Fraunhofer-Center HTL offers contract research in the application areas of aerospace, energy technology and thermoprocess technology as well as in the product area of technical ceramics. For our customers, we develop and optimise technologies, processes and products up to the production of prototypes and small series.

Duration 2023 - 2026
Paper Technology Ceramic Components for Sustainable Thermal Processes
The project will develop novel, paper-engineered ceramic radiation screens for industrial furnaces.
Digitisation of material development along the value chains
In DiMaWert, a methodology is to be established which will radically reduce the development times for new types of thermal processes. In addition to thermal processes, DiMaWert also aims at material and component development, which is also to be accelerated considerably with ICME and AI methods.
Duration 2020 - 2023 Development of SiC-fabrics for the winding process for the production of high temperature resistant tubes
In RoSiC, textile fabric structures for tubular SiC/SiC composites will be developed. On the other hand, multilayer fabrics are to be developed which can be easily processed and infiltrated in the winding process to tubular components.
Duration 2020 - 2023 Energy-efficient high-temperature processes for large and geometrically complex components
In HTPgeox, a methodology will be developed and tested using the example of sanitary ceramics, with which the production of components can be optimised in terms of energy efficiency and product quality through the interaction of digital processes.
Duration 2020 - 2022 Round needled C/SiC tubular structures for space travel
In RuRoRa, tubular structures with an increased fibre content in the Z-direction are to be produced by round needling of semi-finished textile products. Thereby improved properties in form of an increased interlaminar shear strength shall be achieved.
Duration 2020 - 2022 Spherical pressure vessels for hydrogen storage
In KuWaTa a spherical isotensoid high pressure tank for the storage of hydrogen at 350/700 bar is to be developed. The tank will be made of carbon fibre reinforced plastics ( CFC ) and by automated forming processes such as winding or tape deposition.
