Composites poised for wider automotive use as ZSK enhances TFP technology

ZSK has developed a tailored fibre placement (TFP) process designed to reduce cost, wastage and manufacturing times for carbon composites, while offering new possibilities for improved component design and enhancing end-of-life recyclability.

Unlike the conventional approach of weaving the fibres of a composite into a perpendicular arrangement then cutting the fabric to the required shape, TFP arranges the fibres in bundles exactly where they are most needed for structural performance and stitches them into position on a compatible base layer.
