Plastics technology center AIMPLAS says that it is coordinating Recotrans, a European project aimed at developing efficient and sustainable manufacturing methods for large composite parts in vehicles, trains and trucks.
The composites materials are hybrids combining thermoplastic polymeric composite and metal to achieve lighter and high-quality parts that, up to now, were limited to short series because of time- consuming and costly production process. Aimplas says.
‘Composite materials provide countless advantages derived from its high performances and its low weight to sectors such as transport,’ the organization added in a press release. ‘The problem is that its mass production is not a reality yet due to the complex manufacturing methods required.’
