Tailored Fiber Placement
For your robust & durable products

You place high demands on the performance and durability of your plastic products – thermoplastics (polypropylene (PP), PEEK, polyamide 6 (PA6)) and thermosets (polyester resins, epoxy resins, silicones) – SMC material (mixture of reactive resins and glass fibers) or concrete. Are conventional production methods reaching their limits when it comes to the complexity of your components? Tailored fiber placement creates complex shapes and structures without complex machining steps or assembly processes. Do your applications require special mechanical or structural properties that are difficult to achieve with conventional manufacturing methods? With tailored fiber placement, we place a specific combination of fibers so that the components meet your requirements. Are you developing or optimizing materials for high-performance applications that need to be extremely light and at the same time extremely rigid and tensile? With tailored fiber placement, we maximize the strength of your components while keeping weight to a minimum. Tailored fiber placement opens up completely new possibilities for your products!

Targeted reinforcement through tailored fiber placement

Tailored fiber placement (TFP) is a process for manufacturing semi-finished textile products from fiber strands. Our CNC embroidery machines lay fiber strands (also known as rovings) made of carbon, glass fiber, aramid and other fibers onto flexible carrier materials. We align the fiber orientation individually to the force curves in your product. Between the stitches, the embroidery machines move the carrier material and embroider the fibers in the optimum fiber orientation. We can also easily integrate functional threads, sensors, wires or heating conductors in any shape into your fiber preforms during fiber laying. Alternatively, this process is also known as roving laying.

Benefit from tailored fiber placement

Economical

Cost-efficient production of complex preforms, textile sensors and heating elements

Complex structures

Production of complex patterns, layers or arrangements of fibers for precise reinforcement

Lightweight & stable

Lightweight fibers and carrier materials, but high rigidity due to optimal alignment

Hybrid

Individual combination of lightweight fibers (carbon, glass fiber, aramid, basalt, ...) and metals

Multifunctional

Seamless integration of heating wires or sensor threads in fiber structures

Reproducible

Production with high repeat accuracy in small and large series

Reinforcement made from natural fibers for your sustainable products

If you attach particular importance to the sustainability of your products, use natural fibers instead of carbon or glass fiber. Natural fibers such as flax, hemp or jute are also suitable as rovings for tailored fiber placement. As renewable resources, they score points for their environmental friendliness compared to conventional fibers. They are biodegradable, very light and biocompatible. Natural fibers also offer you complete design freedom.

Sustainability is an important value in our company.
