3D-LightTrans logo

3D-LightTrans manufacturing chains are based on hybrid yarn incorporating thermoplastic matrix material, processed to deep draped multilayer textiles and multifunctional 3D-textile constructions, which are fixed to dry pre-forms and finally, processed into composites by thermoforming. By integrating these new, innovative process steps with full automation in -nowadays mostly manually performed- complex  handling operations, it will be possible to obtain a fully automated and highly adaptable manufacturing chain.
