Yesterday, we received Dr Thomas Professor at Department of Industrial Materials Science Chalmers University, Sweden at CDRSP Seminar 2020. The seminar had the theme “Polymer Nanocomposites: From Laboratory Concept to Large Scale Production”
Seminar | Polymer Nanocomposites: From Laboratory Concept to Large Scale Production | 03-03-2020 | 12:00h
Polymer nanocomposites combine the properties of the matrix with those of the filler additive. This opens a wide range of possibilities and allows for the creation of fundamentally new materials that exhibit improved mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. This combination of filler and polymer allows for immense versatility and design capabilities and as consequence research in nanocomposites has been ever-growing. Traditionally carbon black has been the filler of choice [+]
Abstract: We present a discussion of innovation and I4.0, a review of theories of innovation and technological revolution and illustrative examples of the transformation impacting at the economy and society in general by I4.0 and particularly on SMEs. At the same time we illustrate these impacts on SMEs Case Studies. Through a collection of 8 prospective case studies of SMEs that in several countries try to meet the challenges posed [+]
