For many years, KraussMaffei has been working with widely varying processes for manufacturing parts made of fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP). These processes have traditionally evolved from injection molding technology and reaction technology (PU). Today our process portfolio ranges from injection molding of components with short-glass-fiber reinforcement to high-strength, lightweight parts with a complex mesh structure in a reactive matrix. We set the highest priority on manufacturing processes that are automation-capable.
Within the multi-functional processing technology called FiberForm, injection molding is combined with thermoforming of composite sheets to further improve the strength of fiber-reinforced plastic parts. This is used to form seat shells and backs, instrument panel carriers, box cover, side impact protection components, technical, underhood components and semi-structural components. This opens up infinite potential for functional integration and part design since FiberForm can be combined with almost all special processes.
