DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW HIGH PERFORMANCE MATERIAL ASSOCIATED TO A NEW TECHNOLOGICAL ENERGETIC, FLEXIBLE, ECONOMICAL, VERSATILE AND ECOLOGICAL PROCESS TO MAKE SUPER STRONG AND LIGHTWEIGHT COMPONENTS
The general objective of EFEVE project is the improvement of the new technologies to manufacturing of materials (aluminum and magnesium alloy) and processes and new technologies of production that are more energy efficient, improve manufacturing productivity, optimize raw material consumption, flexible mold changes and manufacturing capability of producing multiple components, …etc.
The development made in the EFEVE project aim at reducing the energy consumption of up to 20% compared with current systems. To reach these objectives, we will first investigate innovative new manufacturing alloy and new materials (SP3). The first one will be add nano-reinforcer to aluminum and magnesium alloy, the second technologies gives a mixing nano-reinforced and their characterization. This method also has a potential to improve the metallurgical quality and reduce the quantity of residues and low of cost of materials.
The research and the developments of the project will take into account the EU policies for Eco design, therefore the following parameters will be considered, in addition to those related with the working conditions (temperature, pressure, melted material flow, etc..)).
