CarbonForm is the name of the network of companies formed by three italian companies from Abruzzo in the field of processing composite materials.
The network contract for the development of ‘press forming‘ technologies – through the conversion to compression molding of carbon fiber parts of a production plant that previously processed metal – was signed a few days ago by ACS – Advanced Composites Solutions, Susta and U.Form.
The facility is located near Villa Zaccheo, in the municipality of Castellalto (Teramo, ITALY) , a few steps from the A14 motorway.
Carbonform, through the skills of the three partners, aims to produce in series, in particular for the automotive sector, a higher number of parts than the traditional technologies of processing composites in an autoclave.
ACS – Advanced Composites Solutions
ACS specializes in the design and production of carbon fiber components and other composites for the automotive, marine, aerospace and industrial sectors.
Susta specializes in the design and manufacture of stamping equipment for metal deformation with hot and cold process for the automotive industry, with activities ranging from engineering and design to assembly and commissioning.
The third partner of the project deals with stamping of machined and semi-finished parts for automotive with hot stamping process and is an integral part of the strategic development plan of two industrial groups, Susta and Tiberina, already partners of European automotive industries.
