Dieffenbacher Fiberforge

Tape laying system 4.0

The innovative carbon fiber layup system Fiberforge from Dieffenbacher sets a new standard in the field of composite technology and was successfully published at the K-fair 2016 in Düsseldorf. Defortec designed the housing and new appearance of the brand Dieffenbacher. The fully automated production line is used for the production of thermoplastic carbon fiber components in field of automotive lightweight construction and aircraft construction.

The clear and dynamic lines impressively emphasize the speed and high precision of the manufacturing process. Due to the special design concept, the tape laying system does not only distinguishes from its competitors from a technological point of view. The novelty of the process technology and the high process speed
are visible to the viewers.

The central process module offers a transparent glass area, which provides insight into the technical components and allows quick access during maintenance work. The transparency of the mineral glass surface underlines the high quality of the system and also reduces the optical volume. The glass surface is transformed into a large-area signal light by means of an LED light module.

"Industrial design"

Industrial design or product design is focused on concepts for industrially produced products. It‘s mainly divided into two sections: a) the designing of consumption goods and b) the designing of capital goods. Consumption goods are furniture, sanitary products, and electronic products, while capital goods involve design development from product plants and medicine and laboratory equipment. It‘s concentrated on products for professional users. On these projects the designer works often in interdisciplinary teams. Its responsibilities are structure studies, brand development, optimization of the function while taking into account the needs of the target group. A designer is an creator for series-produced products and not an artist who is creating a single item.
