Large equipment

Short Description

The master mold is used to accommodate various mold inserts for the production of continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites. For this purpose, so-called tape fabrics are inserted into the mold, formed when the mold is closed and then functionalized. The mold is designed for processing a wide range of plastics and can be temperature-controlled up to 200 °C.
