Biontec (St. Gallen, Switzerland) is presenting a range of components featuring composites made from the company’s production processes at its JEC World 2019 booth.

Representing a range of industries from sports and leisure to machinery equipment to aerospace applications, highlighted products feature monolithic, sandwich and hollow structures with a high degree of integration of functions. All products are meant to highlight the company’s strategy of producing net-shaped components with high surface quality out-of-mold, reducing the need for machining and finishing.

A fourth generation of a full-carbon-fiber bicycle break lever will be displayed to demonstrate the consistency and reliability of Biontec’s automated production process, reportedly capable of producing 100,000 parts per year out of a single mold.

Products from the metrology industry show the effect of tailoring thermal expansion
and stiffness through biomimetic design in complex bodies for laser scanners.

  • Colored carbon fiber

    Options for adding color have been around for decades, but new products are hoping to up the ante and open new markets.

  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
