IQ-2 Product-process optimization

Referent : Philippe Saffré

Many industrial products and manufacturing processes are complicated to design, adjust, control and optimize. However, the functionality of the products and their qualities depend on these actions. It is therefore an important challenge for design and production to be able to develop and optimize production processes. Historically, our work has focused on stamping and manufacturing processes in fibre-matrix composites. In recent years we have been working on other deformation processes (roller burnishing, incremental forming, bending) but also on machining and we are now tackling plastic injection and additive manufacturing.

Some results

  • Optimised design tools for thermo-compression or RTM moulds
  • Efficient self-contained heat transfer mould:
  • Matrix control (Copilot-pro®, total inertial) :
