Montanuniversität Leoben - Chair of Processing of Composites

The Chair of Processing of Composites (LVV) is part of the Polymer Engineering and Science Department at Montanuniversitaet Leoben. LVV`s mission is the development of manufacturing technologies for the production of fibre reinforced polymeric materials. Its main focus is on the development, automation and simulation of the individual manufacturing processes.

Technologies and competences

Processing of unidirectional reinforced composites (placement, winding, and pultrusion), press moulding techniques (form pressing and thermoforming), and various different liquid composite moulding processes are the techniques available at LVV. Most attention is directed toward the area of processing continuously fibre reinforced components and the process-structure-property relationship.
