Fibre reinforced plastics (FRPs) in machine tool building: Identification of potential applications
Due to their high specific strength and stiffness fibre reinforced plastics (FRPs) are not only significant in aviation and aerospace. They have also successfully proven their high innovation potential in different applications of machine tool building. However, they are rarely used in this field. This raises the question of whether FRPs are not a relevant option in machine tools or the right conditions for a broadly based use are simply missing. At least, the identification and evaluation of concrete possible applications point toward a solution. A method to identify potential applications for the use of FRPs in a systematic, quick and effective way is shown here.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
