The composite fibre material CFRP (carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic), manufactured from carbon fibres and epoxy resin, has become indispensable in the aerospace, wind energy and racing industries. This is thanks to its numerous positive characteristics, which are unique in this combination. For example, CFRP has a comparatively low density with a very high stability and rigidity.
In at least the same function, CFRP is a good third lighter than aluminium and at most half as heavy as steel. All this makes CFRP the ideal material for use in modern lightweight construction with the aim of increasing energy efficiency in order to conserve resources and thus protect the environment long term.
As a partner of leading industrial companies, IBG has been developing automated production techniques for many years to enable the economical mass production of CFRP components, especially in the automotive industry. IBG then transferred its extensive know-how concerning processes, tools and processing to many other industries at an early stage.
Due to its extensive experience, IBG provides its partners with support and cooperation at an early stage of the project. From development through design and prototype construction to batch production of the complex CFRP gripping systems, IBG customers receive all engineering services from a single source in order to promote the expansion of these groundbreaking future technologies.
