Together with our partners ANYBRID GmbH, INOMETA GmbH and the Institute for Lightweight Construction and Plastics Technology at the Technical University of Dresden, we have rethought the functionalization of high-performance profiles.

In the process, Mitsui's TAFNEX® high-performance tapes were processed into composite profiles using laser-based thermoplastic winding at INOMETA before they were then functionalized with #ROBIN. Polypropylene was used here as the material base. A generic pipe demonstrator with splined shaft, sliding surface and thread was implemented. We were thus able to successfully demonstrate the high design and functional diversity of this process chain.
