Official Inauguration of Fiber Placement Center (FPC) at SGL Carbon Site in Meitingen

September 24 2018

FPC is cooperation between SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV, supported by the additional partners Compositence GmbH, BA Composites GmbH and Technical University of Munich as well as - in future - also Coriolis Group SAS and Cevotec GmbH.

SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV founded the joint Fiber Placement Center at the beginning of this year. The center is headquartered at the SGL site in Meitingen, near Augsburg. System manufacturers Compositence GmbH and BA Composites GmbH as well as the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the cooperation. In addition, also the system experts Coriolis Group SAS and Cevotec GmbH are planning to come on board as partners.

Following the premiere of the FPC at the JEC World industry fair in Paris this March, the FPC celebrated its opening on site with around 150 guests from the fields of politics, science and industry.

With different high-tech systems and a space of over 500 m², the FPC offers customers the option to develop new production concepts and demonstrate them in prototype production. In addition, SGL Carbon can begin with high-volume production of fiber-reinforced components. Both dry and pre-impregnated fibers with or different plastic resins, also referred to as thermoplastic matrix systems, are processed.
