Fraunhofer pioneers new CFRP production process

Engineers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology have developed a new technique for curing carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) that could hold the key to cost-effective small batch production. Current CFRP production often involves large, expensive tooling and complicated, time-consuming heat cycles. Fraunhofer’s approach, however, uses infrared radiation to apply heat directly to the … Continue reading Fraunhofer pioneers new CFRP production process
