Composite Pressure Vessels

Thermoplastic composite pressure vessels are gaining in importance as storage or pressure vessels for gases and liquids. They consist of a thermoplastic liner, a boss part for connection of a valve and a fiber winding to achieve mechanical stability. Such composite pressure vessels are considerably lighter than traditional steel containers and absolutely corrosion free. They can also be manufactured cost-effectively.

Kautex Maschinenbau has been developing composite pressure vessels in all conceivable shapes and sizes for numerous applications since 1998. The spectrum ranges from hydrogen and CNG vessels via LPG bottles right through to compressed air vessels for truck braking systems and water filters.

We support our customers throughout the complete planning and development phases of the product, from the initial idea right through to certification for serial production. We also assist with optimization of material costs. We can supply the production system as a series of individual components or as a complete turnkey system.

Composite pressure vessel development

With us you get the development and production capability for all applications from one source, creating a sense of security. We will be with you all the way from simulation, through prototype production and certification, to serial production.

Liner and material development

Save time by taking advantage of the bundled material know-how of our experts and partners. Close cooperation with the leading global plastic manufacturers will give you a competitive edge. We will work together with you on the selection of the right materials.

Calculation and dimensioning of the fiber winding

It all depends on having the right winding. The fiber winding is of decisive importance for the mechanical stability of the composite pressure vessels and it is also a particularly cost-intensive component. Correct calculation of the winding thus makes a decisive contribution towards optimization of material consumption and product costs. We help you to reduce material and costs.

Development of the complete production process

Communication is simplified as you have a contact person and you receive all services from one source. We go beyond the development of your product and manufacture of prototypes and support you in the planning and design of your production system. You receive the complete technical equipment right through to the turnkey production system in a very short time, thereby securing a decisive competitive advantage.

Our own Technikum laboratories for prototype and small batch production

That adds value. Our customers benefit from our Technikum, an extremely well-equipped research center with countless machines for the manufacture of prototypes and small batches, as well as our test laboratory for material and functional inspections. This speeds up the development process for you.

K-Technology

Your added value for efficient production of hollow parts. With K Technology, Kautex customers achieve the perfect melt, the most homogeneous distribution, and seamless production sequences.

Technikum

From mold validation in one of our international technology laboratories via simulation and all the way to complete line-engineering, everything needed for your turnkey solution is available.
