Schuler expects 50% cost decrease with “iComposite 4.0” research project

Composite materials such as carbon fiber reinforced plastics are still used sparingly in lightweight automotive engineering, and have not yet made the leap into series production. The manufacturing costs for parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) are simply still too high. Within the research project “iComposite 4.0”, Schuler and its partners have succeeded in reducing the costs for a prototype part by more than 50 percent and throughput times by more than 40 percent.
