Foldable body structure

After successful concept development, DITF is in the process of manufacturing individual components of the UrbANT- Folding body structure. Recently, the rolling door has been finished using tapelaying process. Subsequent to the tapelaying process, stiff thermoplastic high-performance carbon fibre tapes were compression molded together with a flexible thermoplastic film.

The alternating rigid and flexible areas enables the door to be rolled up easily while maintaining dimensional stability when closed. Further components like top cover and side walls are currently in production.
