FRAUNHOFER PROJECT CENTER @ WESTERN

The Fraunhofer Project Center @ Western (FPC) is a joint venture between Western University, London (ON), Canada, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology, Pfinztal, Germany, located at the Advanced Manufacturing Park in London, Ontario. Being a not-for-profit research institute, the main focus of the FPC@Western is applied research in full industrial scale in the field of fiber reinforced composites. In order to meet full industrial scale production requirements, the center is equipped with a 2500 ton press for compression moulding, a Direct SMC line for thermoset processing, and a LFT-D line for thermoplastic processing. Additionally the center will soon be equipped with a HP-RTM process and Preform Center Technology. These processes have technical chances and challenges which can be explored and fulfilled for the medium and high volume production.
