HIPPOCAMP

High-power Impulse Plasma Process Operations for the Creation of Advanced Metallic Parts

HIPPOCAMP

The use of advanced materials in strategic sectors for competitiveness of the European industry such as the aerospace, automotive and machine tool sectors is restricted because of the absence of economically efficient manufacturing processes of scalable nano-components with a low environmental footprint. In this context, the European Union has launched the Hippocamp project, which aims to develop a novel manufacturing process of nano-composites that dampen vibrations, act as reinforcement for structural parts used in those sectors and improve the functional properties

THE CHALLENGE

The Elgoibar Centre provides data on the control of vibrations, tackles problems caused by chatter and works on the calculation of natural frequencies, on stable machining processes, sensory data processing and the analysis of dynamic behaviour of components after adding nano-composite material.
In addition, the centre also coordinates the work package related to exploitation and dissemination of the results.

THE RESULT

The initiative is especially designed to reduce chatter in the automotive and machine tool sector. All the same, it also has applications in the aerospace sector, where it can be useful to decrease the failures of turbine vanes of aircrafts caused by dynamic stresses.
The project seeks to promote the use of these materials without a significant cost increase and to reduce the use of raw materials and energy consumption by at least 20% during the processing, manufacturing and decommissioning phases.
Hence, IK4-IDEKO will develop a dynamic analysis of a cutting tool developed by the Swedish company Mircona, a doctor blade of the Gipuzkoa company Lantier, a quill of a milling machine of the Basque machine tool manufacturer Soraluce and a turbine vane made by the Italian Diad Group.

PARTNERS

The project has the participation of 10 entities
