Design

We use a combination of the composite technical materials available and additive manufacturing processes to create parts that meet technical and financial requirements.

IRMA accompanies you in the process of defining your projects and writing your technical specifications.

We are committed to assisting you in the design or reverse engineering of high-tech products that meet mechanical, thermal and other demanding physical performance requirements, thus supporting you in your technical decisions.

Formulation

Our plastic material formulation capabilities allow to adjust materials’ properties to the requirements of different fields of application.

Additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is a process that allows to manufacture 3D objects based on a digital file. It is called ‘additive’ because the construction of parts is based on the superposition of material layers. This technology allows to produce complex shapes that it would be difficult to create using traditional moulding or machining methods or other subtractive technologies.

All digital manufacturing starts with a comprehensive 3D model in order to enable fibre placement following a stacking plan that indicates the areas to reinforce. This model is sectioned in accordance with the machine’s features in order to create placement paths that are adapted to the part.

Characterisation

Our characterisation tools allow us to evaluate the physical, chemical and thermal properties of different materials and parts. They can be applied to product-related services, to samples provided by customers or during the fine-tuning phase for new materials and processes.

Upcycling / Recycling

Today, composite thermoplastic parts are often not recycled. The benefits of upcycling these materials—which are very valuable in terms of performance and financial viability—should be clear when considering the environment.
