High loaded structural parts are increasingly implemented as fibre-reinforced thermosets with very high mechanical properties by a low mass. High cycle times due to curing and multitudes of the manufacturing stages are the essential cost driver of those lightweight products and limit their application to parts with a small and average number of items. To overcome this problem and to take advantage of the mass production of high loaded lightweight structures, cycle times have to decrease and a higher automation during the processing has to be achieved. Due to substitution of thermoset resins by thermoplastic matrix systems the disadvantages could be eliminated. Beyond that, these materials allow excellent shaping owing to its fusibility and fast curing compared
to chemical cross-linking processes of thermosetting plastics. Further advantages which support the establishment of efficient process chains for lightweight structures are e.g. the recyclability, an unlimited storage life and the weldability as well as a good availability of ready-made semi-finished parts. The current state of technology includes line production as injection moulding of reinforced and unreinforced thermoplastics plus hot pressing of continuous reinforced semi-finished thermoplastic parts.
