Vermont Composites Adds Resin Transfer Moulding Technology

08 January 2009

Vermont Composites has added low pressure Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) equipment to their manufacturing resources.

The company is currently using it to develop “RTM Light” capabilities on a selection of parts. RTM is the process of infusing resin under pressure into dry fibres preformed and preplaced in a closed cavity mould.

“RTM offers the potential of lower costs on certain higher volume parts,” said Jim Sharkey, Executive Vice President & General Manager, “and VCI will soon be able to offer the benefits of this option to our customers where applicable.”

VCI designs and fabricates advanced composite structures for the aerospace, medical and industrial markets.
