Textechno will be working in close cooperation with the AZL and their partners to drive innovation in composite testing and to further advance excellence in lightweight production. Textechno is especially looking forward to closer contact and networking activities with polymer producers and multinationals, such as carbon or glass fiber producers or resin manufacturers.
Textechno’s managing director Dr. Ulrich Mörschel: “The precise knowledge of key material parameters is the fundamental basis of the production of high-quality composite products. With its innovative composite testing instruments, Textechno supports its customers to be more successful. Our partnership with the AZL will further help us to contribute to the advances of the composite industry.”
Dr. Stefan Fliescher, Textechno’s assistant managing director: “We are looking forward to a close collaboration with AZL to contribute to joint development and expert knowledge. Textechno’s strategic decision to apply our knowledge of textile testing technologies to the benefit of composite materials has by now led to the development of four dedicated testing instruments. These are applied by customers worldwide to strengthen their lightweight production and R&D in the field of single fiber testing, fibre-matrix adhesion, drapeability determination as well as characterization and quality assurance of rovings.”
Dr. Michael Emonts, CEO of AZL: “We are very happy to welcome Textechno on board of the AZL partner network. AZL is consisting today of 9 research institutes which are active in the field of lightweight production technology at the Campus of RWTH Aachen and 90 industrial companies worldwide. We are convinced that Textechno will find their benefit in our activities and particularly when exhibiting for the first time at our AZL innovation area at the JEC World 2019 in Paris.”
