From idea to series production

We are your full-range service provider for thermoplastic composites.


Your competent partner for composite components, manufacturing processes, and tool design

We are at your side as a competent partner if you want to expand your product portfolio with new composite components or replace conventional components with new lightweight structures in order to increase the performance of your applications. We offer you custom-fit FRP solutions for all industries and, on request, full-service engineering: from idea through technology development to implementation for series production. The hurdles for the use of new fibre-reinforced (FRP) components are usually lower than expected and can be easily overcome with strong partners.

The advantages and potentials are obvious:

Our certified quality management system reflects our high quality standards

Our quality management system is based on the principles of thermoPre ENGINEERING GmbH on quality, customer satisfaction and occupational safety. It meets the requirements of DIN EN ISO 9001: 2015 and has been certified by TÜV SÜD since 2021.

Our services, tailor-made for your application

Reduce the mass of your components with new materials!

thermoPre ENGINEERING offers you custom-fit FRP solutions for your industry. We incorporate innovative concepts as early as the design and layout stage of your components. The targeted use of reinforcement structures in load direction enables the development of a component that is optimally adapted to real loads with the highest degree of lightweight construction and minimal material usage. This enables the moving components in your application to achieve significantly higher rotational and cycle speeds due to the lower mass moment of inertia.

For every requirement in the field of fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composites, we can present you with the most suitable current solution approaches and adapt them for your project.

Our services include:

Load-adapted semi-finished products

Innovative and connected

Strong partnerships ensure you have access to the latest technologies.

In order to reliably use new types of composites in series production and compete on the market, know-how about traditional and alternative materials, characteristic values and production technologies is necessary and in demand. For optimal results, it is necessary to know the behaviour of the composites exactly. What properties do they have, how can they be processed in the best possible way, which process parameters are decisive for consistent quality?

thermoPre ENGINEERING therefore maintains close contact with regional research institutions and is integrated into a regional R&D network. We are a member of Composites United e.V., the international network for fibre-based lightweight construction.

With us, you can enjoy comprehensive expertise. We have our finger on the pulse. Without detours, you receive everything from a single source.
