufactured composites
The focus of this speech is the experimental and numerical analysis of the consolidation process for additive manufactured continuous fiber reinforced composites. You will receive insights of composite fusion performed to improve the final composite quality by reducing porosity and warpage.
Extreme engraving for molded products
Counterfeiting decreases sales and erodes brands. With Morphotonix technology, brands can now secure and authenticate their products quickly and without any consumables, with diffractive, personalized and eye-catching elements.
Milling tools with SLX3 coating
In its tool for zirconium dioxide, the toolmaker was able to increase the service life by up to 30 percent while maintaining the same quality. Hufschmied specializes in material- and process-specific tools and is known in various industries for optimization potential.
