Large-Scale Production of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics
MAI ProjectsThe MAI Carbon cluster in the German city triangle Munich, Augsburg and Ingolstadt persues the objective to lead CFRP technology to series capacity by 2020. In order to achieve this goal, quantum leap innovations are required along the complete component-part life cycle, i.e. starting from the fiber and matrix material, through the manufacture of the component parts and product systems, to the stage of conclusive recycling concepts.
Various partners are bundled in the cluster to increase their knowledge in order to realize technical leadership with the employment of CFRP component parts in mass production, and to make Germany the global leader in the area of fibercomposite technology. The intensive cooperation of German large-scale companies of repute and technology leaders from the application sectors involving automobile manufacture, aerospace travel, mechanical and plant engineering, as well as fiber and semi-finished product manufacturers, make the MAI Carbon Leading-Edge Cluster unique.
