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.
