Green light for new fibre network

The end of March saw the kick-off event for the new Hybrid Yarns Network (HyGa), initiated under the Central Innovation Programme SME (ZIM) established by Germany's Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). The aim of this programme is the joint development of technical solutions to exploit the user-oriented potential of hybrid yarns. As well as the initiation and implementation of mutua... more

"Blademaker" Project

The "Blademaker" project brings together a large consortium of companies and institutes under the leadership of Fraunhofer IWES, Bremerhaven, with the aim of developing new concepts to largely automate the manufacture of rotor blades for the wind energy sector. As well as small and medium-sized regional companies (such as fibretech Composites GmbH, Bremen), the project also involves a number of... more

Repeat of the Cotton Quality Seminar

Following the success of last year's course, ICA Bremen will be holding another Cotton Quality Seminar from 22 to 31 July 2014. As well as an introduction to manual classification, the course will also offer in-depth training on all aspects of instrumental cotton testing. The seminar is being organised and run by ICA Bremen in close cooperation with FIBRE. The programme will be complemented by ... more

32nd International Cotton Conference in Bremen with innovative programme focus

From 19 to 21 March, the international cotton world will be gathering once again in Bremen. The Bremen Cotton Exchange and FIBRE e.V. are jointly hosting what is now the 32nd International Cotton Conference in Bremen’s Town Hall. We spend a large amount of our lives in cotton. For thousands of years we have surrounded ourselves with this wonderful natural fibre, wearing it, and sleeping in it.... more

VIA-Hybrid / WindowBelt: Technology Development for the Production of CFRP Components

Motivation and Aims In the LuFo IV project “VIA-Hybrid”, new technologies are being developed for the production of a window frame assembly. The demonstrator component comprises a continuous fibre-reinforced structural insert that is combined with functionally integrated structures by means of an injection moulding process. By using the thermoplastic PEEK and the combination of thermoforming a... more

Cooperations and Networks

The success of the Institute would not be conceivable without its excellent cooperation partners, networks, project partners and supporters from the industry bodies and project committees. Joint projects, discussions, correspondences and suggestions are particularly necessary in the field of fibre composites because a wide range of specialist disciplines interlink. The contributions from differ... more

Cooperations

Bremen Cotton Exchange Bremen Fibre Institute maintains a cooperation agreement with the Bremen Cotton Exchange. The Institute was established in 1969, having begun as a laboratory set up by the Bremen Cotton Exchange in 1955. As a member of FIBRE's Board of Trustees, the Bremen Cotton Exchange has an active influence on the development of the Institute. The key tasks for FIBRE under the cooper... more

Organisation

The organisational structure of the Institute is implemented in a matrix form. FIBRE comprises four competence fields: composites structures and processes (FVSV)testing methods (PM)fibre development (FE) material development and characterisation (MEC) Composite structures and processes comprises three teams. An important factor in the success of the Institute is that the expertise-driven ... more
