As part of the excursion series "Industrial Production of Composite Materials", IVW was invited to DG Flugzeugbau GmbH in Bruchsal and A+ Composites GmbH in Weselberg on 15.06.2022. While the participants were able to gain extensive insights into the production of sailplanes at DG Flugzeugbau, the production and testing of thermoplastic tapes was on the agenda at A+ Composites.
The excursion series continued on 20.07.2022 with a visit to Röchling Automotive in Worms and CirComp in Kaiserslautern. At Röchling, the participants were introduced to several manufacturing processes for fiber-plastic composites in large-scale production, including injection molding and the LFT process. The afternoon program was dedicated to CirComp in Kaiserslautern, a specialist in the field of fiber winding technology.
In addition to the lectures given by the IVW, the excursion days gave the participants the opportunity to expand their specialized knowledge with practical impressions of the industrial production of fiber-plastic composites. We would like to take this opportunity to express our special thanks to the participating industrial companies and long-standing partners of the IVW for the insights into their daily business, which contributed significantly to the success of this event.
