3C-CARBON | 26. May 2020
The 3C-Carbon Group AG from Landsberg am Lech continues to grow dynamically. In order to be able to adjust the production capacities in the Lechrain Technology Park accordingly, an additional autoclave has now been installed on the factory premises after a spectacular transport.
At 3C-Carbon Group AG, a wide variety of components and parts made of carbon fibre reinforced carbon (CFRP/carbon) are produced in autoclaves for renowned high-tech companies. The new autoclave is one of the largest facilities at the headquarters of the 3C-Carbon Group.
The transport from the world's leading manufacturer of such plants, SCHOLZ Maschinenbau GmbH in Coesfeld, Westphalia, to the new destination in Landsberg am Lech was accordingly complex and spectacular. In two nights, the almost 15-metre long and 4-metre wide heavy transport was guided over 700 kilometres through the Federal Republic. Driving licences for transports of this type are usually only available at night and on Autobahnen. Driving on federal highways is only permitted with police escort.
On Friday at 6:40 a.m., the Landsberg police therefore took over the transport for the last 7.5 kilometres at the large roundabout in Landsberg West to the final destination, one of the ultra-modern 3C production halls in the Lechrain Technology Park. There, the enormous plant was brought into the hall with a 180-tonne truck-mounted crane in precision work lasting several hours.
The autoclave belongs to the most modern generation of these production facilities and forms a further building block in the dynamic growth of the 3C-Carbon Group AG. It is one of several current major investments in the technology park.
