Shorter cycle times place ever-greater demands on machinery components in terms of rigidity and damping behavior. At high line speeds, metallic lightweighting materials such as aluminum are increasingly reaching their strength limits. The required precision at varying ambient temperatures can only be achieved by materials exhibiting only minimal thermal expansion. Resistance to chemicals and specific electric characteristics are required for various types of use.
Often, these requirements can only be met by carbon fiber and glass fiber reinforced plastic components. This material class is characterized not only by low weight, but also by enormous rigidity, excellent damping behavior, good fatigue strength, high resistance to chemicals, X-ray transparency, adjustable electric properties, minimal thermal expansion, etc.
TEUFELBERGER is the go-to specialist for fiber composite solutions for tubes, shafts, rollers, struts, and entire frame structures. For this, we use primarily our patented T-Igel® connection for the transmission of forces into the carbon fiber composite structure.
The components are manufactured in a cost-optimized manner in the RTM process. In it, braided carbon fiber structures but also wound fiber structures and embroidered fabrics (TFP) are used as textile reinforcement structures. The respective composite fibers (carbon fibers, glass fibers, aramid fibers, basalt fibers, etc.) are used flexibly according to customer specifications and property profiles. Since we understand the needs of our customers, we find the solution that is best suited for any of your applications.
