ThinKing August – Draping gripping system forms FRP semi-finished materials during transport to improve the speed and quality of RTM processing

17.08.2016

 

In the value chain of resin transfer molding (RTM), the transport of the fiber mat for the production of fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) has not been a step in the process which adds additional value. A newly designed draping gripper system allows the finished fiber mat or reinforcement material can be shaped into the desired form during transport.

This improvement is an important step on the way towards streamlining the production of FRP though the RTM process.
