Boge Elastmetall manufactures safety-relevant structural components in series from locally reinforced fiber composite material. Using the example of a brake pedal, the automotive supplier presents the development and manufacturing process. The partners are the companies Celanese as material supplier, Cevotec for structural design and M.A.i for automation technology.

UD Tapes in Serial Components

Hybrid designs combine materials with different properties in one component and can lower previous weight and cost limits. This is possible by tuning the component properties to the local requirements in accordance with the principle of using the right material in the right place on component part level. Fiber- reinforced plastics are increasingly penetrating areas of the vehicle that were previously reserved for metals. The proportion of plastics in structural vehicle components is increasing. Economical lightweight designs for relevant piece numbers with short and continuous fiber-reinforced...
