THE FUTURE OF THE GLOBAL COMPOSITE MARKET PRESENTS ATTRACTIVE OPPORTUNITIES IN VARIOUS SECTORS SUCH AS TRANSPORT, CONSTRUCTION, ENERGY OR CONSUMER GOODS. THE GLOBAL COMPOSITE MARKET IS EXPECTED TO REACH AN ESTIMATED VALUE OF $114.7 BILLION BY 2024. THE CHALLENGE IN THE NEW MANUFACTURING PROCESS DEVELOPMENTS FOR COMPOSITE PARTS IS TO ACHIEVE A BALANCE OF PROCESS COSTS, LEVEL OF INVESTMENT REQUIRED AND PRODUCTIVITY, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO LARGE PARTS.
The EPROMAT Project will develop a new manufacturing cell based on advanced and intelligent organizational models for the automation of large composite manufacturing processes.
The project is developed with the support of the HAZITEK 2020 programme and has a consortium of 9 industrial partners, 1 cluster (MAFEX) and 2 RVCTI agents, led by POLIKEA, a company manufacturer of complete components and modules for the railway and shipping industry.
