Rapitypes To Deliver Us Injection Mould Tooling Process In Uk

01 December 2000





Vantico has chosen Rapitypes as its UK partner for a new prototype
injection mould tooling process, which is capable of producing larger
components such as automotive instrument panels and other large trim
parts much faster and more cost effectively than present methods. During
UK trials of the new process, Rapitypes has developed new cooling
techniques as well as 'cast-in' features such as sprue bushes and eject
pins for the process.

Using materials developed by Vantico, the process brings some novel
features to prototype injection mould tooling, including the application
of a high-grade, definition-producing gel coat to the surface of the
master model. The new base material, which is subsequently added, is a
composite of granular aluminium and epoxy resin that is capable of
withstanding the high forces and pressures generated by large injection
moulding tools. It also offers the option of a bolster-less system,
should this be required.
