RIM / RTM / RTM light

(Resin Injektion Moulding / Resin Transfer Moulding)

RIM and RTM are used to produce large, glass-fibre reinforced polyester parts (usually in sandwich construction). This requires double moulds, which are usually made of GFK. Injection and infusion procedures can also be carried out very well with silicone bags or foil.

 

APPLICATION EXAMPLES

This technique allows design and manufacturing problems to be predicted and corrected at an early stage of development, even before the actual injection molding process begins. This shortens the development process, avoids additional costs for tool changes and reduces the time to market.
