Producing Lightweight Components for Mobility Applications

Structural components made of composite materials are already used in some series models. The market is growing steadily. At ENGEL you will find solutions for industrial-scale production of lightweight plastic components made of composites. You will be provided with sophisticated production systems with well thought-out processes. Benefit from economical production in large quantities.

Advantages of ENGEL in the Production of Lightweight Plastic Components
Lightweight composite parts instead of heavy metal structures

The shift to electric cars is steadily increasing the average weight of a vehicle. The main reason for this is the large batteries needed for greater range. The additional weight must be compensated for elsewhere. Lightweight components made of plastic and composites can replace heavy metal structures. This achieves the balancing act between low weight and good stability. With ENGEL solutions for lightweight composites, you can produce high quantities cost-effectively.

Comprehensive solutions from a single source thanks to an extensive portfolio
