F1: Continuous Production of Thermoplastic Sandwich Structures and their Functionalization via Hybrid Injection Molding Technology

Wednesday 31 October 2018, 14:00 – 14:25
Borgward Saal

Session Chairs: M. Würtele / F. Henning


An Organosandwich, consisting of fiber-reinforced thermoplastic face sheets and a folded thermoplastic honeycomb core, can be cost-efficiently produced and used for highly economic lightweight structures. For this purpose, a fully automated process with a partial functionalization by hybrid injection molding was developed. Furthermore, the construction process was simplified by characterizing the material and developing engineering design methods for different Organosandwich types.
