The Industry & Innovation unit has been established to develop technologies for new applications and markets regarding the use of fibre composite materials as well as the development of future technologies for lightweight components in general. In the field between sustainability, industrialisation and economic efficiency, we transfer the potential of high-performance fibre composites to new industries and applications and thus meet the high customer requirements for e.g. stiffness, dimensional stability in a large temperature ranges and optimal process routes for different batch sizes.

An interdisciplinary team takes over responsibility for these challenges, covering the spectrum from materials science, process technology, design and simulation to mechatronics. Here, strategic research topics, market analyses and customer discussions merge in internal workshops into ideas that demonstrate suitability of high-performance fibre composite structures in new applications – in a sustainable and economical way.
