Design and Engineering
Marcel Bücker is the inventor of the CompoSpoke production technology. He is an expert in designing FRP components and is the mastermind behind our innovations. He graduated as an industrial engineer and earned his degree at the Institute of Composite Materials at the TU Kaiserslautern. Later, he worked as a R&D executive at a German industrial company. His responsibilities in this position included the engineering of products for new business segments.
Dr. rer. pol. habil.
After graduating in industrial engineering and management, Thomas Robbert received his PhD in marketing from the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. Subsequently, he was employed as a postdoctoral researcher in business administration. Besides his scientific work, he worked as a consultant for market and competition analysis, price management and digitalization. Impressed by the innovative CompoSpoke technology, he is now a managing director of Evolime.
Valentin Hörtdörfer is responsible for the implementation of the production technology and spends all his energy on its improvementSince he graduated from the University of Stuttgart with a degree in aerospace engineering, he has been working on various manufacturing processes for fiber reinforced plastics (e.g. 3D winding and braiding processes). Before joining Evolime, he worked as production manager for a German industrial company.
Top-level Research to Industry
Evolime Radial Composites is another successful spin-off from the prestigious Institute of Composite Materials at the Technical University in Kaiserslautern. The commercialization of the underlying CompoSpoke technology is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy and the European Social Fund within the framework of an EXIST research transfer in 2019/20. The EXIST Research Transfer is a program that supports exceptionally innovative product ideas with high potential and strong research needs.
