From the fiber to the hood.

Preform, RTM press, A-coat, milling machine, adhesive robot – in our heritage-protected plant in Esslingen, we manufacture carbon fiber engine hoods. For this purpose, the carbon fiber for the inner and outer shell is pressed into multiple layers in various processes.
With a clamping force of 2,500 tonnes and a foundation that reaches two floors deep, epoxy resin is injected.

A true innovation of our house is the A-coat. Time and cost savings while improving the appearance – such interactions is what we like. In short, the painting of visible components made of carbon is very expensive. At eacc, we use another tool, fill the component with special resin and thereby obtain a wonderfully smooth surface that only needs to be painted once more.
