Injection moulding production technology for multi-functional nano-structured plastic components enabled by Nano Imprint Lithography

The project is funded by EU's 7 Frame Work Programme. 
Project period: 1.1.2012 - 31.12.2015


Plast4Future Project

The Plast4Future (P4F) project has successfully developed a new technology for upgrading and advancing existing injection moulding production technology for the manufacture of plastic components by integration of state-of-the-art nanotechnology.


The new technology works by enhancing the lateral resolution on free-form surfaces down to micro- and nanometer length scales. This is achieved through the development of a complete nanoimprint lithography solution for structuring the free-form surface of injection moulding tools and tool inserts. In this manner, plastic objects are manufactured directly in the injection moulding process with micro- and nano-patterns in the surface.
