In many parts of the automotive industry and in the fields of mechanical engineering an increasing demand for affordable lightweight structures with high mechanical properties and manufacturing processes meeting demands of mass production capabilities is obvious. Through the use of new methods, the continuous fibres in thermoplastic fibre composites are placed via in-line processes and are simultaneously adjusted to the load direction resulting in high-performance devices of the next new generation of composite parts. The reinforcing fibres within the Ce-Preg®-process are totally stretched, whereby the highest potential of weight reduction can be used in fibre-reinforced structures. With appropriate processing technologies, the unidirectional 'Ce-Preg®- tapes' are utilised in load-optimised structures. The tapes are tailored for each individual application with
different reinforcing fibres, such as carbon, glass or basalt, with different fibre volume contents, in combination with the matrix materials polypropylene or polyamide high-performance thermoplastic materials meet the demands of the clients.
