JHM Technologies Inc. (Fenton, Mich.) is announcing at CAMX what it says is a breakthrough in the high-pressure resin transfer molding (HP-RTM) process. This advancement allows for Class A body panels to be produced with carbon fiber reinforcement at cycle times of less than 10 minutes. The system includes a workcell comprised of low-cost tooling, an injection system and epoxy resins available from an unnamed major resin supplier. JHM says the epoxy resins used are same as those cited for Tier 1 OEM production, yet produce high-quality parts in comparable tooling that were developed at a fraction of the cost. The workcell environment includes improved procedures for loading fiber in hot tools operating at temperatures of more than 250°F/121°C. Other features include small capital investment for injection and clamping, as well as overall workcell infrastructure.
