AIMPLAS coordinated European project MAC-RTM, funded by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme, is aiming to cover the development of an innovative system for curing resins through microwaves.
The project, which began on November 1st 2011, says it will develop promising technology that will be optimised by using powerful simulation tools of filling and interaction between the electromagnetic field and the resin. The project expects to develop an integrated, technically innovative, ecological and economically feasible system.
According to AIMPLAS, the developments in MAC-RTM will allow the adaptation to resins processed by RTM and RTM light in order to produce medium-volume components with the following advantages:
The research has duration of 2 years, and AIMPLAS expects completion in October2013.
