Sankt Augustin, Germany -- Polyurethane technology firm Hennecke has expanded its PU composite spray-moulding (CSM) portfolio using resin transfer moulding (RTM) technology, it said in a 14 Feb statement.
The company unveiled its latest CSM solutions at the ACMA (American Composites Manufacturing Association) composites trade fair in Fort Lauderdale, Florida at the start of Feb this year.
Hennecke said in the statement that RTM technology allows the company to produce high-performance lightweight parts "fast, efficiently and in high volumes."
The new engineering approach used in the manufacture of fibre-reinforced structural components in a high-pressure RTM process means that curing times are extremely short leading to "optimised cycle times for the whole process," the statement said. LMH
