PEGASUS: Integrating engineering processing and materials technologies for the European automotive sector.

Obiettivo

The main goal of PEGASUS is to develop a new and highly innovative methodology for SMEs working in the automotive industry, specifically aimed at integrating engineering and new processing concepts. It will combine state-of-the-art thermoplastics (TPs); TP composites in the polymer processing industry in a single modular system.

PEGASUS will:
-Develop a new Integrated Design and Engineering Environment (IDEE) based on KBE (Knowledge Based Engineering) for SMEs supplying the automotive sector. Based on existing developments in the Aerospace industry it will support the 5-day car concept and facilitate the integration of functions, processes and materials in a single industrial process.
-Integrate knowledge from within the new supply chain concept allowing SMEs to co-operate and provide a quick, high-tech and customisable service directly to OEMs at a lower cost.
-Provide an innovative; flexible process configuration unit on demand that combines the latest moulding technologies adapted through the IDEE to each component requirements.
-Make use of nano-particles in colouring technology to avoid additional painting reducing VOCs.

Develop disassembly on command components by expandable (nano) adhesive particles reducing disassembly times by 25%; local reinforcements using long fibre thermoplastcs; improved Pedestrian Protection reducing severe injuries by up to 10%. An IP-SME draws all of the partners from 8 EU states together in an ideal funding instrument, which would otherwise be difficult or impossible. These partners will ensure that the exploitation will be maximised across the EU.

The project will demonstrate, by producing a new rear part of a Smart car, the possibilities open to a new SME intensive supply chain concept in the car manufacturing industry. It will result in an estimated 30% increase in the size of the market open to SMEs. Growth in the sector as a result of PEGASUS could be approximately 40.000 new jobs for SMEs
