The ZLP site at Augsburg

At its Augsburg site, the ZLP focuses on thermoset matrix composite materials made of dry fibre semi-finished products, infusion resin systems, as well as thermoplastic matrix composites. Other key areas are production-integrated quality assurance and the corresponding mechatronics and robotics. The Multifunctional Cell robotic research platform (Multifunktionale Zelle; MFZ), the only one of its kind in
Europe, enables research to be carried out on an industrial scale.

Resistance welding – The Institute at JEC World 2019 in Paris

Since the welding process has a high automation potential, it is well suited for efficient series production. In addition to resistance welding (picture), ultrasonic welding is currently being industrialized as a suitable joining technique at the Institute of Structures and Construction Technology.

The research activities in the Institute of Structures and Design are concerned with the development and implementation of composite materials with polymer and ceramic matrix in innovative, high performance structures. The developments are not only for aeronautics and aerospace applications, but also for general technical applications within alternative energy technologies, transportation and mechanical engineering. Design and construction principles are hereby developed and validated, which under the given boundary conditions of the application, offer economical solutions with high reliability.
