Reaching the Desired Weight in just a Few Steps

KraussMaffei Customer Takata Reduces Component Weight from 560 to 275 Grams

Reaching the Desired Weight  in just a Few Steps

The FiberForm process developed by KraussMaffei combines the thermoforming of organic sheets and injection molding into one process. This process results in fiber-reinforced plastic components that are particularly lightweight yet feature a high level of strength. They are used primarily in vehicle manufacturing. KraussMaffei, together with the automotive supplier Takata, further developed the process during the manufacturing of an airbag housing. As a result, the component weight was reduced by half.
