On September 3, 2018, the ReLei demonstrator (hat shelf) was presented to the public in Dresden as part of this year’s FOREL Colloquium, integrated into a production body (Audi A6). The research project “Production and Recycling Strategies for Electric Mobility for the Material Recycling of Lightweight Structures in Fibre Plastic Composite Hybrid Construction – ReLei” (funding code 02PJ2800-02PJ2808), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, was successfully completed after three and a half years. Already in March this year the complex hat shelf was presented as the first ReLei technology demonstrator manufactured with the new injection moulding technology (foam moulds) at the JEC in Paris. inpro was responsible for the numerical and experimental process and structure analysis within the research association. In this context, inpro virtually reproduced the complete process chain of foam forming. The research team is particularly proud that the ReLei joint project was awarded the BMBF’s lighthouse project award in June 2015, a seal of quality for particularly innovative research projects.
