ATLAS – Alloy Testing Laboratory at Advanced Specifications

The competence cluster „ATLAS“ has been started at 2021-08-01. ATLAS is a support program of the „Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand“ (ZIM) of federal ministry for economic affairs and energy (BMWi).

This venture shall merge the know-how and development of innovative methods to generate new approaches on topics of material development, material characterization, and optimization of material properties.

Therefore, the companies DeltaSigma Analytics GmbH, Nordmetall GmbH, and Sampro GmbH have established the cluster.

The development of high performance metallic materials needs expensive test melts and extensive material characterization and sophisticated material descriptions to prepare FEA-material cards – especially for high temperature deformation at shear respectively torsion loading at high impact rates.

Smart Sensors (2015 - 2018)

As a part of the joint project with partners from research and industry, Nordmetall GmbH worked on a subtask for the integration of smart sensors in crash loaded fiber composite structures in the field of electromobility. The project was funded by the European Fund for Regional Development (EFRE) and the Sächsische AufbauBank (SAB) in the period from 2015/07/01 to 2018/06/30.
