Dedienne Multiplasturgy has decided to convert their RocTool Cage System development licence to a production license lasting 7 years.
This will cover two aspects:
A first license for closed mould stamping and RTM processes. The immediate objectives are to pursue developments around the new generations of thermoplastic resin based composites. This will be done on the pilot installation based in Dedienne Composites and to be able to engage in industrial projects of medium and large volume.
A second license concentrates on plastic injection; it will allow firstly the development of new applications from the Group pilot installation, which is in the process of taking place, and to move thus to the large volume production phase.
The markets involved are aerospace, automotive, transport, sport and leisure.
