At the final meeting of the project "SKR-FVK" at our project partner DEKUMED in Bernau at the beautiful Chiemsee, the project partners once again proudly looked at the jointly achieved project results. In just two years, a new process variant for increasing cost efficiency and…

The project "CO2-neutral, lifetime-optimized, short fiber reinforced thermoplastics for dynamic applications - COOPERATE" has started at the Chair of Carbon Composites. The proposal of the project addresses the reduction of emissions by fundamentally improving product design and…

On 3.12.2021, three LCC employees visited Roth Composite Machinery in Steffenberg for the preliminary acceptance of the new towpreg machine. The machine can impregnate four tows in parallel at process speeds of up to 110 m/min. In addition to the four cross winders, the line has…

After about five years, David Colin is leaving the LCC. Started on various industrial projects, he has contributed significantly to the design of the chair in the last years as group leader, especially with a focus on virtual material characterization and pressure tanks. We thank…

Studies on the multi-functionality of additively manufactured parts, such as 3D printed electronics, have increased significantly in recent years. A study has been carried out at the Chair of Carbon Composites (LCC) researching on the integration of continuous carbon fiber and…

Within the framework of a student project of the University of Art and Design Linz, tests for overbraiding of mannequin extremeties have been carried out at the Chair of Carbon Composites. The background of the work was to find new manufacturing techniques for everyday clothes…

The FASSAD project (ZIM FKZ: ZF4004317LL9) consortium consisting of the companies apppex, Haas Metallguss and the Chair of Carbon Composites of the TUM successfully applied fiber-reinforced salt cores in aluminum high-pressure die casting (HPDC). HPDC is well suited for the…

The project "Material efficient and cycle time optimized industrialization of 700 bar H2 pressure vessels - MaTaInH2" started at the Chair of Carbon Composites. The aim of the project is the development of a material-efficient and cycle-time optimized production of pressure…

Additive manufacturing provides increased flexibility for manufacturing parts with complex geometries. However, manufacturing these geometries with conventional planar 3D printing (also known as 2.5D printing) can cause problems, such as reduction in strength and stiffness in…

The project SensoTwin – Sensor-integrated Digital Twin for High-Performance FRP Applications marks the beginning of an academic cooperation between the Chair of Carbon Composites of Technical University of Munich and Deggendorf Institute of Technology focusing on a whole-lifetime…
