RocTool is now offering a major aerospace leader the possibility to use their Heat & Cool technologies under an exclusive, worldwide license.

RocTool will auction an exclusive, worldwide license in the form of a lump sum, valid for the duration of the patents. It will be granted following a single payment from the buyer, with no royalties attached to the use of the patents.

“This is the first time that RocTool has granted a license that does not rely on royalties. Due to the peculiarities relating to aerospace (long time qualification and relatively low volumes), this new license would allow a major aviation company or group to access these highly advanced technologies and therefore obtain a substantial advantage over their competitors” explained Alexandre Guichard, Chairman and CEO of RocTool.

The exclusive license covers various Heat & Cool technologies, including 3iTech and Cage System, which enable high levels of productivity when working with composites and plastic injection; high temperature heating; cycle-time reduction; energy saving; and better temperature control for improved mechanical properties.

RocTools say its technologies will enable the licence-winning aerospace group to increase its production capacity, lower its costs and, more importantly, have production flexibility.

“We must not forget that an aviation manufacturer has thousands of composite part references and very low volumes of production per tool. The warm-up time is crucial when constantly changing the mould. With RocTool’s technologies, the mould’s optimum temperature is reached in less than one minute, not two hours!” said Alexandre Guichard.

RocTool launched a call for proposals with a selection of Aerospace leaders, notably constructors and manufacturers, and has appointed an independent firm to organise the ‘tender’ and to select the best offer.
