Composites Expert and Institut de Soudure partner to provide interactive advanced composites training to students and professionals worldwide.
The autonomous concept, sufficient for series production, enables lower investment costs. Up to 15 cylinders can be produced simultaneously per operation.
Increasing part production by decreasing injection times, Fast Flow LRTM is said to be capable of injecting a 50 square foot part in under four minutes using only one injection port.
Like other closed molding composites processes, Light Resin Transfer Molding (LRTM) offers reduced waste and emissions, efficient materials use and a consistent and repeatable process. But LRTM requires less costly tooling and can still provide excellent cosmetics on both sides of a part in an efficient manufacturing process.
