Composites production technologies
Autoclave / PREPREG: standard in civil aircraft, Formula 1 and best suited for carbon-look cosmetic parts, yielding the lightest possible components with best visual fibre alignment.
(HP)RTM: used for higher-volume automotive applications with cycle times far below one hour.
Prepreg press moulding: used for higher-volume automotive and aerospace applications and where a tooled surface finish is required from both component sides, with cycle times in minutes.
Bladder inflation moulding: for the production of hollow, monolithic structures, we lay-up prepreg in separate tool pieces, place a bladder inside, close the tool, then inflate the bladder during curing.
