New EU project "MouldTex"
Great success for our research group "Contact Mechanics and Friction": Under the scheme "Factories of the Future" we receive funding within a 9 partner consortium for 42 months. Research topic of MouldTex is the application of hierarchical laser surface texturing on multiple scales onto the surface of elastomer components to simultaneously decrease friction and facilitate demoulding. Finally our findings and new technologies will be demonstated on three different manufacturing lines. MouldTex started on Nov 1st, 2017
