New Project „SUOMI“ has started

The project „SUOMI - Automated Manufacturing of sustainable Sports products by combining bio-based Composite Materials and Digital Quality Inspection has started at the Chair of Carbon Composites. The research project consisting of the partners Walter Seikowsky GmbH, The Bakery Snowboards, Addcomposites, University of Bayreuth – Department of Polymer Engineering aims at producing and processing bio-based prepregs in the AFP process. The goal is to minimize waste, scrap and material consumption while increasing the proportion of bio-based material and reducing the ecological footprint through laser-optical quality inspection in the manufacturing of sports products. 

The new project is funded by the Central Innovation Program for medium-sized enterprises (ZIM) of the Federal Ministry of Economical Affairs and Climate Action.
