KraussMaffei Group Fritzmeier Group uses high pressure resin transfer moulding equipment from KraussMaffei Group to make parts for BMW's i3 car.
German automotive supplier Fritzmeier Group uses the HP-RTM technology from KraussMaffei Group to manufacture carbon-fiber-reinforced components.
HP-RTM stands for high-pressure resin transfer moulding.
Fritzmeier, at its plant in Bruckmühl, produces a wide range of composites components for nameplates such as BMW, Mercdes Benz and Rolls Royce.
In 2014, the company invested in another of KM’s HP-RTM machines and moulded parts for the body of the BMW i3 electric car.
The system uses a customised HP RimStar Compact in the design of a four-strand machine with four mixheads. Two presses at a time can be operated from this machine. By using switchover units, two presses with dual cavities can be operated using a single four-component machine — avoiding the need for an additional metering system.
KraussMaffei is based in Munich.
