The term tailored LFT refers to parts made of long fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFT) with integrated local part reinforcements in the form of fabric, profiles or parts-specific unidirectional fiber reinforcements. Depending on the application concerned, the proportions and types of fiber used in the continuous fiber reinforcement may differ from those of the long fiber reinforced moulding compound. Thus, with a further development in process engineering, materials tailored from a combination of long and continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastics in combination with flow-optimized polymer melt geometries constitute a serious alternative to metal-plastic hybrid structures.
