As part of the ongoing development of our software and services portfolio, we are conducting self-financed and publicly funded R&D projects. In this way, we ensure that new findings are incorporated into our range of services and promptly generate added value for our customers. Our R&D activities are recognized and awarded by the Stifterverband under the patronage of the Federal President.

LightMat Battery Housing
The target of the joint project "LightMat Battery Housing" is the development of functionalised, unidirectional fibre-reinforced semi-finished products for the large-scale production of high performance plastic battery housings for electric vehicles. The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund ERDF 2014-2020.
Fast Simulation of SFR Plastics
Development of a software for the orientation-dependent calibration of an anisotropic elastoplastic standard material model for the FEM simulation of short fiber-reinforced injection molded plastic components. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.
Strength Assessment of SFR Plastics
Development of a method for the strength assessment of short-fiber-reinforced plastic components. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.
Simbabear (SIMulation-BAsed BEARing)
Development of a software for FEM simulation of highly pre-loaded rubber chassis bearings. The project is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
