Fibre-composite lightweight design for serial production

Based on the combined method of forming and back injecting of organic sheets, the LIPA series project team is developing endless-fibre-reinforced components  … more

Raw Material

Raw material for component manufacturing are thermoplastic composites/ GMTex® and thermoplastic granulate for injection molding.

Heating

The thermoplastic composite /GMTex® is heated up to forming temperature by infrared radiation.

3D-Shaping & Back Injection

The flexible thermoplastic composite/GMTex® is reshaped three dimensionally in the LIPA-tool, then, stiffening and functional elements are injected.

Part Ejection

After cooling, the finished component, ready for assembling is ejected from the cavity.
