• Tailored Fibre Placement allowing load optimized structures
• Cost reduction through net-shape manufacturing
• Efficient preforming for high volume production

Tailored Fibre Placement (TFP) is capable of placing carbon fibre where it is necessary and only there. This allows for complex fibre architectures eliminating dead weight and material waste. However, the technology is highly restricted concerning productivity.

Bionic Composite Technologies AG (BIONTEC) was founded in 2009 by representatives of the textile and automation industry in order to industrialise the production of CFRP components.
Based on Tailored Fibre Placement accompanied with Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) the company has developed its own manufacturing process from fibre to finished component.
Intensive development has resulted in a production process for series of up to 100'000 parts/year. Thus, it lifts the production of complex composite components to a new economic level.
By integrating the entire development and production process in-house, BIONTEC offers complex CFRP components with excellent performance to weight ratio that are ""designed for manufacturing"" and ""designed to costs"".
The process allows to choose the best material combination possible for each specific challenge. According to biomimetic design we aim to achieve the best performance with minimum material usage by placing fibres aligned to the loadpath within the net shape of the component. Subsequent to fabric production we mould ready-to-use components via RTM that can be monolithic, hollow or sandwich structures. Parts are manufactured net-shaped with high quality surface finish minimizing finishing efforts. Both the TFP and RTM process have been highly automated to achieve high and consistent product quality at competitive costs – especially for large volumes.

During our presentation we will give insight in our development and production process from the first idea to serial production an how we levarge the full potential of fibre reinforcements with biomimentic design and tailored fibre placement.
