Recharge is focused on revalorising composite waste material for impact energy absorption applications in the railway sector. Recharge maximises the railway axle life cycle, reduces maintenance costs and provides a competitive advantage through the development of hybrid manufacturing technology. The proposed technology, 3D overprinting, revolutionizes the manufacturing process of rail axle and wheelset protectors (flying ballast damage), addressing key challenges within the railway sector. Located strategically (#viaIRUN), it fosters a local ecosystems, generating employment and elevating community well-being while addressing crucial challenges in the railways sector.
