Project Overview

(PresseBox) (Pfinztal, ) NanoOnSpect aims to meet a fundamental technological challenge in the compounding of polymer nanocomposites to obtain better control on the dispersion of nanoparticles in the polymer matrix. In order to achieve this goal, NanoOnSpect partners are working together to develop a unique piece of high-tech machinery which will provide access to an advanced process control system for nanocompounding.

After one year of collaboration, the consortium of NanoOnSPect has made considerable progress to deliver the technology in due time. Significant achievements have been made in two areas of the project.

"One of the most significant achievements in the first year of NanoOnSpect is a pilot sensor which can measure the thermal conductivity of polymer melts online during processing. This sensor will be included in the onBOX, which was also constructed during the first project year and is now ready for the integration of NanoOnSpect sensors for robust quality control" says Irma Mikonsaari, the coordinator of the NanoOnSpect project.

The consortium consisting of several high-tech SME's has been joining efforts to make new sensors and a new tool which will depend on intelligent adaptive control. Adaptive control is defined as process control which intelligently uses the output after analysing and assessing data over a certain period.
