The project focus is to develop innovative technologies that allow for a flexible, rapid and highly efficient production of customizable sporting goods. The molding processes to be employed should have the capacity to produce complex geometries in such a way that materials can be bonded without the need for adhesives. A significant reduction of process steps should enable a competitive local production Made in Europe, in general, a production close to the consumer.
The processes should also enable to produce sporting goods which are more easily recyclable. In addition, the nature of the process should cater for minimum to no production waste.
