We reinforce your ideas!EC stands for “Excellence in Composites”.
With more than twenty years experience the EC group is your reliable partner for the design and production of advanced composites: Assemblies, finished parts, core details (milled and formed), panels or even a plain sheet of honeycomb – we reinforce your ideas!
EC is an established supplier for interior and structural products for the transport industries worldwide. The days when EC was only well known for its honeycombs are long gone. Nowadays honeycomb is where it starts – not where it ends!
The EC group as of today is a full service supplier of advanced composites solutions for the railway industry:
Completion of drop-in parts (inserts, reinforcements, extruded profiles, priming, grinding, coating), assembly of complete units and preassembled building groups, design and manufacturing of tools and molds from metal and reinforced plastic production of complex, shaped parts with RI and RTM using our new EC-HLM (Honeycomb Liquid Moulding) process, which delivers parts with an excellent surface quality. Prepreg hand lay-up design and manufacturing of heat-forming equipment, manual and machined processing of honeycomb and parts cold and hot forming of honeycomb parts and sandwich structures (two heat forming ovens) with twentynine CNC milling machines – among them a 5-axis ultrasonic cutting machine we can process parts, panels and core up to a length of 15m.
We work with CAD/CAM software from Unigraphics, Catia, Autocad on our fourteen modern presses we manufacture panels and parts with all established core, skin and decorative materials. Our coating line can process maximum part dimensions of 3100 x 5200 mm (122” x 204”).
Our autoclaves can produce parts up to 2000 x 6000 mm (78” x 236”) respectively 3000 x 8000 mm (118” x 315”). EC operates four production lines for the aramid honeycomb production and a separate line for the production of aluminum honeycomb.
