Leading-Edge Cluster MAI Carbon

mai-carbonn

Carbon fiber reinforced plastics (cfrp) are provided with an enormous lightweight construction potential – the innovations of MAI Carbon make it usable. MAI Carbon is one of five Leading-Edge Clusters, which were recommended by an independent jury on 19th January 2012 in the third round of the Leading-Edge Cluster competition for promotion by the Federal Ministry for Training and Research (BMBF). The cluster in the city triangle Munich, Augsburg and Ingolstadt pursues the objective to lead CFRP technology to series capacity by 2020. In order to achieve this goal, quantum leap innovations are required along the complete component-part life cycle, i.e. starting from the fiber and matrix material, through the manufacture of the component parts and product systems, to the stage of conclusive recycling concepts.

Various partners are bundled in the cluster, which are also members in Carbon Composites e. V. (CCeV), to increase their knowledge in order to realize technical leadership with the employment of CFRP component parts in mass production, and to make Germany the global leader in the area of fibercomposite technology. The intensive cooperation of German large-scale companies of repute and technology leaders from the application sectors involving automobile manufacture, aerospace travel, mechanical and plant engineering, as well as fiber and semi-finished product manufacturers, make the MAI Carbon Leading-Edge Cluster unique.

Founding partners

The founding partners of MAI Carbon are the companies Audi, BMW, Premium Aerotec, Airbus Helicopters, Voith and SGL Carbon, as well as the IHK Swabia, the Chair for Carbon Composites (LCC), Munich Technical College and Carbon Composites e. V.

Leading-Edge Cluster as driver for the region

The concentration of all major companies and institutions along the value chain of carbon fiber reinforced materials, which have a high potential for the future, is a remarkable unique advantage in the tri-city area of Munich, Augsburg and Ingolstadt (MAI).

This provides an ideal basis for helping the carbon composite materials technology become an established standard in various industries, such as in the automotive sector and aerospace industry, but also in the mechanical engineering field. An essen­tial prerequisite for this is a network-based and harmonized approach, which is coordinated by the MAI Carbon Leading-Edge Cluster.
