Plastech have announced the date of their intensive, 3-day hands-on RTM training course in the design and construction of low mass composite tools.
The next RTM tool training course will be held from 9-11 October, with an optional 4th day of training that deals exclusively with Vacuum Moulding, again with both theory and practical demonstration. The programme is based upon well proven technology and is designed to provide delegates with all the techniques and procedures needed to immediately and confidently apply RTM to their individual requirements.
Plastech Thermoset Tectonics Ltd are leaders in Resin Transfer Moulding and have in house the full range of technologies, machinery and support systems that are required by the manufacturer to stay at the forefront of the RTM industry. For full details and registration forms visit their website:
