Resin transfer molding (RTM) specialist Fiber Dynamics (Wichita, KS, US) is emphasizing its turnkey production solutions with design, tooling, machining, fabrication and assembly processes. Fiber Dynamics offers conventional matched-die RTM for complex, lightweight cored and solid laminate structures. It also offers vacuum-assisted RTM (VARTM), which offers autoclave-quality parts at a fraction of the cost, outstanding surface finish, minimal finishing required for paint prep, and use integral stiffeners and cores when extra stiffness with minimal weight is required. Finally, lost core RTM (LCRTM) enables manufacturing of complex, hollow-interior cavities with internal stiffeners and offers intricate assemblies involving metal details, inserts and internal stiffeners with no secondary bonding or fastening; this enables fabrication of integrated/comolded structures, high fiber volume composite geometries, superior control of wall thickness in critical thin-wall applications, and a proprietary manufacturing process. Fiber Dynamics serves customers in aerospace, military, transportation, medical, motorsports, sporting goods and other commercial industries.
