Case Study: Closed Mold Process Used on Innovative Combine Grain Extension Covers

The closed mold process is a method of working with resin that delivers many benefits. These include reduced waste and emissions, lower material and disposal costs, a more consistent, repeatable process, and reduced cycle times for higher productivity and lower labor costs. When dealing with composites, closed mold processes like light resin transfer molding (RTM), Read More…

Closed mold processes create lower cost precision parts

Closed mold processes can help produce precision parts at a lower cost and can be used in a variety of applications. Traditional composite tooling is typically used for the rigid base – the “A” side mold; different materials can be used for the “B,” or counter, side, depending on the process application. Regardless of the Read More…

Closed Mold Processes are Used to Manufacture Products Made from Corrosion-Resistant Composites

Composite materials are replacing traditional materials such as wood and steel due to their corrosion-resistant properties. Industries, such as the corrosion industry, that often-subject equipment to harsh environmental elements and chemicals require material that can withstand the corrosive nature of the elements without losing strength or structural integrity. Closed mold processes are an efficient way Read More…

Case Study: The Success of Closed Mold Processes in the Wind Energy Industry

The closed molding process is a low-cost solution for high-volume production. This process creates products by curing composite materials, such as fibers or resin, inside a two-sided, closed mold or inside a vacuum. The products made from the closed molding process are highly accurate and require very little post-production work, which makes the manufacturing process Read More…

Inside look: Closed molding course couples talks with concept demos

Billed as a hands-on seminar, the recent Advances in Closed Molding Tool Design and Production Materials event had the feel of a full-blown tech conference. Held May 2-3, 2012, in Cape Coral, Fla., the seminar highlighted the benefits of closed molding and provided attendees with an up-close look at materials and processes used in a Read More…

What is Closed Mold Manufacturing?

Closed Molding is a technology which allows the manufacturing of better polymer composite parts in less time, with less waste, and largely reduced emissions a possibility.  A wide range of industries use closed mold technologies to make precision parts. Industries include aerospace, transportation, and recreation. When identical parts need to be manufactured out of composites Read More…
