Composites made in hybrid injection moulding
Wound composite inserts für cost efficient lightweight design in injection moulding
Local use of endless fiber reinforced materials for part performance optimization
Continuous fiber reinforced, thermoplastic composites can improve performance of injection molded parts, reduce the mass of injection molding material needed or allow additional functionalization. By using the same plastic material in granules and tapes, optimal bonding can be achieved.
Tape laying or winding for part enhancement
Material savings and reduction of assembly group complexity
Local application of tape layers for mechanical property enhancement or the use of wound shells as bearing shells are only two examples for tape laying / tape winding combined with injection molding.
Efficient material usage – Maximum cost efficiency
Tapes with continuous fiber reinforcement are only used locally. Hence, enhanced part performance can be achieved while maintaining the cost benefits of injection molding.
Feasibility for high volume series with CFRP and GFRP composite components
As automatized and efficient manufacturing of wound composites parts like tubes and shells is feasible in thermoplastic tape winding, high volume series compatibility can be ensured.
