Carbon Composites

The laboratory of carbon composites is focused on the development of lightweight structures, their materials, manufacturing processes and testing.

Our main tasks are the development and characterization of components made of fibre-reinforced composites, based on design, manufacturing and testing requirements. This includes the production and testing of prototypes. An extensive and universally usable, modern infrastructure is available for this purpose.
