9 Mar 2016 But one trend stands out: The lightweight composite materials on display at last year's New York international Auto Show offer insight into what to . in many cars, such as the audi R8, these trim pieces are available as extras.
in automotive. Coil spring made of glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP); GFRP spring weighs 40-70% less than steel First composite material coil springs patented by Sogefi and developed with audi will guarantee the new car a weight
audi has announced that the new A8 will feature a carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) rear bulkhead and parcel shelf. Scheduled for introduction later this year, the body shell of the car will incorporate a mix of four different materials – steel,
14 Aug 2017 audi is taking an unconventional approach to assemble its RS 5 Coupe: having humans work side-by-side with robots on the model's CFRP roofs. The employee takes the roof with the aid of a handling device and installs it in the car. As audi notes, the ACMA's composites Growth initiative (CGI) committees promote and expand the use and understanding of composite materials.
audi and Voith composites iterate the CFRP rear wall from R8 sports car to A8 luxury sedan via an automated DowDuPont will operate as a holding company under with three standalone divisions – Agriculture, materials Science and
6 Jun 2017 Both audi and BMW benefit not only from CFRP's singular set of properties – stiffness, strength and low mass – but also from the material's bleeding-edge image, which burnishes their reputation for refined luxury and
audi reports that it is evaluating composite materials in two emerging applications. The first is bonding via resin transfer molding (RTM) of a laminate of carbon fiber composite to some aluminum structures. The second is development of

audi takes it upon itself to design and develop carbon fiber composite structures that, the company hopes, will enter But putting composites on the same material palette as the auto industry's still-preferred steel and aluminum will take time
The new GFRP coil springs can be assembled on cars and light commercial vehicles without affecting the suspension system audi reports that it can precisely tune the composite springs and points out that the material will not corrode, even
For shell constructions, drive trains and chassis, fibre composite materials pave the way for technical and economic ACE was nominated by audi to develop and manufacture crash relevant CFRP parts for the new car body “MSS”. internaly
10 Apr 2017 For the next generation of the A8, audi is employing a mix of four materials – CFRP composites, aluminum, steel and magnesium, in the body structure, known as the audi Space Frame (ASF). While most of the car will be
9 Mar 2018 Mass production of automotive composites, recycling and composites in shipbuilding are just some of the themes from this These will result from integrating Plataine's Cut Plan Optimization Solution into Airborne's automated kitting system, and will enable composite material utilization to be Voith composites automated production line for audi A8 rear wall Voith Roving Applicator
