ESA BIC Bavaria incubatee Cevotec is industrialising the production of complex carbon composites. Check out their new video, which shows Cevotec's automated manufacturing process using Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) technology.
Cevotec is bringing the Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) technology to market - an automated, patch-based production technology for carbon fibre preforms that follows a completely new approach to manufacturing. As the one-stop shop for this technology, Cevotec provides customised production systems that include an easy-to-use software suite for patch laminates. Cevotec also offers product development and production as a service for OEMs. The customers benefit from better and lighter products of the highest quality - all through scalable serial production techniques devised right in Germany.
ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria
Cevotec is incubated at the ESA BIC Bavaria from October 2015 to September 2017. The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That doesn't mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.
ESA's Business Incubation Centre Bavaria was launched in 2009 and is since managed by Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO). ESA BIC Bavaria and its renowned partners - DLR, Airbus Defense and Space, Fraunhofer IIS and Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Berchtesgadener Land - provide startups with financial and technical support at four branch offices: Oberpfaffenhofen, Ottobrunn, Nürnberg and Berchtesgadener Land.
