Testbed for sustainable composite production

Today, the composite industry in Sweden is generally characterised by flexibility and low volumes for, for e.g. aviation and marine industries. If more industries, such as the automotive industry, shall be able to take the next step and develop composite components, there is a need for new knowledge and production investments of fiber composites.

The test bed for sustainable composite manufacturing provides the opportunity to develop and verify manufacturing in an industrial and automated environment. It includes the entire chain, from raw materials to fiber winding, SMC / prepreg, pressing and forming, trimming and quality control. The test bed also provides valuable input and data for a simulation-driven design process, which is the key to implementing sustainable composites in the industry.

Here are some examples of what we can help you with:

  • Development and testing and verification of tools
  • Materials, product and process development, including proof-of-concept, verification and validation
  • Calculations and simulations
  • Development of automation equipment
  • Sample test
  • Prototype production
  • Sustainability- and LCA analysis
