Innovative Composite Lightweight Solutions for Automotive and Aerospace Applications
Fiber-reinforced plastics are becoming increasingly valued in the transport industry due to their very high specific material properties. 
In the context of electro mobility, the weight-specific battery capacity has an increasing importance as an evaluation criterion for battery systems in the automotive industry. To achieve high values of >180Wh/kg innovative lightweight construction approaches are necessary. One of them is locally reinforced Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) as a resource and cost efficient process for manufacturing battery system enclosures.
An increasing number of identical parts per aircraft is pushing large-scale production processes such as Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) in the aerospace industry. Challenges, potentials and future directions of this development will be introduced at the example of an A350 door edge member.
