Comparison of the properties of Onserts and Inserts for a high volume production of structural composite parts
Fibre reinfoced plastics (FRP) are increasingly used for the substitution of classical construction materials due to their high lightweighting potential. In addition to a high stiffness and strength, FRP enable the integration of functional elements without a post processing of the manufactured parts. Within the investigations of the Research Group 860, which is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), two process chains for a high volume production of FRP structural parts with integrated functional elements are developed. Thereby, inserts can be integrated into the parts without any post processing steps.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
