Process Integration: Lightweight Parts with a Thermoplastic Matrix
Fabric-reinforced plastic parts are characterized by low weight, good mechanical properties and favorable crash behavior. A new manufacturing process combines thermoforming of a thermoplastic sheet with fabric reinforcement and injection molding. It offers an economical and stable method for mass production of high-strength lightweight parts.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
