Continuous compression moulding has been used to produce an aerospace profile for the first time, a profile onto which the cabin interior panels are fixed.

The patented production system allowed all the technical target to be met and also achieved a weight reduction of over 50%. ACM Markdorf invested more than two years of development and intensive test series to meet all the requirements from Airbus.

It is planned to manufacture more than 9000 meters of profile in 2006, for over 80 aircraft. This new carbon reinforced PEI profile replaces the aluminium profile.
