Functionalisation of porous aluminium

in cooperation with

Together with our partners from Automoteam GmbH we have demonstrated the feasibility of functionalising FILLSERTS made out of aluminium.

FILLSERTS are multi-structural, multi-functional and (selectively) open-pore aluminium castings. They differ substantially from conventionally foamed, sintered or 3D-printed metals.

Thanks to the injection moulding combination, the aluminium is infiltrated with the polymer, resulting in a perfect mechanical bonding. In this way, high joint strengths are achieved without the need for pre-treatment of the surfaces.

More Case Studies

INSERT Functionalisation

Gemeinsam mit der Innovationsgruppe von REHAU Industries haben wir eine materialgerechte Einbringung von Inserts unter Verwendung des mobilen Spritzgießens entwickelt.

ROBIN in the extrusion line

In close cooperation with the innovation group of REHAU Industries, the ROBIN technology was integrated directly into an extrusion line. Functionalisations were applied to a profile at regular intervals.

Functionalisation of composite profiles

Together with our partners INOMETA GmbH and Mitsui Chemicals Europe GmbH as well as the Institute for Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology at the TU Dresden, we have completely redesigned the functionalisation of high-performance profiles.
