Low weight, high stiffness: One-piece construction suitable for different vehicle models.

details of use case
advantages One-piece construction suitable for different vehicle models > cost reduction through high volume

Combination of low weight and high stiffness > achieved by topology optimization and FE analysis (material layout, fibre layer orientation, definition of wall thickness)

Selective local reinforcement possible for any given load (e. g. stepping on the seating area, striking cargo etc.)

Integrated interface for mounting in the vehicle (function integration)

Tooling and production process widely spread

material Glass fiber with epoxy resin, local reinforcement with carbon fiber tapes
system and process details RTM-process with horizontal press, manual draping of the glass fiber fabric
development status Concept for prototype production
development partners KATCON Global, M.TEC GmbH
