The project of the EUROPEAN REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT FUND

Project title: Waste-free technology of shaping drinking water fittings made of lead-free copper alloysi


The project is implemented under the consortium agreement by:

• Poznań University of Technology, Poznań – Leader

• Institute of Non-Ferrous Metals, Gliwice

• Fabryka Armatur “Swarzędz” sp. Z o.o., Rabowice

• Plastic Working Institute, Poznań


The implemented project is a response to the market needs in the field of gradual phasing out of lead brass by producers of products intended for contact with drinking water. As part of the project, a concept, basis and technical assumptions will be developed for waste-free forging of drinking water fittings from lead-free copper alloys. The development works will be related to the adaptation of the mechanical press for the needs of the research stand for the analysis of the waste-free forging process of elements made of new alloys in industrial conditions.


The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Intelligent Development Operational Program

Implementation period: 01.01.2017 – 31.12.2019

Total grant amount for the project: 3 257 968,43 pln
