RocTool has granted a non-exclusive development license for Japan to Marubeni Intex, a subsidiary of the trade company, Marubeni Corporation Textile Group.

This one-year development licence is a way for Marubeni to evaluate the potential of the Cage System, RocTool’s inductive heating process, for the composite industry in Japan. Marubeni-Intex is said to consider the Cage System as a very promising processing technology for different markets in Japan, especially in carbon fibre applications. Cycle time and surface quality are the two main characteristics that Marubeni-Intex is targeting.

This is the first time that the innovative French firm signed an agreement with a Japanese company and its CEO, Alex Guichard, highlighted: “We are convinced that Marubeni-Intex will be a very good partner during this development, knowing their experience and expertise on the Japanese market.” A few of Marubeni’s partner companies are part of the evaluation process and will communicate results the first quarter of 2007.
