Opening Ceremony of the new building of Instutite for Advanced composites and Robotics

We officially opened the new building of the Institute for Advanced Composites and Robotics (IACR) on 1st of August. The Institute is located at 1,500m2, equipped with modern lab for testing of different control and automation systems, teaching rooms and most advanced laboratory with automated fiber placement machine, six axis filament winding machine with electronic tension control of the fibers, prepreg making equipment and two slit tape prepreg machines.

“The Institute at one place has all equipment and lines for technological trials. We have lines for production of prepreg (tow and slit-tape), and equipment for designing and manufacturing of composites structure using FW, ATL and AFP technologies. In the next period we are planning to obtain verification equipment, and with that equipment probably we will became a top research center in Europe in terms of equipment. So, today we mostly invest in creating of high-skilled staff, which together with the equipment that is available, can generates advanced technological development of our country” said Dragan Veljanoski, Director of the IACR.

„Leaders show their wisdom by transferring their knowledge and skills to new generations. Everywhere and always, leadership and learning are inseparably interconnected. I wish for many successful generations that will contribute to the prosperity of the Republic of Macedonia with their vision, innovativeness and creativity” said the President of the Republic of Macedonia, H.E. Prof. Gjorge Ivanov PhD.

The Institute has already established cooperation with several research and development centers from the European Union, Russia and China. Also, we have agreed cooperation with partners for who we will perform development of the new products, testing the application of new technologies, examining the characteristics of the final product and so on.

The Institute has postgraduate studies, divided in two modules: Module for composite materials and module for robotics. Our students have possibility for practical work on numerous Mikrosam’s projects.
