Part of our extensive range of semi-finished products and machined components made of composites and thermoplastics is our range of systems for composite materials. We are probably the only processor in the world to offer fibre reinforced plastics, laminated densified wood and laminated pressboard. As a system provider for composites, we accompany you throughout the entire design and production process of your products
from the engineering,
through bonding, screwing, painting and mounting
up to complete tailoring.
Fibre reinforced plastics
We offer you a wide range of products made of fibre reinforced plastics. Our product range stretches from semi-finished products over machined finished parts to compression moulded parts and finished, painted and assembled sections. The manufacturing processes that are employed are as wide ranging as the range of products: moulding, filament winding and pultruding as well as machining the semi-finished products on the most modern CNC controlled milling machines in accordance with customer requirements meet all our customers’ wishes.
Unique manufacturing expertise:
GFRP and CFRP profiles with widths up to 1,000 mm, heights up to 600 mm, standard lengths up to 6,000 mm and greater lengths on request
Wound cones and parts up to a winding diameter of 3,500 mm
Compression moulded parts in dimensions of up to 1,900 x 1,400 x 1,000 mm
Lignostone® Transformerwood® is a laminated densified wood according to IEC 61061. It consists of veneers made of common beech (Fagus sylvatica) bonded using curable synthetic resins in conjunction with pressure and heat. With more than 100 years of experience in the manufacture and processing of products made of laminated densified wood, our knowledge of the material, its potential and its performance is second to none.
Unique manufacturing expertise:
We manufacture Lignostone® on state-of-the-art production facilities and the world's largest presses at a format of up to 3,560 x 4,360 mm.
Rings with an outer diameter of 3,400 mm and a thickness of 400 mm
Our Corporate Research & Development department develops the optimum formulation for your application that meets the mechanical requirements as well as the demands on fire behaviour. Economic feasibility is always the focus here.
In our in-house CAD department, we develop the design of your components together with you. Our experienced technicians and toolmakers will coordinate with you on the feasibility and the highest possible fulfilment of the requirements for your individual application. Own tool and fixture construction allows very high flexibility for a variety of tasks.
We are certified according to DIN 6701-2 (A1) for the bonding of railway vehicles and components. Our bonding specialists create high-strength, rigid and also elastic thick-bed adhesive joints. During assembly or pre-assembly, we integrate plug and screw connections made of different materials according to your specifications. We are also certified for welding rail vehicles according to EN 15085-2 (CL4).
Depending on the material, we can provide your components with paints or protective coatings as protection or visual enhancement. From simple protective functions to high-quality A1 surfaces – if necessary with protection against vandalism using anti-graffiti protective varnish – we produce high-quality surfaces for various requirements by means of different painting processes. Pre-treatments, primers and undercoats are individually matched to the base material and surface requirements of your component.
We work with reusable or disposable packaging that meets special requirements for product protection and especially surface protection. This means that we can supply you with high-quality parts ready for installation directly to your assembly section.
