Christian Doppler Laboratory

The Christian Doppler Laboratory (CDL) for High Efficient Composite Processing was established in April 2013. The industrial partner of the CDL is FACC operations GmbH.

Funded by the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy and mentored by the Christian Doppler Research Association (CDG), the laboratory will last up to 7 years.

The aim of the project is to develop fundamental understanding of various process branches which make the manufacturing of typical aeronautic and high load-bearing structural components possible. A special focus is put on cost-efficient manufacturing. State of the art process chains are analysed and optimized and furthermore, new developments are planned. In order to select process steps clearly beyond the State-of-the-art, improved functionality is essential.
