ELG Carbon Fibre and Sanko Gosei Formalise Partnership

20 February 2018

Following several years of technical collaboration, ELG Carbon Fibre, Sanko Engineering and Tooling (SET) and Sanko Gosei UK have formalised their partnership. A key element of this strategic alliance will be the further development of cost effective, lightweight solutions for the automotive market.

SET and Sanko Gosei have been developing design solutions that take advantage of the performance benefits that can be obtained from polymers reinforced with ELG’s recycled carbon fibre. This has facilitated the extension of injection moulded plastics into structural applications, providing significant weight savings compared with other reinforced plastic materials or metals, reports ELG.

SET’s manufacturing expertise and advanced tooling concepts are said to allow complex, high quality structural parts to be manufactured with cycle times under 1 minute.

ELG and Sanko Gosei will be displaying a range of demonstrator products at JEC World 2018 in Paris on 6-8 March.
