With more than 30 years of experience, FRIMO is one of the leading technology providers in the field of fiber-reinforced composites processing. JEC Composites, the biggest European trade fair for lightweight construction and composite materials, is being held in Paris from 29 - 31 March 2011, and FRIMO will be there to present its full range of manufacturing solutions for composites, from individual tools and machines to complete turnkey solutions.
The FRIMO Group is presenting its products and services to the professional visitors within the framework of the joint exhibition stand of CFK-Valley Stade, the leading competence network for CFRP lightweight construction solutions. The portfolio presented by FRIMO will cover the full spectrum of tools and equipment for the processing and post-processing of composites made with all standard reinforcement fibers in combination with thermoplastics and thermoset matrices.
Along with classic natural-, glass-, basalt- and wood-fiber composites, this also involves more and more carbon-fiber reinforced plastics. In view of constantly growing demands for electromobility and lightweight construction, the share of CFRP components in particular is increasing significantly in the automotive industry, and that includes series production vehicles.
In this context, FRIMO can already look back over a large number of successful reference projects. Well-known OEMs and tier1 suppliers use FRIMO equipment to manufacture their lightweight components. No matter whether it involves highly complex monocoque applications made of CFRP or wing components for aircraft: the company’s references range from the aerospace and automotive industry to the rail vehicle sector as well as to sports and recreation applications, also including water sports. Applications in the area of commercial vehicles and in the agricultural machinery sector round out the spectrum.
These tools and equipment from FRIMO feature a large degree of automation, which, together with high reproducibility, ensures short cycle times and the efficient use of material. For lightweight construction applications under large-scale production conditions, FRIMO is able to satisfy customer demands for complete solutions through its partnership with SCHULER.
In its competence centers, the FRIMO Group provides its customers with a wide range of capabilities for analyzing materials relative to the manufacturing process, designing tools and equipment for prototypes and series production, and fabricating prototypes and pre-series parts. The spectrum of services ranges from pre-forming and pre-cutting to the actual molding or forming process and post-processing by means of flexible trimming or plastic joining technology, all the way to component assembly. And these manufacturing equipment is optimally tailored to the different production processes, e.g. RRIM, SRIM/GMPU, Long Fiber Injection, CFRP, GMT, LFT, BMC, SMC and RTM. Depending on the customer requirements and the degree of automation, FRIMO also takes care of the complete handling system and system integration.
