RocTool SAS is speeding up molding of composites.
The company has introduced a two-step hybrid injection process for thermoplastic plastic composites parts without having to use composite sheets or infrared items. RocTool is aiming the process at the automotive and electronics markets.
The hybrid process uses RocTool's 3iTech process of heating a mold using electromatic induction, which the company says produces a part with no surface defects.
RocTool also is innovating in thermoset composites processing, using its high-speed resin transfr molding technology. RocTool claims to be the only player that can mold thermoset composites parts with fast cycle times of only five to seven minutes, without the need for post-curing.
RocTool is based in Le Bourget du Lac, France. RocTool North America is in Atlanta.
