On 3.12.2021, three LCC employees visited Roth Composite Machinery in Steffenberg for the preliminary acceptance of the new towpreg machine. The machine can impregnate four tows in parallel at process speeds of up to 110 m/min. In addition to the four cross…

After about five years, David Colin is leaving the LCC. Started on various industrial projects, he has contributed significantly to the design of the chair in the last years as group leader, especially with a focus on virtual material characterization and…

Studies on the multi-functionality of additively manufactured parts, such as 3D printed electronics, have increased significantly in recent years. A study has been carried out at the Chair of Carbon Composites (LCC) researching on the integration of continuous…

Within the framework of a student project of the University of Art and Design Linz, tests for overbraiding of mannequin extremeties have been carried out at the Chair of Carbon Composites. The background of the work was to find new manufacturing techniques for…

The FASSAD project (ZIM FKZ: ZF4004317LL9) consortium consisting of the companies apppex, Haas Metallguss and the Chair of Carbon Composites of the TUM successfully applied fiber-reinforced salt cores in aluminum high-pressure die casting (HPDC). HPDC is well…

The project "Material efficient and cycle time optimized industrialization of 700 bar H2 pressure vessels - MaTaInH2" started at the Chair of Carbon Composites. The aim of the project is the development of a material-efficient and cycle-time optimized production…

Additive manufacturing provides increased flexibility for manufacturing parts with complex geometries. However, manufacturing these geometries with conventional planar 3D printing (also known as 2.5D printing) can cause problems, such as reduction in strength and…

The project SensoTwin – Sensor-integrated Digital Twin for High-Performance FRP Applications marks the beginning of an academic cooperation between the Chair of Carbon Composites of Technical University of Munich and Deggendorf Institute of Technology focusing on…

Due to the threat from SARS CoV 2, the SAMPE Germany Symposium had to take place virtually this year for the first time. When Munich and thus TUM's LCC were chosen to host SAMPE Germany 2021, as usual, a two-day physical meeting was planned. Unfortunately, this…

The project “Intelligent Structural Interior Composite Components with Textile Surface – InstInCT” has been launched at the Chair of Carbon Composites. The new project addresses the combination of effective, economical lightweight design with the economic…
