Introduction to Tooling for Composite Materials Processing
September 27, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
A composite part requires some form of tooling to take shape during the curing or crystallization process. The tooling will also assist in the deposition and alignment of fibre as well as provide the surface finish of the part. Tooling must be able to stand up to the processing requirements such as temperature and pressure required for the composite part and last for many cycles of production.
In this webinar, different materials and construction methods used for tooling are discussed along with basic functions and requirements. Different tooling concepts for different processes will also be explored along with case studies and examples to illustrate the wide variety of options available.
