A new adaptation of the 3iTech® technology: an organic fiber suitcase
RocTool announces a new patent to make parts without a press, using an electromagnetic induction mold. With this technology, RocTool can mold all materials, including ecological (linen fibers…)
« Our technology has been adapted to light tooling / out of autoclave. We also want to process much smaller volumes than we currently do with our usual markets, and our contribution lies in the fact that we reduce the cycle time of technologies still using autoclaves to produce parts in a few minutes and in a single mold. This represents massive energy savings. » states José Feigenblum, RocTool's CTO.
RocTool, partners with two Innovations Awards in two categories at JEC Europe 2014
- "Mobile Devices" - Smartphone back cover for Motorola
- "Aircraft Interiors" - Titanium Airplane seat, twice as light as currently on the market for Expliseat.
"Regarding the seat, we use inductive coils directly in a steel compression mold. This exclusive technology meets the challenges to design and manufacture the Titanium Seat. Concerning the Motorola back covers, their excellent surface quality offers many possibilities for the finishing (glossy, matt or textured) which are made possible by the RocTool technology. Furthermore, these aesthetic qualities meet the demand for high speed production." states José Feigenblum.
Heating the mold from 60°C to 160°C in 5.3 seconds: RocTool breaks records
