Long Description:

Faserinstitut Bremen e.V. (FIBRE) is more than 20 years active in application and fundamental research and is funded by German Research Foundation (DFG). Main focus is the development high-performance fibre reinforced composites, processing technologies, simulation, quality control and material characterisation. Partners are research institutes and companies from various industries like aerospace, automotive and windenergy. The institute cooperates since 1989 with the University of Bremen and is active in research and teaching. Within the framework of the qualification program „FVK-Praktiker” FIBRE trains skilled employees in manufacturing of fibre composite components and trains skilled employees of the industry in the production of CFRP components. FIBRE employs 40 highly skilled engineers and scientists in different disciplines and technical staff. FIBRE is certified according to DIN ISO EN 9000 and EMAS III and is integrated in an international network of industrial partners, research Institutes and Universities.

Competence Description:

The core competences of the FIBRE are divided in four competence fields. The competence field “Composites, Structures and Processes” is the largest and is the most dynamic department of the institute. Here FIBRE focusses on “Duromere Composites” (P-RTM, Fast-RTM and pultrusion), “Thermoplastic Composites” (thermoforming and laying), “Simulation” (process and material simulation) and “Preforming” (hybridrovings und tailored fibre placement). In the competence fi eld “Testing Methods” the focus is amongst other on picture analysis systems for preforms quality control. In the field of “Fibre Development” the core competences are in precursors and the development of special fibres using meltspinnig. “Materials Research” is the fourth competence field with its focus on materials for composites and material characterisation in its laboratories. The laboratories are accredited according to DIN ISO EN 17025.
