The use of lightweight components stands or falls on the choice of materials. Product value, product costs, production costs, development costs and risks are, however, difficult to estimate when dealing with lesser known materials such as composites. The seventh white paper focusses on tooling for composites.

The use of lightweight components stands or falls by the economic use of material with a high performance. The product value, product costs, production costs, development costs and risks are, however, difficult to estimate when less well-known materials, such as composites, are applied. Having a clear picture of production costs is important. Our sixth white paper focuses on the early design phase, as the greater part of the product cost is committed during this stage.

The next edition of the Materials trade fair, which takes place on 31 May and 1 June in Veldhoven, has a practice-oriented set-up themed around four pillars: materials, surface techniques, joining techniques and analysis techniques. Keynote speeches and live demos will be presented in the different Experience Areas to inspire visitors. Markus Kaufmann from the SLC-Lab will also hold a speech.

The use of lightweight components stands or falls by the choice of materials. The product value, product costs, production costs, development costs and risks are, however, difficult to estimate when talking about less well-known materials such as composites. Our fifth white paper shows how a lay-up of fibre reinforced layers can be defined from given load cases by calculating stiffness matrices.

In terms of properties materials are quite often ranked on the basis of their anisotropic behaviour. What does this mean for the materials and how can knowledge of this behaviour be used to design better products? In our fourth white paper we mainly discuss mechanical anisotropy in composite materials. Download it now!

Unknown makes unloved, a description all too often still applicable to composite materials when it comes down to material selection. This is why with their third white paper the SLC-Lab and its partners want to pass on some essential tools and methodologies to help designers and OEMs make the right choices. This paper will help you make a well-informed choice that could make a positive effect on your activities. You can download the third white paper now!

The use of lightweight components stands or falls by the choice of materials. Product value, product costs, production costs, development costs and risks are however difficult to estimate when talking about less well-known materials such as composites. Moreover, the wide range of materials and processes makes selection even more difficult.

Unknown makes unloved, a description all too often still applicable to composite materials, and certainly where sustainability is concerned. This is why the Sirris composite experts (SLC-Lab) and the sustainability experts have come up with white papers that go much deeper into the properties and possibilities offered by composites. These papers will help you make a well-informed choice that could make a positive effect on your activities. You can download the first white paper now, completely free-of-charge!

Composites are versatile materials. Because everyone sometimes needs inspiration from another perspective, Sirris is organising a crash course and a series of masterclasses on this subject. We provide a broad base of information on various issues relating to composites, always with the necessary depth. (in Dutch)

Eloy Water commissioned Sirris to develop a set of new wastewater treatment tanks made of thermosetting composite, to supplement its range of traditional concrete tanks. The Belgian water treatment specialist's aim was to be able to offer reliable and affordable treatment units that are easier to produce, store, handle and install.
