UAV Drones
 

UAV & Drones

Unmanned aircrafts and drones for many different applications will drive the future of mobility.

UAV Intro

UAV & Drones

Based on decades of experience in aerospace, CONNOVA is active in the field of professional drones for some years now. As for all aircrafts, the light-weight aspect plays an important role for unmanned aerial vehicles. Each saved kilogram of weight in the airframe means more payload or more range or even both. Our competency in developing and manufacturing of ultra-light structure components guarantees a successful realization of light-weight projects for particularly efficient drones.

Excellence in Space

We have many years of experience in the development and manufacturing of space structures made of composite or titanium components. Regardless of whether particularly high mechanical loads or special thermo-mechanical requirements are required for the harsh conditions in space – our engineers already know the solution or develop it together with the customer.

Automotive
 

Motor Sports & Automotive

Composite structures characterize motor sports from the very beginning. We bring the technology onto the racing track since more than 30 years.

Motorsport Intro

Motor Sports & Automotive

Light and stable composite components are indispensable in motor sports or in the modern automotive industry for premium or sport cars. For formula 1 team of Sauber, we produce composite components already for a long time. Also, for other racing classes or for tuning or special edition cars, we could gather a broad experience in composite applications over the years. So, we can fulfil highest expectations with respect to product and process control in very short time – individually and certified.

KNOW-HOW

Experience in motor sports especially in formula 1 and for tuning or special edition cars

COMPOSITES

Less weight, stiffer car body, better performance

INDIVIDUALITY

Realization of orders within very short time

Excellence in Motor Sports & Automotive

Since the early days CONNOVA develops and manufactures structural composite components as well as high-temperature and aerodynamic components for the formula 1 industry. Since the use of CFRP becomes more and more accepted in the automotive industry, too, CONNOVA works for leading OEMs and large tier1 suppliers in this segment. We invest continuously into more efficient production equipment in order to keep the production processes state-of-the-art.

Defence
 

Defence

Airborne defence systems have to be particularly light. Herefore, the use of composite components offers a big potential.

Defence Intro

Defence

Even massive and ground-based defence systems must be light or still made light for airborne transportation. The exchange of metallic components or sub-assemblies by light and stiff CFRP components is a very typical approach to achieve this goal. Also, for other applications, the use of high-stiffness fibres embedded into a polymer resin matrix is advantageous, e.g., for launch tubes, where typically enormous forces are acting, but extreme form stability is essential – having even less weight than comparable metal tubes.

KNOW-HOW

Broad experience with light and stiff carrier frames, launch tubes or radomes.

COMPOSITES

Less structural weight means better suitability for airborne transportation.

INDIVIDUALITY

High sensibility for the demanding expectations in defence industry.

Placeholder

Excellence in Defence

We have extensive experience in developing and manufacturing composite material solutions for the defence industry. Herefore, hybrid constructions made of fibre-reinforced composites and metallic materials are often used. CONNOVA’s engineers develop new ways in composites together with the engineers of the customers. High quality, highest precision, and a high degree of sensibility for the industry are our standard.

Industry Medtech
 

Industry & Automatization

Composite components become more and more important in machinery, automatization, and robotics due to their superior economy over lifetime – weight saving saves energy!

Industry Intro

Industry & Automatization

CFRP parts and components decrease energy consumption by their lower weight and increase the performance of the final products. This is particularly relevant with respect to highest precision and extremely rapid movements. Fatigue as well as corrosion resistance leads to long endurance and low maintenance costs. On request, we accompany you already during the concept phase and consult your engineers and experts in a competent way. Together with your team, we can fulfil your demanding requirements in shortest time – individually, efficiently, and economically.

KNOW-HOW

Broad experience with machinery, automatization, and robotics.

COMPOSITES

Increased performance with lower energy consumption and low maintenance costs.

INDIVIDUALITY

Close accompanying from early concept phase to full serial production maturity.

Excellence in Industry & Automatization

With composite materials, accelerated masses are significantly reduced. In addition, there are further advantages such as higher stiffness or more suitable eigen frequencies, better resilience, higher vibration damping and improved thermal stability. Often, composites also simplify technical complexity. CONNOVA offers you feasibility studies, product developments and the manufacturing of series components. We support you in assessing your project and accompany you through its successful implementation.

MedTech Intro

Medical technology

High strength, low weight, good corrosion resistance and especially the X-ray transparency make carbon composites particularly interesting for modern medicine. In our long history in composites, we have acquired specific know-how in medical applications. So, we can meet the highest requirements within a short period of time – individually and certified.

KNOW-HOW

Specific experience in many areas of medical technology

COMPOSITES

High strength, low weight, corrosion resistance and X-ray transparency.

INDIVIDUALITY

Close accompanying from early concept phase to full serial production maturity.

Excellence in Medical technology

Carbon composites not only enhance the technical application possibilities, but they also make the handling in daily-use easier. We accompany product designers and other stake holders from the early feasibility study all the way to serial production maturity. We support by evaluation of the project with respect to risks and chances in order to guarantee a successful realisation of the final product.

Consulting Engineering
 

Engineering

For composites different design rules are applicable than for metals. We have these rules in our genes and you have the advantage.

Entwicklung

Engineering

You want to push the limits of traditional materials? Do you have problems with the eigen frequency of your structure; too low stiffness or too much weight? Or do you require X-ray transparency? If possible combined with extremely low thermal expansion? We exactly know what is achievable using composites. We would like to support you from the very first evaluation, to the engineering phase incl. design, simulation, and prototype manufacturing, all the way to validated final serial product.

EXPERTISE

Decades of experience in design and process development for composite components combined with extensive material know-how. You define the requirements; we develop and realize the solution.

FLEXIBILITY

You decide how we get through the finish. Either lean and efficient, more based on experience and product examples. Or with full engineering effort from dimensioning, simulation, detailed CAD design and validation tests with comprehensive documentation. We tailor the effort to your needs.

PROFESSIONALISM

We do not promise to build castles in the sky. Beginning with offering phase we are transparent and detailed. We make sure that you will be at least as inspired as we are when we deliver the product or the service.
