New Concepts and Products for Serial Production Applications

Carbon-Carrier
"Carbon Carrier” technology avant-garde for large-scale production

SGL Group offers its customers from various industries tailored solutions along the entire value chain. At this year’s JEC World, the largest trade fair for composites, the company presented new composite materials and components for serial production.

Carbon Carrier Technology


One of the highlights of the show was the “Carbon Carrier,” a technology avant-garde co-developed by SGL Group and Bertrandt, ready for large-scale production for new automotive body approach concepts. The exhibit was accompanied by an augmented reality presentation. The OEM neutral concept is a comprehensive system of an instrument panel based on fiber composites that integrates individual components and multiple functionalities. This is an example of flexible configurations and design possibilities for the interior of future vehicles.

Advanced Modulus


Another highlight of SGL Group was the new "Advanced Modulus" carbon fiber named SIGRAFIL® C T50-4.8 / 280. Its high stiffness makes it particularly suitable for applications in the aerospace industry. The unique feature it exhibits is that the high mechanical properties are achieved with a 50k carbon fiber (50,000 single filaments). Among other benefits, it offers significant efficiency advantages for serial production processing.

Fiber Placement Center


SGL Group and the Fraunhofer IGCV also presented their recently established Fiber Placement Center for the first time. The new center, which is headquartered at the SGL site in Meitingen near Augsburg, is intended to improve the fiber placement production process in large-scale applications across different industries and to further optimize the corresponding concepts in terms of cost-effectiveness and resource efficiency. At the JEC, Andreas Wüllner, Head of Business Unit Composites – Fibers & Materials of SGL Group and Prof. Dr. Ing. Klaus Drechsler, Head of the Chair of Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich, officially launched the new center in a celebratory on the stand.
