Airbag Housing
details of use case
advantages Short cycle times <60s through injection molding process

Removal of final part without any trimming necessary

50% weight reduction compared to injection molded reference part

Decoupling of process steps through TwinZ-automation concept

  • Further reduction of cycle time
  • Reduction of necessary floor space by 25%
weight Weight: 275g

50% weight reduction compared to reference part

Weight reduction driven by wall thickness of 0,5 mm due to continuous-fiber reinforced organo sheets

Reference part: Injection molded part with wall thickness of at least 3 mm

material Polypropylene/Glass fiber organo sheet (47% fiber volume content)

(PP/GF) PP/LGF30 injection molding material (30% weight content)

process Combination of injection molding and thermoforming of organo sheets in a one-shot process

Infrared heating system fully integrated into MC6 software of the injection molding machine

development status Ready for large-scale production

First serial applications already in the market

development partners KraussMaffei Technologies GmbH, Takata AG, Christian Karl Siebenwurst GmbH & Co. KG, Borealis AG, Bond-Laminates GmbH, Motan-Colotronic GmbH
