Fiber Engineering – Your partner in fiber-blasting technology

The Fiber Injection Molding Technology (FIM) developed by Fiber Engineering enables highly efficient production of three-dimensional molded fiber parts. With FIM 3D fiber parts can be produced with all types of fibers in almost any shape. The special feature is that different densities can be generated inside the components as needed. This reduces weight and material costs to an optimum.

Fiber Engineering develops customer-specific FIM series systems and manufactures parts from almost all fiber materials – from one piece to small and sample series.
