Mechanical Engineering

Our Applications

In challenging mechanical engineering applications, aluminum or steel components quickly reach their limits. Carbon-fiber-reinforced composites open up completely new dimensions in the performance of machinery and plants. The prepregs and finished components supplied by SGL Group offer high strength and stiffness as well as good damping behavior. Thanks to the broad range of intercombinable matrix and carbon-fiber materials, CFRP components can be produced with material properties specially tailored to the application. Typical applications: rapiers, connecting rods, oscillating beams, rotor bows.

The use of composites in mechanical engineering provides a range of advantages such as:

• higher output
• lower costs in the event of damage
• lower energy consumption
• reduced maintenance and so longer useful production time
