BMW i3 Carbon Fibre Secrets Revealed
Sandy Munro of Munro & Associates, Inc. will discuss the material and lightweighting findings from his company’s extensive teardown of the BMW i3. During his informational discussion Munro will share the BMW i3’s notable use of carbon fiber, including key aspects such as the manufacturing of the vehicle’s carbon fiber life module, its polymer components, recyclability and safety. According to Munro, with its extensive use of carbon fiber, the BMW i3 introduced material and process technologies that have the ability to radically change the automotive manufacturing sector, as well as the aircraft, high-speed train, household appliance, computer and cell phone industries. During his presentation, Munro will discuss what his company’s extensive teardown and costing analysis uncovered and how it can be applied to future manufacturing processes and applications. The BMW i3 study marks the first time Munro reports were made available for public distribution.

Composites in Future Mobility
The future of clean mobility will be shaped by new major trends where composites will have a key role to play: emissions reduction, powertrain electrification, future mobility.
Emission regulations and new city environmental policies are changing the game, requiring lower emissions. Lower emissions means weight reduction, both for thermal engine vehicles and electrified vehicles (for which the weight of the battery must be traded off).
New alternative clean powertrains bring new constraints that composites can address.
This conference presents the new potential for composite applications.

Composites: Optimal technology to current and future stakes
Composite is quite a new technology at the industrial history level (compared to metal industry) and has several advantages (weight saving, tailored design, function integration…) to become the material of the future.  Nevertheless in order to gain full acceptance, further improvement are still needed. We can in particular note:
- Product cost savings: mainly by consolidating functions
- Material cost decrease
- Development of new processes
- Development of an engineering chain

Development and trends in composite manufacturing
Over the past few decades, our cars have transformed into technological marvels, becoming safer, cooler, and more exciting to drive, while improving efficiency and sustainability. During this march of innovation, it may not have been so noticeable that the use of plastics has skyrocketed. Today’s cars are comprised of about 50 percent plastics by volume. BUT because plastics are typically lighter than other materials, plastics comprise only ten percent of today’s cars by weight. Few innovations provide a more wide-ranging performance and efficiency advantage than reducing weight. Those “advanced” materials—such as polymer composites, carbon fiber-reinforced plastics, 3-D printed plastic parts —are enabling remarkable improvements in safety, design, and performance and may usher in a whole new era in vehicle manufacturing and sustainability. Discover the latest trends & innovations in Composite Technologies and how it can contribute to an efficient mobility, through the eyes of Dr Henning, Managing Director of Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology.

Fast RTM: high cadency composite manufacturing
Fast RTM is an industrial scale platform, whose goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of mass-produced structural composite automotive parts, using reactive C-RTM process. Thanks to an automated environment (loading and unloading) and especially developed cutting edge equipments, the “Fast RTM” platform is able to realise, in cycle time of 120 s, large (up to 3 m²), fully net-shape, functionalised and structural composite parts. To ensure traceability and quality of the produced parts, this platform is also fully instrumented with automatic data acquisition, process parameters traceability, energies consumption measurement systems and on-line non-destructive control systems.

Flexible and economical process for mass production of hybrid lightweight composites
  • Continuous Fiber reinforced composites have a large potential in modern automobile and related applications, especially for structural composites. With the use of UD tapes for local reinforcements, it is easily possible to place them alongside the load passes of the component to utilize its full strength potential as well as to increase the impact resistance where they are really need to carry the load. 
  • The automotive industry with its high requirements for high-volume and quality production requires a highly efficient production process with short cycle times.
  • Dieffenbacher developed and introduced recently the new and state of the art Tailored Blank Line that copes all the requirements and therefore offers the benefit of a large-scale production in a precise, fast and economical way for the production of tailored fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites. 
  • The new tape laying system and new vacuum-assisted consolidation system developed by Dieffenbacher are the core of the Tailored Blank Line. Together with downstream systems, such as the handling robot and forming press, more than one million parts can be manufactured per year on just one line.

Fully automated direct fiber placement process for automotive large scale production
Voith Composites realised an industrialised production chain for the Audi A8 CFRP rear wall with a capacity of >300 parts/day. Among other things the net shape direct fiber placement (Voith Roving Applicator) and a segmented 3D stamping process have been developed. Bonding and riveting are realised in a fully automated assembly cell. Overall, a completely digitalised and automated production chain, that eliminated several conventional process steps, were developed based on “Carbon Production 4.0” and enabled a cost-efficient high volume CFRP production.

Innovative Composite Lightweight Solutions for Automotive and Aerospace Applications
Fiber-reinforced plastics are becoming increasingly valued in the transport industry due to their very high specific material properties. 
In the context of electro mobility, the weight-specific battery capacity has an increasing importance as an evaluation criterion for battery systems in the automotive industry. To achieve high values of >180Wh/kg innovative lightweight construction approaches are necessary. One of them is locally reinforced Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) as a resource and cost efficient process for manufacturing battery system enclosures.
An increasing number of identical parts per aircraft is pushing large-scale production processes such as Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) in the aerospace industry. Challenges, potentials and future directions of this development will be introduced at the example of an A350 door edge member.

They relate to:
- Materials: in particular use of thermoplastics reinforced by glass fibres.
- Tooling: automation of the entire production line, from preform assembly to netshape.
As small 40s to 90s cycle times can now be reached, paving the way for mass-production of composites for the automotive industry.
