乐虎体育官网Fiber-reinforced plastics are mainly reinforced by embedded glass fibers or carbon fibers. Carbon-fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) have an even better ratio between strength and weight. This material is primarily used in the automotive, airline and wind energy industries, but is also used in sporting goods, construction and other sectors.

The last steps in processing give the workpiece its final shape. The workpieces must be held securely for processing in CNC machining centers or water jet cutting systems. These free-form surfaces are more difficult to process and present new challenges for clamping technology in particular.
