We are a spin-off of the renowned Leibniz Institute for Composite Materials at RPTU in Kaiserslautern. The founders Dr.-Ing. Marcel Bücker, Valentin Hörtdörfer and Dr. Thomas Robbert (from left to right) are experienced experts in the fields of product development, manufacturing and business development. 
The company is based on the patented CompoSpoke manufacturing technology, which enables spokes and spoked wheels made of fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) to be produced particularly efficiently. The technology's commercialization is being funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and the European Social Fund as part of a 2019-2023 EXIST research transfer. In general, the technology can be used for many applications in the production of spoked wheels. For example, it can also be applied to machine elements, wind power technology or materials handling technology.


Our technology offers several technical advantages compared to other FRP manufacturing methods. In addition, it can take advantage of the technical superiority of composite materials over conventional materials.

State of the Art

Why is it so expensive to manufacture FRP-Wheels?

The current processes for manufacturing wheel structures from fibre-reinforced plastics (FRP) are often not very flexible or require a high degree of manual work steps. Due to their complex geometry, wheels and wheel-like structures usually consist of a large number of blanks made of flat semi-finished products. As a consequence, the high manufacturing effort and high costs make the use of FRP wheel structures uneconomically in many fields of application.

Our Solution

What are the advantages of our technology?

The CompoSpoke technology is a cost-efficient wet winding process. Fibers are automatically wound onto molded parts and simultaneously formed into wheel structures. The process, for which a patent application has been filed, is currently the only fully variable process for manufacturing monolithic FRP wheel structures from a single continuous fibre. The use of simple fibres leads to a significant reduction of production costs. In addition, the process operates waste-free and thus has a very good environmental balance.
