InProLight: New Process Chain for Fiber Reinforced Lightweight Components
The automated production of thermoplastic long fiber reinforced polymer components has the potential to play a vital role in the uptake of lightweight parts in the automotive industry. The objective of the BMBF (German Ministry of Education and Research) sponsored project “InProLight” is to establish a process chain from the fibers right through to the trimmed and welded component.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
