Transfer molding, like compression molding, is a process where the amount of molding material (usually a thermoset plastic) is measured and inserted before the molding takes place.
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance provide you with the latest information about closed mold technologies and the advantages, techniques and opportunities that the closed mold process has over open molding.
This composites manufacturer is betting its one-piece 3-D preform and RTM process will trim weight from today’s fastener-intensive “black aluminum” aircraft doors.
