Open for new ideas, enjoying in technical progress, always looking for more efficiency - these are KODA's qualities. Our customers benefit from our willingness to innovate. We think along. And we also think ahead for the future. We are happy to rely on the support from the Institut für Umformtechnik und Leichtbau of the Technical University of Dortmund. Due to this good cooperation we already have completed several successful research projects.
Development of hybrid plastic/magnesium composite material for ultra lightweight design - KuMag
Project sponsor: State of NRW/EFRE
Support number: EFRE-0800131
Project number: NW-1-1-018d
It is the aim of this research project to develop a hybrid material from magnesium and plastic, which will be created by deep-drawing of a magnesium wrought alloy and back injection moulding with plastic. By combining magnesium and plastic into a new hybrid material the different material properties cause advantageously joined. Base of the hybrid technology is a combined deep-drawing and back injection moulding tool. Apart from a suitable joining technology for plastic-magnesium composite tool concepts will be developed for the supply of magnesium semi-finished products as well as for integrated primary forming and forming of the new hybrid material. This is done especially by surface modification of the magnesium component. The part of "Koda Stanz- und Biege Technik GmbH" in the cooperation project is the merging of joining technology, primary forming and forming as well as producing demonstrations parts.
