ELG Carbon Fibre, which makes recycled carbon fibre materials, and European companies Sanko Engineering and Tooling (SET) and Sanko Gosei UK (Sanko Gosei), have formalised their commercial partnership.  An important part of this strategic alliance will be the development of composites for the automotive market, the companies say.

SET and Sanko Gosei have developed designs using polymers reinforced with ELG’s recycled carbon fiber. This combination of technologies has facilitated the extension of injection molded plastics into structural applications, providing weight savings compared with other reinforced plastic materials or metals, according to ELG.

SET’s manufacturing expertise makes it possible for structural parts to be manufactured with cycle times under one minute.
