Endowed Chair "Textile Plastic Composites"
Programm InnoProfile-Transfer follow-up project PaFaTherm II
|Areas of Activity||Provision of Service|
The Endowed Chair Textile Plastic Composites combines the disciplines of Textile Technology, Textile Machine Construction, Mechanical Engineering, Plastics Technology and Mechanics in an interdisciplinary team. The focus of research lies on the parallel alignment and linking of the value chains of textile and plastics processing for the production of large series compatible, textile-reinforced plastic composites. The knowledge and technology transfer from research into strategic collaborations with industry and business creates the common foundations for technology and product innovations. The focus is on the practical implementation of the requirements for sustainability, resource conservation and energy efficiency in textile-based lightweight technologies and products. Scientific and technical sound and apply confirmed R&D results are used in a total of six, each one complete semester comprehensive courses of the Endowed Chair TPC for Bachelor and Master degree programs at the TU Chemnitz.
