In 1991, Dr. Horst Rothe, an engineer from the Institute of Polymer Research, had the idea to render and fix rovings with an embroidery machine. Through this, there is the possibility to produce the reinforcement structures that are adjusted to the strain of the fiber composite components.

After several years of development this technology called Tailored Fibre Placement (TFP) is used as one of the most important textile processes in company Hightex Verstaerkungsstrukturen GmbH for the production of reinforcement structures
