CIKONI Composites Innovation

Stuttgart, Germany

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.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements – the first step to a long-term successful collaboration. We look forward to your challenges.

Our expertise includes:

  • Composite conceptual design and detailed part design with CAD
  • Dimensioning, strength calculation and numerical optimisation with FEA
  • Process development for automated preforming and 3D fibre winding
  • Holistic quality management for composites 
  • Strategy and technology consulting for lightweight innovations
  • Method development and material characterisation for composites simulation
  • Engineering for additive manufacturing
