RAMPF’s Raku-Tool Range Gets New Tooling Paste

14 October 2009

After more than a year of development and testing, RAMPF Tooling has released a new system of tooling paste which they claim delivers significant reductions in time and cost for manufacturers of large production parts. If successful, this system will enable direct tool creation, completely bypassing plug production.

The system was developed through collaboration with Amber Composites and select customers and has been used successfully to create very large tools by manufacturers of boat hulls and decks, as well as large components for use in the transportation industry. The paste, part of RAMPF Tooling’s RAKU-TOOL range, complements their line of epoxy and polyurethane close contour pastes.

Amber Composites has been selected as RAMPF Tooling’s exclusive UK distributor.
