Once designed, prototype-tested and finalized for manufacture, Schiebel’s production facility is brought to ensure the component is manufactured to the highest of standards.
The precision requirements and high-technology applications are so exacting that it will come as no surprise to learn that Schiebel’s composite facility has been instrumental in some of the most advanced composite applications.
Noteworthy is the involvement in the aerospace components for the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner as well as various high-specification components for the racing sports industry. Parts include aerodynamic front-wing components, crumple zone areas of the monocoque section and heat-protection parts around the engine bay and the exhaust. All components are viable given the exceptional and specific properties of composite materials, including weight-saving, structural shaping opportunities, robustness and heat protective properties. The opportunities of composites have no boundaries and the additional electro-conductivity coupled usefully to the electromagnetic shielding properties offers a host of clever applications to a myriad of industries.
