Processing intelligent materials. For example Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) with its high growth rates. At the Swiss Plastics Expo in Lucerne (January 21 - 23, 2020, Hall 2, Booth D2101), KraussMaffei will be demonstrating how that can work, including in micro-injection molding under clean room conditions and in post-mold processing.
From the beginning of 2018, Brose has been delivering more than one million door module carriers annually to the automotve sector. Those are produced with the Krauss Maffei Fiberform Technology. Thanks to the use of continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic organosheets, reduced wall thicknesses and an integral design, the module reduces weight by 1.6 kg per vehicle compared to a standard injection molded component, and it is also more crash-proof.
