A Message from Smart Tooling, div. of Spintech LLC

Smart Cauls Can Be Made in Almost Any Shape

Smart Cauls are made in the net geometry of the composite part minus composite thickness and can be made in 360° or profile shapes.

Smart Cauls Allow Composite Manufacturers to Achieve Better, Cheaper, Faster

Composite material can be placed directly on the rigid Smart Caul.

Smart Toolings Value Proposition

Smart Tooling is a disruptive tooling solution that enables fabrication of composite products with improved quality, lower cost, and higher through-put ….. in other words we enable Better, Cheaper, Faster.

CAMX offers unprecedented new product access
CAMX 2014, Oct. 13-16 in Orlando, Fla., promises to be North America's largest ever composites trade show and conference. As a result, exhibitors are coming to the event with a wide array of new and existing materials, machinery, software and technology designed to help make composites fabrication faster, easier and more adaptable. CompositesWorld has been gathering information from CAMX exhibitors about what they will be featuring and introducing in their booths. This week's CAMX newsletter offers a preview of some of what you will find on the show floor.

CAMX 2014 preview: Spintech
The Smart Tooling division of Spintech LLC (Xenia, Ohio, USA) will feature its Smart Bladder and Smart Mandrel Tooling solutions at CAMX.

New options for trapped tooling
Trapped tool removal can be difficult, but leaving the tool in place can compromise part weight and function. Here, HPC reports on several new approaches to this demolding dilemma.
