Carbures moves towards the ultra light car

Carbures Mobility moves forward in its objective to lighten the weight of cars and to contribute to a more sustainable economy. This Carbures division is involved in ESFERA –a project focusing on the concept and engineering of a new hybrid super structure much functional and lighter for future vehicles- whose conclusions will be absolutely relevant for this economic sector. The person responsible for this project said so in the third edition of the Industrial 4.0 Summit in Vigo (Spain) last week.

ESFERA is an acronym for “idea and development of a new hybrid super structure much functional and light for future vehicles” in Spanish. This project is coordinated by a company called Plastic Onmium and relies on the participation of PSA Group, Tromosa and Ledisson AIT. ESFERA counts with the collaboration of CTAG (Technological Automotive Center in Galicia) and with the support of the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness. It is co-financed by the Structural Funds from the European Union.

Carbures has years of experience in the implementation of composites in the automotive sector. The main objective of our Company in this sector, as well as in the aerospace sector, is to lighten vehicles’ weight by the use of lighter structures- manufactured in composites, much lighter than any other material- and also less contaminating. This allows using less fuel and generating fewer Carbone dioxide emissions (CO2).

Carbures is well-known by the main players in its sectors because of its industrial and technological capacities. Our site at El Burgo de Osma (Spain) counts with the technology RMCP, exclusive to BMW and Carbures, which is a revolution for the production of large series of composites. Carbures’s investment in R+D generates confidence from the main car manufactures and automotive Tier 1 worldwide. Carbures’s participation in several international research committees, signed contracts and our engineering, production and commercial capacities at Burgo de Osma and Manresa (Spain), Munich, (Germany), Tychy (Poland), Querétaro (México), Detroit (USA), and Shanghai (China) account for all that.
