  • Patent number: 10773545
    Abstract: A vehicle wheel comprising a wheel rim with a rim base made from fiber composite material and a wheel disc. The wheel disc is connected to the wheel rim by a connecting element which is guided through a passage of the rim base and is received in the wheel disc. The wheel rim comprises a connecting arrangement with at least one connecting element and a seal element which covers in a complete and hollow manner a part of one or more adjacent connecting arrangements that extends across the rim outer side of the rim base. A circumferential edge of the seal element is glued in air-tight manner to the rim well. Alternatively, the wheel rim comprises a connecting arrangement with a connecting element and a flexible sealing layer made from plastic and completely covers, by coating, a part of the connecting arrangement which extends over the rim outer side of the rim base. An edge region of the flexible seal layer is connected in an air-tight manner to the rim base.

    Abstract: A vehicle wheel that is connectable to a brake system may include a wheel rim and a wheel disk. The wheel rim and/or the wheel disk may include a support structure comprised of fiber-reinforced plastic. The wheel rim and/or the wheel disk, at least on a side of the support structure that faces the brake system, may have a thermo-function structure that in thermal terms is configured so as to be more conductive than the support structure and is disposed so as to extend in such a manner that thermal energy generated by the brake system is discharged from a first region of the wheel rim and/or of the wheel disk that on account of said thermal energy is highly stressed in thermal terms into a second region of the wheel rim and/or of the wheel disk (3) that is less stressed in thermal terms.

  • Patent number: 10479031
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and a device for infiltrating a fiber preform of a component of fiber composite material with a matrix material. On the method side, it is proposed that an elastic coating (3) is applied onto the fiber preform (1, 23, 37), wherein the elastic coating (3) is widened to form a gap space (22) between the fiber preform (1) and the coating (3). The matrix material (21) is then fed into the gap space (22) and the elastic coating (3) is subsequently pressed against the fiber preform (1, 23, 37). On the device side, it is claimed that an elastic coating (3) is arranged on the fiber preform (1, 23, 37) and means are provided, which are in operative connection with the elastic coating (3), by which the coating (3) can be widened while forming a gap space (22) between the fiber preform (1, 23, 37) and the coating (3). A matrix material (21) can be fed into the gap space (22) and the coating (3) can be pressed against the fiber preform (1, 23, 37).

  • Patent number: 10442243
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a wheel rim having a rim base of a fiber composite material. The problem to be solved by the invention is that of improving the production of the wheel rim, and especially to ensure a reliably functioning wheel structure which can be achieved with little financial and technical outlay. The problem is solved in that during the production of the rim base (2) a connection element (3, 13, 21, 31, 42, 51) is joined to the rim base (2), said connection element (3, 13, 21, 31, 42, 51) being designed and arranged in such a way that a wheel disc (4, 14, 22, 36, 45) can be connected to said connection element (3, 13, 21, 31, 42, 51).

  • Patent number: 10265892
    Abstract: A mold system for a resin transfer molding process is presented, in which a cavity of a workpiece (1) to be produced is fully enclosed circumferentially by a multi-part shaping mold (2). The shaping mold (2) is enclosed in a sealed manner by an outer, two or more part enveloping mold (7, 8). A method for consolidating a fiber composite component with this mold system and a method for producing a fiber composite component on the basis of the RTM process is provided, in which the intermediate space between a shaping mold (2) and a surrounding enveloping mold (7, 8) is filled with resin during the resin injection. After curing the resin initially remains on the shaping mold (2) as a resin body but is destroyed during the demolding of the workpiece (1), at predetermined breaking points. The demolding of the workpiece (1) from the shaping mold (2) is assisted.

  • Patent number: 9586366
    Abstract: A rim well with integrated flange made of fiber composite as well as to a method for manufacturing same. The flange is formed by inwardly directed protuberances of fiber layers of the rim well, wherein the fiber layers transition to the flange from the rim well without interruption of the fibers. The manufacture is carried out by depositing fiber material on a mold, which corresponds to the contour of the rim well and has a radially circumferential or segmented groove. The fibers are deposited such that the fibers of at least one fiber layer have protuberances directed into the groove. A multipart mold, which makes it possible to reduce the width of the groove and thus a deformation of the protuberances, is preferably used.
