Page Overview: Carbon

HIGH-TECH MATERIAL FOR THE MOBILITY OF THE FUTURE.

 

 

 

 

Carbon is unrivalled by conventional materials. The composite material offers numerous positive properties in a unique combination: it is very light, extremely rigid and corrosion resistant. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The foundation of the Landshut Innovation and Technology Center (LITZ) in 1999 marked the beginning of CFRP production in the automotive industry. Thanks to the vigorous development of materials and processes over the past 15 years – primarily the production of the CFRP roofs for the BMW M models – our specialists have gained unparalleled expertise when it comes to CFRP-specific processes in large series production. In this technology, carbon body parts for the BMW 7 Series and the trendsetting models of the sub-brand BMWi are produced as well as CFRP components in small series volume, i.e. for BMW M and MINI.
