New Automotive Carbon Fibre Research Project Launched

24 January 2012

The House of Composites (HOC), DTU Wind Energy, and Ph.D. Morten Rask has been granted 1.6 million Danish kroner (approximately 210.000€) by the Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation to form a 3 year industrial postdoc project entitled Mass production method for high quality composite material lightweight components.

According to HOC the two project partners will also make a combined contribution of 210.000 € to the project. They say the project is based on a HOC patent application and the aim is to be able to produce carbon fibre parts in prepreg quality at a tool cycle time of 5 minutes by an automated autoclave-like manufacturing process. Biodegradable solutions are also expected to be achievable.

Car manufactures will be invited to join the project for demonstration cases of first a low volume manual version directed towards sports and exclusive cars and then an automated high volume version for a mass producing car manufacturer.

The project is expected to start in April 2012.
