Procedures based on “resin transfer moulding” (RTM) or resin injection are suited for medium or large batches of components that require a material of high rigidity.
The component size is limited because handling the moulds can otherwise be problematic.
Due to the very tight tolerances, reproducible quality, and good surface finish (on both sides) achievable with this method, RTM-produced components can be found in many areas of application. This includes the automotive and commercial vehicle, mechanical engineering, construction and sanitary industries, but also the aerospace, sports and leisure industries. The proportion of products manufactured in Europe using the RTM injection has steadily increased over the past years.
Fassmer has two RTM presses: one 400t and one 630t Dieffenbacher press.
