Increasing application of advanced manufacturing technologies

The global automotive market is experiencing rapid adoption of high-strength materials that not only adds to the overall performance of the vehicle but also helps in overall weight reduction. Implementation of carbon fibers in the automotive industry requires advanced carbon fiber manufacturing techniques. This turns out to be important for automakers and auto component manufacturers to gain more competitiveness and cost-effectiveness in the market.

Advanced production technologies are being incorporated by automotive carbon fiber component designers and manufacturers as they help in reducing the manufacturing and assembling costs while meeting the quality standards and specific configurations as required by the respective automotive applications. During labor-intensive activities, the innovative manufacturing techniques utilize fast cycle manufacturing processes, faster automation processes, and layup automated techniques. Carbon fiber components use a special resin-like epoxy 4831 as an adhesive to improve performance.

“Engineers and designers are making use of advanced composite software tools and utilities to aid in the automation of processes by fusing speed into the drive shaft manufacturing. These software tools consist of advanced design, analysis, and manufacturing simulation software tools using knowledge-based analysis. Also, the automotive carbon fiber components industry is also using innovative cost modeling, and custom design integrated virtual manufacturing systems,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automotive components.
