Together with our partners from INOMETA GmbH and Mitsui Chemicals Europe GmbH as well as the Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology we have rethought the functionalisation of high-performance profiles.
The high-performance tapes TAFNEX® were processed into composite profiles by Mitsui in laser-based thermoplastic winding at INOMETA before they were then functionalised 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.
