Precision and perfection throughout all process steps
High-quality pre-pregs selected according to strict quality criteria form the basis.
Selection of materials
Precision cutting on NC-controlled cutters in cleanrooms under ideal temperature / humidity conditions for the materials.
Layers are positioned using state-of-the-art laser technology, automated tape laying (ATL) and manual precision work. A fully automated hot-forming system turns fiber laminates into wrinkle-free narrow-radius pre-pregs.
RTM (resin transfer molding) and RIFT (resin infusion under flexible tooling) ensure the cost-effective and time-saving production of complex integrated composite parts.
