Challenge

Reduce production costs with the forming of an integrated shape in one shot without impairing its mechanical characteristics Accurately design parts made of high performance reinforced thermoplastics Use a dedicated software tool to evaluate the composite materials and the effect of their application

Benefits

Reduce weight of the part while maintaining the part’s mechanical properties Lower production costs Leverage engineering expertise to address the challenges of high performance composites Increase process and material understanding for future applications
