CTAG participates in the XII National Congress of Composite Materials (MATCOMP 2017) with the project AEROCAR

San Sebastián
21, 22 and 23 June 2017

MATCOMP_2017

This biennial congress provides a unique forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest results of research and innovation projects related to the field of composites and high performance materials. This year, the Congress aims to reinforce the presence of advanced materials in relevant sectors in Spain, such as aeronautics, the automotive industry, railways, capital goods and machining/tooling, etc.

CTAG will take advantage of the forum of specialists that meets in this congress to present the conclusions of FORTAPE project (H2020-FOF, nº 636860) and to show how the experience gained in this project was key to make a centre specialized in the automotive business, like CTAG, find synergies and transfer possibilities in another technological sector, like aeronautics, opening a new line of work in order to capitalize and add value to the wide experience acquired over years of research and specialized customer service. Thus, through the new AEROCAR project (Interreg SUDOE, SOE1 / P1 / E0020), it is possible to boost an upward sector that is already prioritized in the European Commission’s strategic innovation agendas, Member States and even for many regional governments, which will generate an important socio-economic impetus for the regions included in the European Southwest Space.

The MATCOMP 2017 congress will take place at the Kursaal Congress Hall in San Sebastian from June 21 to 23. Check here the full programme: http://matcomp2017.com/images/PROGRAMA-MATCOMP2017.pdf

CTAG participates in the IZB 2016 in Wolfsburg

From 18th to 20th October 2016, CTAG will exhibit for the first time at the International Suppliers Fair, IZB, in Wolfsburg, Germany. CTAG will participate as a representative of the capabilities of the automobile industry in Galilcia, in Hall 1-2, Booth 2206.

The IZB is considered to be Europe’s leading trade fair for the automotive supplier industry. During this event over 800 automotive suppliers from more than 30 different countries will showcase their innovative products and technologies.

One of the main focuses of this year’s fair is the topic of “Mobility Goes Digital”. On 17th October, the day before the start of the trade fair, high-ranking speakers will already come together at the International Automotive Congress, where they will discuss the connection between IT and mobility.

This year selected exhibitors will present solutions in the fields of driver assistance systems, vehicle networking and smartphone and tablet PC integration.

With its strong focus on suppliers to the automotive industry, the International Suppliers Fair (IZB) has developed into an important business and networking platform for top managers from OEMs and automotive supplier companies since 2001. In 2014 alone, the trade fair, which is held in the city of Wolfsburg once every two years, recorded a total of around 51,000 visitors. More than 90 percent of more than 800 exhibitors were satisfied or very satisfied with their time at the event in 2014 and particularly appreciated the opportunity to make new contacts.

On this occasion CTAG will present its expertise in development and testing.

CTAG participates in the LICORNE project

CTAG participates in LICORNE (LIssage de COrdons Robotisé Novateur Expert), a H2020 European project that started in November 2015. With a budget of 2.8 M€, LICORNE is a two-year FTI, Fast Track to Innovation action.

The project aims to provide an automated commercial system to apply sealing mastic on the vehicle body automatically, using only the necessary material, removing excess material to use it in the following application.

LICORNE searches to develop an innovative self-adjusting process for the quality control of the PVC seal on the body, increasingly used in automobile manufacturing.

LICORNE aims to certify autonomously that each junction has a high quality assurance, through real-time analysis of small deviations, providing recommendations for better management of the system and allowing to anticipate defects.

CTAG collaborates in the optimisation of the automated process through the capture and analysis of the installation parameters. The objective is to ensure the quality of the application of the sealing material and the optimisation of material consumption. BIG DATA techniques shall be used, first, to determine the application parameters that are appropriate for each vehicle and, in a second phase, to advise modification of the application parameters in order to achieve the optimum process.

The rest of the consortium is made up of PSA Groupe (France) as coordinator and future user of the system, Clemessy (France), which will address path correction technology, RINGLER GMBH, which will develop the mastic bead application system so that a uniform application optimising the amount of material used is achieved, and the Institut de Science de Matériaux de Mulhouse – IS2M (France), dedicated to the use of plasma for modification of materials.
