What is the NANO SIM 3D Project?
NANO-SIM 3D project is divided into two areas with different lines of research and aims the development of new nanocomposite materials based in metallic and thermoplastic matrixes.
Basically, NANO-SIM 3D, is the Development of new metallic and thermoplastic matrix composites)
One of the areas of research is based on the development of new formulations, incorporating metallic matrix nanocomposites, for the production of innovative new molding components using additive manufacturing techniques.
The other area of research intends the development of thermoplastic components using polymer matrix nanocomposites. This for the production of innovative new molding components using additive manufacturing techniques. The solutions to be implemented in the scope of this project will be in the frontline of future applications in a wide range of industries (e.g., mobility, packaging, houseware, etc.).
With an overall investment of 3.793.894,69€, this project is co-financed under Portugal 2020 Program in 3.037.303,13€ from European Regional Development Fund.
NANO-SIM 3D project is a three years project, from December 2018 to November 2021.
Simoldes Aços as promoter, Simoldes Plásticos and CICECO from Aveiro University as co-promoters.
