New case study available!

The challenges for the optimization of CoFRP components are to account for multiple loads in multiple load cases, as well as to optimize both the layup type and layup orientation. A so-called anisotropy analysis is facing this challenge. Recently, we have adopted and further developed in cooperation with KIT-FAST the anisotropy analysis. Find out more in our latest case study!

Research project Accord started!

A Korean-German consortium started working on a publicly funded project called Accord for the next three years. The Accord project team will work on the industrialization of process and simulation techniques for the 3D skeleton winding process (3DSW). The aim of this research project is to develop, manufacture and commission a fully automated process line on an industrial pilot scale for the robot-based production of thermoplastic structural components using complex continuous fiber reinforcement structures.
