German Premium Car Manufacturer and RocTool Company Begin Collaboration

11 March 2005

RocTool and BMW collaborate to adapt the Cage System for the automotive market.

In January 2005, the German car manufacturer BMW Group and RocTool, a French start-up company, have launched a development to adapt the Cage System to the moulding process of some composite parts.

The Cage System is the brand name of the RocTool technology for the rapid transformation of composite parts using an inductive heating system. This process permits the heating of the tooling surface only, thus eliminating the need to heat the entire tool.

“This first development with BMW Group is a further step towards the automotive market” says Matt Boulanger, Business Development Manager for RocTool, “and highlights RocTool’s desire to intensify developments with major companies on quality parts”.
