SHAPE has developed a method of Hot Press Forming (HPF) carbon composite parts.
By using modern hydraulic presses specifically developed for forming carbon composites SHAPE has the ability to produce high quality carbon fibre parts in a fully automated and autonomous cell.
The goal is always to reduce the cycle time for the manufacturing of main stream carbon composite parts.
SHAPE is constantly conducting R&D to establish new material properties and processing possibilities with the goal of improving part mechanical performance and reducing manufacturing times.
SHAPING THE FUTURE WITH COMPOSITES
Innovation is what drives SHAPE and the ability to push engineering boundaries with R&D to develop novel technologies and processes for the benefit of our customers and the industry.
Collaboration and developing strong partnerships ensures the benefits of our innovation are passed on quickly and directly to our customers and suppliers for the benefit of every party.
Automation is key to manufacturing efficiency and all the manufacturing processes developed at SHAPE are fully automatable to ensure the highest levels of quality, repeatability, speed and efficiency.
