SGL Carbon is shining a light on product solutions made with composite materials and manufacturing technologies for future-oriented industries under the theme "The Weight and Performance Optimizers."
SGL Carbon (Wiesbaden, Germany) is shining a light on product solutions made with composite materials and manufacturing technologies for future-oriented industries under the theme “The Weight and Performance Optimizers.” SGL’s entire product portfolio will be on display, from carbon fibers and textile semi-finished products to finished components made of carbon and glass fiber-reinforced plastics.
Specific products in SGL’s booth include a rear spoiler made of carbon fiber fabrics for a sports car manufacturer, a glass fiber-reinforced plastic (GFRP) leaf spring produced in an automated production process at the SGL plant in Austria, high-performance aerospace insulation components manufactured at SGL Carbon’s Arkadelphia, Ark., U.S., plant, and a crossbeam made of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), used in small series in the press interlinking lines of the automation industry.
Yes, advanced forms are in development, but has the technology progressed enough to make the business case?
A look at the process by which precursor becomes carbon fiber through a careful (and mostly proprietary) manipulation of temperature and tension.
