Motorola recently received the JEC Innovation Award in the electronic products category for its smartphone composite covers. The company used France-based RocTool’s rapid molding process to develop smartphone covers at a high production rate. RocTool’s technologies combine the molding of nylon, polycarbonate, Kevlar and woven glass fibers.

"RocTool's 3i-tech inductive system was critical to Motorola reaching its production and cycle time targets for the Droid Turbo programs,” said Tom Vondrak, director of sourcing and procurement from Motorola. “It allowed us to reach a target capacity of 50,000 formed parts per day, with minimal tooling investment, while maintaining excellent surface quality and dimensional stability on our formed parts."

“We would like to congratulate Motorola for winning this prestigious award,” said Mathieu Boulanger, president of RocTool. “RocTool technologies are adapted to high volume production, particularly in electronics, automotive, luxury cosmetics and other quality oriented products. RocTool’s induction provides an excellent surface quality and a resin rich surface which is a key requirement in electronics housing.”
