SchäferRolls and MWN Niefern found a joint venture
for structural components of advanced composites
SchäferRolls GmbH & Co. KG, the manufacturer of high-performance roll covers from elastomer and
composite materials, and MWN Niefern Maschinenfabrik GmbH, specialist for the
design and manufacture of roll systems, have now founded a joint venture for
the development, manufacture and marketing of innovative structural components
made from fibre-reinforced plastics.
The registered offices of this joint venture, Schäfer MWN GmbH, are in Renningen near Stuttgart. Both companies have now combined
their competences in the fields of design, engineering, material and process
technology for advanced composites components with the aim of providing
individual and customised solutions, for example for the energy, mechanical
engineering or drive technology industries.
Initial prototypes have already been produced and are currently undergoing
successful long-term tests. The start of serial production has been scheduled
for the second half of 2013.
