RTM (Resin Transfer Molding) is a process that produces precision parts through injection molding. The process involves a matrix that has been formed into a specific shape. This preform is then placed into the mold cavity in a finished form. The resin is then injected into the mould to create the final part. The custom mold allows for very accurate thickness control, as well as a high quality finish on both the A and B sides.
To make a custom RTM mould, the customer first needs to select a corresponding material and then determine the flange of the part. The flange will depend on the technical requirements and the desired thickness of the finished product. A matched metal tooling is the key to this process, as it will ensure the precise thickness control of the final part, another alternative to RTM, is a cheaper process where the resin is injected through a dry preform. This process is widely used in boat building, and has recently gained popularity in advanced structures.
When it comes to RTM moulding, a vacuum is an integral part of the process. The vacuum is used to assist the resin into the mould. Specifically, it can be used in RTM processes, as it allows for almost any type of reinforcement and catalyst blend. This process requires a cavity or core, and a variety of tools made of composite materials or aluminum. Because of the quality of the resin transfer moulding parts, they can be painted or coated.
Custom RTM Moulds can be made of any material. This process is manual, but can be used for many different applications. It can be used to manufacture parts for a wide variety of industries. There are many advantages to using RTM, including increased strength and weight. It can also be used for the co-curing of metallic inserts and pre-cured details. It is a versatile process that makes it a viable option for manufacturing composite parts.
The RTM process is an automated process that uses an aluminum or steel mould. The tools are made of matched metals. The fibre preform is placed inside the open mould. The resin is injected into the cavity and heated tools assist with the curing process. Once the resin is cured, the part is removed from the mould. You will need to use the custom moulds to create your products. Then, you can choose the best material and the best resin for your business.
