CIKONI is a R&D engineering venture, based in Stuttgart, Germany, that specialises on innovative lightweight and composite solutions. We develop lightweight products and concepts with high performance fibre-reinforced composites (e.g. CFRP, GFRP, AFRP) or in hybrid design for global customers. We use the latest design tools, advanced simulation approaches and composite specific FEA methods (e.g. for strength, stiffness and crash) to detail and dimension your structural components.
CIKONI composites innovation stands for holistic knowledge-based engineering services along the whole process chain. This includes manufacturing process and machinery development that suits your requirements, e.g. for cost-efficient medium volume preform production or 3D fibre winding. We advise your company in technology driven or strategic decisions related to lightweight design and support your market oriented product specification, or the establishment of a composite-specific quality management.
Our award-winning expertise has led to collaboration with partners from the automotive and aerospace industries, as well as the consumer market.
