On September 28, 2023, we had the pleasure of hosting Michael Johann from Porsche Engineering and Philip Fröhlig from AZL in Aachen. Our meeting was a profound exchange about the groundbreaking possibilities and challenges of using UD-Tapes in injection molding.
UD-Tapes (Unidirectional Tapes) are the key to reinforcing components. Their uniform fiber alignment allows for incredible reinforcement effects in parts, especially crucial in the automotive industry. With minimal material usage, we can significantly enhance the strength and performance of components.
Another advantage of UD-Tapes is their ability to enable targeted reinforcements in specific areas without increasing the overall weight. This leads to weight reduction, improved fuel efficiency, and reduced environmental impact.
Of course, there are challenges to overcome, such as adapting injection molding tools and ensuring material compatibility. However, we firmly believe that these obstacles can be surmounted through innovation and collaboration.
The future of injection molding is being shaped by the integration of UD-Tapes. We’re thrilled to be at the forefront of this exciting development, working alongside strong partners, and crafting tailored solutions for our customers.
Stay tuned for our progress and advancements in this thrilling domain, as we’re determined to redefine the limits of what’s possible in injection molding.
