The Extra Mile On Industrial Performance
Increasing competition within the Aeronautical and automotive sectors are making composite materials a pivotal factor and so it is driving many manufacturers to reduce the number of rejects, deal with quality control demands, consume less energy and increase production levels.
But creating composite materials require an extremely accurate combination of pressure and temperature. The large thermal inertias in the moulds, the unevenness of the parts and the exothermic nature of the materials introduce delays and significant dynamic changes in temperatures.
Although industrial equipment, conventional control systems and human knowledge have improved constantly, current methods impose limitations on performance. This leads to frequent recourse to manual intervention in the heating and curing cycles giving rise to large temperature deviations.
As a result, there are two expensive consequences:
ADEX Technology has been applied successfully to the thermal curing process of composite materials. With ADEX, the cycles are under automatic control at all times resulting in:
ADEX technology has been productize for RTM self heating moulds and moulds heated within hot plate presses and just requires customization for each plant.
We can apply it to autoclaves and stoves as an on-demand engineering project.
