Low cost in mould monitoring for high speed rtm

Objective

The European commercial industries require new materials with improved performance not reached by the materials currently employed. In this way, composite materials are growing in an important percentage. In the past the processing of organic composite parts was related to techniques that are of low quality, low productivity and environmentally unhealthy. In recent times the development of close mould technologies as RTM are improving the quality and the environment. Although RTM presents a lot of advantages currently the major limitation of the RTM process comes from the need to achieve higher processing rates. Thus, HSRTM is been developed, but the possibilities of this technology are limited by the lack of knowledge of how occurs into the mould. The objective of this proposal is to develop of a monitored system for High Speed RTM process at low cost by the use of a tool consisting on a commercial hardware and a simple software, in order to control process parameters. This improvement of HSRTM process will allow: V to increase the number of parts/day. V to optimise the production cycles, and V to demonstrate the feasibility of HSRTM process for doing structural components at low cost. all of them in confined with the marketplace
