Mastering Thermoplastic Composites with Expertise

The de­sign of com­po­nents made of fiber-ther­mo­plas­tic com­pos­ites is usu­al­ly close­ly linked to the pro­cess­ing tech­nol­o­gy used. For ex­am­ple, due to man­u­fac­tur­ing rea­son­s, fiber an­gles or fiber vol­ume pro­por­tions can change dur­ing pro­cess­ing and in­flu­ence the me­chan­i­cal prop­er­ties of the en­tire com­po­nen­t. For op­ti­mal uti­liza­tion of these ma­te­ri­al­s, a holis­tic view of the val­ue chain is a sig­nif­i­cant ad­van­tage. And that’s ex­act­ly what we of­fer our cus­tomer­s:

  • We know our man­u­fac­tur­ing process. We have de­vel­oped and op­ti­mized the plant tech­nol­o­gy for man­u­fac­tur­ing high-qual­i­ty prod­uct­s. We there­­fore know the rel­e­­vant process pa­ram­e­ters and their in­­flu­ence in or­der to be able to pro­­duce high-qual­i­­ty prod­uc­t­s.
  • We know our ma­te­ri­al. The fibers en­­­sure di­rec­­­tion-de­pen­­­dent me­chan­i­­­cal be­hav­ior in fiber-re­in­­­forced plas­tic­s. By us­ing ther­­­mo­­­plas­tics as ma­trix ma­te­ri­al, this is al­­­so com­bined with high­­­­­ly non-lin­ear ma­te­ri­al be­hav­ior. Knowl­­­edge of this me­chan­i­­­cal be­hav­ior is cru­­­cial for pre­­­cise com­po­­­nent de­sign. To­geth­er with the Leib­niz-In­sti­tute for Com­pos­ite Ma­te­ri­al­s, we have de­vel­oped a ma­te­ri­al mod­el that en­ables us to pre­cise­ly de­sign the com­po­nents and max­i­mize the de­gree of uti­liza­tion of the fibers used.
  • We of­fer ev­ery­thing from one source. Through the com­bi­na­tion of our own man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cess­es, our own ma­te­ri­als and a tai­lored ma­te­ri­al mod­el for the de­sign of com­po­nents, we can of­fer our cus­tomers a unique pack­age for the ef­fi­cient im­ple­men­ta­tion of com­po­nents made of fib­erther­mo­plast com­pos­ites. This spe­cial ap­proach not on­ly in­creas­es ef­fi­cien­cy, but al­so of­fers de­ci­sive ad­van­tages in terms of prod­uct per­for­mance and mar­ket re­spon­sive­ness.
