Teijin will open the Teijin Composites Application Center (TCAC), a technical center to develop automotive and other industrial applications of carbon fibre reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) composite products, in Auburn Hills, Michigan, on April 1st.
According to Teijin, the TCAC is part of their Advanced Composites America (TACA), a company Teijin established in December 2011 to conduct marketing and develop applications for CFRTP composite products. TACA is a wholly owned subsidiary of Teijin Holdings USA, the Teijin Group’s holding company in the United States.
Teijin say their CFRTP composite business is centred on its innovative technology for high volume production of CFRTP components with cycle times of less than a minute, a breakthrough that overcomes one of the biggest challenges in the automotive industry and represents a long stride towards the increasing usage of carbon fibre in automobiles and other products.
