The Institute of Plastics Processing at RWTH Aachen University (IKV) was founded in 1950 and is one of the biggest institutes engaged in this field of research. The Institute has more than 300 employees working on the problems encountered during the processing of the many different types of plastics that are now available. IKV is divided up into the four specialist departments: Injection Moulding-PU Technology, Extrusion-Further Processing, Part Design-Materials Technology and Composites. In the field of composites, processing techniques like compression moulding, RTM, resin infusion, gap impregnation, pultrusion, filament winding and some specialities of them are investigated. Furthermore, modelling and dimensioning of composites play an important role in IKV.
