TMP Inc., a division of French, the manufacturer of hydraulic press systems, has recently introduced a high temperature rapid heating oven and an automated high temperature composite moulding press system.
The design is a 500-ton, up to 1200F press with an integrated material transfer system. The press can be designed with either 4-post or sideplate construction with a vacuum chamber to suit customer's moulding requirements.
At the start of the process the composite material is moved into the oven to reach the programmed temperature, then moved into the press onto the forming dies. After the pressing cycle, the formed part is automatically moved out of the press for part removal and loading of new material. This space-saving automated design reduces customer's labour costs and processing times. In addition, the composite moulding press system can monitor and record all critical functions and required process data for traceability.
COBRA International is collaborating with Flite, the Australian-based electric foiling surfboard manufacturer, on Fliteboard and Fliteboard PRO – two state of the art, electric foiling composite surfboards that reach speeds of up to 45kmh.
