Application Center Textile Fiber Ceramics
The application center Textile Fiber Ceramics (TFK) in Münchberg is a collaboration between the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the Hof University. The application center uses the skills and equipment existing at the Hof University in the field of textile fiber processing, finishing and testing. It conveys well established textile processing techniques such as weaving, braiding, knitting or nonwoven production to ceramic fibers. This way, a gap in the development of ceramic fiber composite materials from the fiber to its processing and CMC is closed at Fraunhofer-Center HTL. In addition, an address for textile issues with inorganic fibers is constituted for upper franconian and supraregional companies.
