Formax recently developed a range of materials that would combine drapeability, good structural properties, and a new method of binding the materials in a preform structure prior to injection to meet the requirements of the latest Lamborghini.
According to Formax, their product engineers worked closely with carbon specialist, Paolo Grati, and Lamborghini’s design team, to define the best fabrics for Lamborghini’s innovative production process. They say the resulting quadaxial structures, stitched with their “tacky-stitch” specifically designed for preform applications, were refined many times before the final optimised version was finally chosen by Lamborghini to reinforce the chassis for their brand new carbon supercar.
Formax say they are proud to be part of such an exciting and innovative project that proves that with the right fabrics, carbon fibre can be processed at speeds and efficiencies conducive with high volume automotive manufacturing processes.
