Competence Description:

FRIMO is a leading technology provider for tooling and machinery equipment around the processing and post-processing of composites made with all standard reinforcement fibers in combination with thermoplastics and thermoset matrices. Besides the classic natural-, glass-, basalt- and wood-fiber composites, this more and more involves carbonfiber reinforced plastics. In view of constantly growing demands for a electromobility and lightweight construction, the share of CFRP components in particular is increasing significantly, and that includes series production vehicles. For lightweight construction applications under large-scale production conditions, FRIMO is able to offer complete solutions through its partnership with Schuler. Products and services range 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, GMT, LFT, BMC, SMC and RTM.
