MARTINA - MAteRials and Technologies for New Applications

Project description:

projekt martina logo

The primary objective of the MARTINA program is to strengthen the position and the role of Slovenian industry in the field of materials, particularly in the field of special steels, aluminium and multicomponent polymer materials, and as a result increase its competitiveness in the global market by switching from being standard suppliers to development suppliers in international value-chain networks.

The program MARTINA, in the context of smart specialization strategies S4, focuses on the priority "Development of materials and finished products". Its core addresses the areas of steel, aluminium and multicomponent materials, while at the same time it addresses and promotes the use of materials in industry, in particular the car industry, which in the Slovenian economy is regarded as a strategic industrial sector, in terms of volume, added value, and for long-term export potential. MARTINA includes five of the key industries: materials, tools, plastics, chemical and automotive. In the field of the "Development of materials and finished products", the main objective is strengthening the cooperation of the producers of materials, achieving high added value (those that already compete in international value chains), among themselves and with academic institutions.

Tecos' role:

Leading partner of the RDP4 project, which focuses on the research, development, test analysis, optimization and validation of different kinds of multi-component polymeric materials. The main activity of the RDP4 research group is to investigate the advanced techniques for preparing multifunctional homogeneous and heterogeneous polymeric assemblies (biomaterials, multilayer hybrid systems and plastomagnet materials), to characterise their structure/adhesion on various dimensional scales, to quantify structure-property-function relationships on the various structural levels and to develop, optimise and validate the procedures for engineering the properties of this class of materials during their preparation.

Sample Project

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

Quickly to precise 3D model of a mill for manufacturing of replacement parts

The client had to renew a wore down rotor with knife segments for which they didn't have any documentation. With precise 3D scanning of the original and creation of functional CAD model we provided them with data for production of replacement.

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

Thermoplastic oil filter housing warpage prediction due to injection moulding

The customer has presumed problems with excessive warpage in the stage of tool design. The material is PA66 with 30% of glass fibers. With the help of advanced injection moulding analysis we predicted the trend and values of warpage and thus successfully eliminated the problems.

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Analysis of Deep Drawing Process

Our client has planned a single phase deep drawing process for the presented case, however several doubts about manufacturability arose. The conducted analysis has cleared all doubts.

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

With Autodesk Advanced Material Exchange and Abaqus to precise results of structural FEM for fiber reinforced materials

We made a comparative study between experimentaly and numerically determined strength of a fibre reinforced product, which yielded extremely good match of the results from both methods.
