Activities foreseen DURING the life of IZADI-NANO2INDUSTRY
Research activities. The research activities will follow a concurrent and synergetic approach by working in parallel on the following fields:
The integration of technologies and processes to use nanomaterials in production. Safe by design approach including the following materials iteration:
High resistance castings, from master-pellets.
Wear resistance coatings from sprayed micropowders
Nanoreinforced injected thermoplastics from master-batches.
Enhanced aesthetic and anti-scracth properties plastic parts from nanotextured inserts.
Equipment, monitoring, controlling and protocols.
Demonstration activities. Once the above-mentioned research activities are integrated into the IZADI-NANO2INDUSTRY industrial sites, the performance of the fully integrated production pilots (ESTCRATCH, HARDcast and TRIBOnano) will be tested and validated at the end users sites (MAIER, BRI and FMG). Health, safety and environmental issues will be taken into account since the initial stages of the project.
Dissemination and exploitation activities. The project will start with an overall update of the market-need analysis of the use cases, the Exploitation Plans and Business Plants that had been conducted at the proposal preparation stage. In addition to this, dissemination and communication activities will be carried out during the course of the project to raise awareness about the project progress and about the achieved results, and to maximize the impact of IZADI-NANO2INDUSTRY across other sectors such as Eolic, Health and Aerospace in Europe.
Activities foreseen AFTER the completion of IZADI-NANO2INDUSTRY
Fully integrated production pilots. Once the project reaches TRL7, end users will commit capital investment to build a full production line to produce the components defined in the project. This line will represent a transformation step in bringing nanomaterials to industrial production for developing high performance edge components and increasing the competitiveness of the IZADI-NANO2INDUSTRY industrial partners worldwide.
Commercialization activities. The SMEs involved in this project (namely NILT, CEMECON, MARION, SISTEPLANT, SEMATEC and TOOL) will commercialize the materials technologies and the molds inserts developed between 8 and 18 months from the end of the project.
Dissemination activities. The IZADI-NANO2INDUSTRY demonstrators will be shown fully operational in the industry plants of MAIER in Spain, BRI and FMG in Italy.
Further research activities. The partners in IZADI-NANO2INDUSTRY will contribute to carry out innovation activities in partnerships leveraging funding from national sources, Europe and also from the industry partners. This close collaborative relationship between the IZADI-NANO2INDUSTRY partners will ensure effective technology transfer from early TRLs, through the life cycle of the project, up to implementation and commercialization of the technologies.
