High-Performance Composites

Injection molding machine manufacturer ENGEL (Schwertberg, Austria) exhibited a new composite product, developed using carbon and glass fiber sheets supplied by Bond-Laminates (Brilon, Germany), at the K 2010 plastics show in Düsseldorf, Germany (Oct. 27-Nov. 3). Designed to replace metallic products in automotive applications, the organic composite sheets were produced live at the show on an ENGEL duo 2050/500 injection molding machine. A polyamide (PA) thermoplastic resin was injected onto and around sheets of glass fiber or carbon fiber. The system also allows for the injection of polypropylene (PP). Tooling for the demonstration product at the show — an automobile steering column — was provided by moldmaker Siebenwurst (Zwickau, Germany).
