3D imaging of innovative plastics
Fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) are a new class of cheaper and cleaner materials that contain fibres of glass or carbon. Fibre orientation and distribution are of critical importance for the mechanical and physical properties of the final product. To assist this, scientists of the EU-funded FIONA project have developed a 3D tool, the FibreScanner3D, for the structural imaging of fibre-reinforced components. In collaboration with a worldwide leading manufacturer, the project's activities will focus on the scanner's performance validation and commercialisation. This will pave the way for the introduction and implementation of the FibreScanner3D in the FRP industry.
