RTM, Prepreg & Thermoplastic Presses
Our line of advanced press systems can be designed for either laboratory applications or production optimization, for various composite molding processes such as Prepreg, Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) and Thermoforming. They provide easy accessibility for mold release agent applications, lay-up and cleaning of both upper and lower molds with 180° rotation opening.
A selection of standard presses is available, however most of our systems are usually custom made according to specifications, to attain the highest possible performance and efficiency. Our presses can be equipped with a choice of hydraulic, electric, pneumatic or mechanical clamping. The temperature regulation system can deliver homogenous temperature distribution with a selection between electric, water or hot oil heating. We offer our expertise in defining the best configuration for your press system as well as the integration of automation and periphery.
All of our workstations are supplied with a customized supervision interface able to:
- Generate and record process data reports and graphs, offer control and traceability of cure cycles and injection via PLC and computer software (Temperature, pressure, time…)
- Manage technical defects
- Automate all movements of the machines (structural, handling...)
- Make the work of the operators easier and safe
