Trees for FC Augsburg forest

During the European Football Championship 2024, part of the Abele Ingenieure team organised an exciting betting game. In addition to the sporting competition and the fun of it all, there is some particularly good news to announce: For each of the 22 participants in our European Championship prediction game, we bought a tree from FC Augsburg for the so-called FCA forest. This means that twenty-two trees sponsored by us will be planted in the FCA's next tree-planting campaign.

The FCA forest is a joint project of the FCA family and the Augsburg forestry administration, which was launched in 2022. Not far from Augsburgs’ Football Arena, between the rivers Wertach and Singold, a climate-resilient mixed forest is being created – the FCA forest. The project is part of the reforestation initiative as part of the city's climate protection measures.

We see this initiative as a wonderful opportunity to promote sustainability and climate protection in our home region. We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank the participants in our betting game who made this campaign possible in the first place.

BioStruct – Manufacturing processes for bio-based fibre-reinforced composite parts for structural applications

Projects

EU-project BioStruct

The BioStruct project which the Abele Ingenieure are part of, aims to achieve several outcomes, such as increased productivity, ensuring consistently high quality in high-precision manufacturing, promoting strategic independence for the EU manufacturing industry, and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. By concentrating on boat building and wind energy, the project directly targets 25 % of the market, and potential applications in sports equipment and automotive are anticipated to boost the share to 45%. With the projected growth of the bio-composites market, the consortium envisions a market potential of around € 100 million by 2030, leading to a significant reduction in greenhouse gases, estimated at 2.5 to 4.3 million tons of CO2 per year.

The BioStruct project brings together 10 European partners. To tackle the existing challenges linked to the utilization of biocomposites in structural components and expand the range of applications for bio-composites, the project has established precise objectives:

  • Developing an accurate draping process to control fiber orientation
  • Creating material models to capture natural variability
  • Integrating nano-structured bio-based sensors for load monitoring

BioStruct has a global budget of over 8 million euros. The consortium’s partners are based in seven countries (Austria, Cyprus, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain).

BioStruct – Manufacturing processes for bio-based fibre-reinforced composite parts for structural applications

Projects

Kick-Off for BioStruct

The BioStruct project, coordinated by Profactor, was launched on Tuesday, February 13th. Its main goal is to develop manufacturing processes to boost the use of bio-based fiber-reinforced composites for structural applications. Co-funded by Horizon Europe, the European Union’s research and innovation program, this public-private European partnership involves 10 organizations and will continue for three years.

The following organizations, both public and private, are pooling their scientific and industrial knowledge:
Profactor, Abele Ingenieure, Amura, Bladeworks, CIDETEC, Enginsoft, IDEKO, Lumoscribe, NOMA, Techtera

DrapeBot – A European Project developing collaborative draping of carbon fiber parts

Projects

We are part of DrapeBot

We are partner of DrapeBot - A European Project developing collaborative draping of carbon fiber parts.

Draping is a process used for about 30% of all carbon fibre composite parts to place layers of carbon fiber fabric in a mould. During this process the flat fabric distorts to fit to the shape of the mould. Ensuring the accuracy of draping in terms of position and fiber orientation while avoiding wrinkles is a challenging task. The DrapeBot project aims at human-robot collaborative draping. The robot is supposed to assist during the transport of the large material patches and to drape in areas of low curvature. The role of the human is to drape regions of high curvature. To enable an efficient collaboration, DrapeBot develops a gripper system with integrated instrumentation, low-level control structures, and AI-driven human perception and task planning models. All of these developments aim at a smooth and efficient interaction between the human and the robot. Specific emphasis is put on trust and usability, due to the complexity of the task and the sizes of involved robots. The DrapeBot project runs over a period of four years from January 2021 to December 2024.

Augsburg corporate run 2020

The Abele Ingenieure running team will be part of the 9th Augsburg corporate run on 16 September 2020.

This year's corporate run will once again take place on a completely car-free, flat course through the districts of Univiertel, Göggingen and Haunstetten.

The runners will be accompanied by several music groups and thousands of spectators who will cheer on the runners.

We are particularly proud of participating in the corporate run this year for the sixth time in a row. Four runners always form a team. Each team decides for itself the speed in which it performs the 6.3 km long distance.

In addition to the runner groups, there are also walking groups, so that all employees of Abele Ingenieure are able to participate.
