Design and interior

Textiles made from carbon and glass fibres for reinforcing composite materials will also be another topic on the company’s stand. A futuristic installation will be demonstrating the process from production on the machine to resin treatment.

This comfortable chair is made from concrete with a reinforcing material made from a biaxial carbon-fibre textile. Visitors will be able to learn more about processing textile reinforcement into furniture by watching a video at the info point. In addition to Paulsberg’s film, another will also be shown illustrating the design features and operating sequences of multiaxial warp knitting machines.

Other applications
