Carbon Fiber Torque Tube

This CFRP torque tube is unique in its performance, complexity, dimensions and manufacturing process and has been developed for extreme lightweight construction and vehicle performance. Extreme lightweight construction (-40%), highest stiffness and NVH performance, high safety reserves, temperature load up to 200 degrees, and monolithic implementation of the complex structure in a one-shot production step. It was produced with a new process (first time in auto industry) that is a combination of resin transfer molding and a process from blow molding flexible tubes. The component was inflated in the interior of the tool by vacuum and overpressure. The injection from the resin takes place from the outside.
