Bedrijfsprofiel TPRC

Het ThermoPlastic composites Research Center (TPRC) zit in Enschede en is in 2009 ontstaan op initiatief van Boeing, Fokker Technologies, TenCate en Universiteit Twente. TPRC is een onderzoekscentrum dat zich richt op thermoplastische composieten voor de vliegtuig-,automobiel- en energie-industrie. TPRC voert, gezamenlijk met haar partners, onderzoeksprojecten uit op nieuwe thermoplastische composiet procestechnologieën en –toepassingen. Thermoplastische composieten zijn lichtgewicht materialen die, in tegenstelling tot de traditionele thermoharder composieten, uitermate geschikt zijn voor geautomatiseerde productie in grote series. De laatste jaren vindt er een duidelijke en snelle groei plaats in de toepassing van deze materialen. De regio Twente speelt in deze ontwikkeling een belangrijke rol door haar sterke kennisbasis.
