Teijin building Japanese composites plant

December 07/2011

(europeanplasticsnews) -- Teijin plans to establish a plant that will have the capability to mass-produce carbon fibre-reinforced thermoplastic components.
The company said in a news release that the plant will be the first of its kind in the world, fully integrated from production of carbon fibre on-site, all the way to finished parts.

The integrated process will reduce cycle times for moulding parts to less than a minute. That will allow faster production of prototypes and performance evaluation tests.

The 2 billion yen (?19m) pilot plant will be located at Teijins Matsuyama factory in Ehime Prefecture, Japan.

Construction will begin shortly, with operations scheduled to start in mid 2012. Teijin said its mass production technique has the potential to help automakers use more lightweight carbon fibre parts.
